Basic Fermented Cashew Cheese

I really can't emphazise enough how impressed I really am after I started making vegan cheese. I started with very simple recipes that were not super satisfying as a cheese sub -- but good enough -- and now I feel I'm really enhancing my skills :)

This one could fool ANYBODY.

Fudgy Beetroot Chocolate Cake with Pink Frosting

How about another cake made with beets? And in this recipe there's not even the need of flax eggs, since the beets themselves are a perfect binding agent. ENJOY this fudgy piece of heaven!

For a refined sugar/gluten-free version I made these changes:

- My frosting was made with raw vegan sweet condensed milk with a dash of beet juice.
- I used Xylitol for the sugar in the cake batter.
- Made it gluten-free with gluten-free oat flour for the spelt.

Mediterranean Salad With Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas are perfect in salads, specially when they can be as crunchy as breadcrumbs and much more nutritious than them. They are definitely the highlight here.
