The classic Linzer torte will often be featured on the tables of Austrian households during the holidays. Made with a hazelnut or almond pastry, the torte is filled with a layer of red currant or raspberry jam. It’s traditionally topped with a decorative lattice of pastry. Taking inspiration from this decadent treat, this smoothie will cleverly curb your pastry cravings.
If making the lattice design on top of these smoothies seems a bit fussy, try rolling the crust mixture into small balls and scattering them over the smoothie.
Make the Linzer lattice crust: In bowl, stir together hazelnut butter, agave, cinnamon and orange zest with wooden spoon until well combined. Add hazelnut meal and oat flour and combine into hazelnut butter mixture until stiff dough forms. Gather dough into a ball and divide into 3 pieces. Between pieces of parchment paper, roll out each piece of dough into a square about 1/8 inch thick and wide enough just to overhang the top of your serving glasses. Refrigerate until firm, about 15 minutes.
Peel back parchment paper and cut each dough square into 4 strips. On another piece of parchment, form strips into 3 works of lattice. Freeze on flat surface until ready to use.
Make the red berry smoothie: Add all ingredients except fresh raspberries to blender and combine until smooth and creamy.
To serve, divide smoothie among serving glasses. Using spatula, transfer each lattice so that it sits on top of a serving glass. Trim edges of lattice so they are flush with serving glass, if desired. Garnish with fresh raspberries and serve immediately.

Spanish-inspired flavours of almond and orange and a good punch of protein make this pudding a delicious and nutritious breakfast, snack, or dessert.

Breaking with tradition, think of this as a guise of tabbouleh salad with staying power, thanks to the addition of hearty sorghum and fibre-rich navy beans. It also ages fairly well, so it serves as a make-ahead meal that can keep for up to 3 days. A perfect plant-based option for weekday lunches.
This versatile salad featuring chickpeas in a bright, fragrant dressing, holds well in the fridge. Make it in advance or keep it for leftovers. Nigella seeds, also known as kalonji, lend a sweet, nutty flavour with an ever-so-slightly bitter edge that pairs perfectly with sweet potato’s sweetness. Chickpeas please! Chickpeas are a great source of dietary fibre; just 1 cup (250 mL) contains 42 percent of the recommended daily allowance. They’re also a very good source of manganese, which is important for calcium absorption and blood sugar regulation.
