Plant-based coconut parfait

Parfait: a rich cold dessert made with whipped cream, eggs, and fruit. As this is plant-based, it won’t contain eggs nor whipped cream. Parfait also means ‘perfect’ in French. It could have been if I had managed to whip the coconut milk and used 3/4 cup of coconut milk rather than 3/4 of the can. Despite not nailing it on my first attempt, this was a pleasant breakfast.

Method

  1. Rinse the buckwheat and add 1/2 cup water to a pot. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes
  2. Pour the water off the top of the solidified coconut milk and into a mixing bowl.
  3. Whip the coconut milk until fluffy in a mixer or with a hand whisk. Divide the whipped coconut between two bowls, then mix the cocoa powder into one batch and the crushed raspberries into the other batch.
  4. Halve the cherries and dice the banana, then place them in a bowl.
  5. Add the buckwheat, raspberry cream, and half the cherries. Top with the cocoa cream, chia seeds, blueberries and the remaining cherries.

It’s hot. Very hot. Very very hot. So no surprise I’ve got more trips to the freezer than my local swimming pool. We have a wide range of choices when it comes to plant-based ice cream.

Salted Caramel Apple Crumble

A friend gave me the best crumble recipe you can get. It’s very French, it has lots of butter in it. And it’s versatile too: apple, apple and pear, apple and blackcurrant, apple and rhubarb, rhubarb, pear, etc. But, moving to a plant-based diet, I had to burry the recipe and start looking for a new one.

My recent plant-based kohlrabi schnitzel being a success, I decided to do the same with some awesome turnips from Riverford. But this time, in a katsu curry style.

Plant-based Kohlrabi Schnitzel

I’ve seen and heard about kohlrabi before. It’s probably the only vegetable my dad can come up with a recipe: the kohlrabi remoulade. I wanted something different, plant-based, and schnitzel was the perfect way to do it.
