Submitted by coordinator on 8 January, 2014 - 14:25

Thinking of cooking some vegan food in 2014? From this month's feature cookbook, written by our very own wonderful staff member Karo (vegan chef extraordinaire!), Karo's nutritious and delicious cruelty-free dishes is now available to buy in shop.

Raw, vegan, gluten free.

Ingredients

Crust:

1 cup pitted dates – soaked for 20 min

2 cup desiccated coconut

 

Filling:

3 avocadoes

3 tbsp of agave syrup optional

¾ cup of coconut butter

10 tbsp of raw cacao powder

2 cup pitted dates

2 tbsp orange zest

1 tbsp desiccated coconut, orange zest or grated dark chocolate to decorate (optional)

Method

Crust:

First, process the dates until they are mashed. Add the desiccated coconut and process until well mixed. Press the dough firmly into a 9- inch pie dish. Put in the fridge to set.

Filling:

For the filling, melt the coconut oil by placing it into a tub of warm water. Process the dates until they are mashed. Add the avocados, agave syrup, orange zest and coconut oil and process thoroughly into a smooth creamy, unctuous mousse. Add the cacao powder last. This will ensure that all the powder blends in well. Spread onto the pie- crust and decorate with desiccated coconut, orange zest or grated dark chocolate. Put in the fridge to set.
