So for all you lovelies who have asked for the recipe here it is! Finally in one place rather than on separate posts.

Cashew cheese
  1. Really easy, just add all the ingredients to your food processor and blitz until smooth and creamy.
Flatbread Pizza Base
  1. To make the buckwheat flatbread; pre-heat a griddle pan (or frying pan) so that its nice and hot.
  2. In a bowl mix the flour, oil, baking powder, salt & pepper and then add the water. Mix to form a dough and knead a little so that it comes together and then divide into two.
  3. On a floured chopping board roll out the dough and then place on a griddle pan (griddle pans work the best as you get lovely charred stripes on the flatbread but a frying pan also works).
  4. The flatbread will literally cook in a couple of minutes, simply flip it over when the underside is starting to char and cook on the other side a minute or so longer.
Beetroot Hummus
  1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4 and then place your nuts on a baking tray to toast slightly (this should take aprox 5 minutes, keep your eye on them to make sure they don’t burn). Allow to cool.
  2. If using pre cooker beetroot drain the beetroots and then tip them into your blender.
  3. Add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini, cumin seeds, nuts and olive oil.
  4. Blitz until smooth (aprox 2 minutes). Season to taste
