Pineapple beignets

In Holland they make oliebollen/fritters with New Years. It’s like a family tradition to make pineapple beignets YUM! Tomorrow my niece will stay until the 2nd and of course I have got to make some for her. Now I made a raw vegan version of the pineapple beignets….they are so good!

Makes about 4

  • half cup buckwheat flour
  • half cup (home made) almond flour
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 banana
  • sliced pineapple
  • sweetner (optional)
  • 2 tbsp pineapple juice
  • about 1 tbsp cinnamon

007

  • Mix buckwheat  and almond flour, banana, ground flax seed, cinnamon, pineapple juice. It will look like the picture.

008

  • take a slice of pineapple and coat it with the dough
  • Put it in the dehydrator or in the oven on the lowest setting until firm and no longer sticks to the sheet.

‘Egg’ salad in a cup

One of my friends (Mike Allen) on Facebook suggested to use noni juice  instead of nutritional yeast. Noni juice is raw and nutritional yeast isn’t and it’s supposed to have a more ‘cheesier’ taste. So, with this in mind, I made this recipe today. It turned out tasting like ‘egg’ salad :). Maybe it’s the combo I used with the Brazil nuts and the cauliflower that made it taste eggish. You can eat it for lunch, dinner or as an appetizer.

Start with the base (makes about 6):

You need something like this (small ones)

004edited

  • 2 cups ground flax seed
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • about half cup (filtered) water
  • 2 tbsp paprika powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • Mix all ingredients and  make the base about half a finger thick
  • Stick it in the dehydrator or in the oven on the lowest setting until they are firm (not like a cracker) When they are done let them cool off in the baking pan.

Filling:

  • half cauliflower finely ground
  • half red bell pepper finely chopped
  • half zucchini finely chopped

Sauce:

  • 200 gr/ 6.76 oz Brazil nuts (soaked)
  • quarter cup noni juice
  • 1 cup (filtered) water
  • half tsp tumeric
  • half tsp sea salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • blend all ingredients
  • add the sauce to the cauliflower ( about 7-8 tbsp) or more if you prefer and mix
  • add the bell pepper and zucchini and you will get this ….Voilà

Enjoy!

Lazy afternoon

Had a lovely afternoon with Féline yesterday. She loved the fruit snack on a stick very much while watching her favorite DVD Hello Kitty.

I made some raw white raisin syrup as a replacement for the regular sweetener I use. It really tastes great and will try to make some out of dried apricots.

  • cup white sundried raisins soaked for a few hours in 1 cup water
  • half tsp cinnamon and half tsp vanilla
  • Blend raisins with soak water, cinnamon and vanilla.

Getting ready for the holidays and started on some new raw  cookie recipes. Hopefully, I’ll be posting the recipes in time for Christmas.
