Raw Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Blueberry Caviar

Serves 4.


    Raw Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Blueberry Caviar 

    Raw broccoli and cauliflower are detox superstars, containing nutrients that cleanse, restore, and nourish the body—skin included. Blueberries are known for their antiaging nutrient density and offer natural sweetness to cut the broccoli’s pungency. This “caviar” can be left to marinate for up to two days, so you can snack to your skin’s content or add it to a larger meal.



    If raw broccoli and cauliflower don’t agree with your digestive system, give them a light steam before making the caviar.

    Mandarin Orange Chocolate Almond Cake

    Mandarin Orange Chocolate Almond Cake

    The combination of warm chocolate and the coveted mandarin orange makes this a holiday classic perfect for an intimate dinner party. Almond flour along with hemp hearts deliver healthy fats and protein and keep the cake gluten free and moist, removing the need for any additional oil or butter in the batter. A tiny drizzle of olive oil poured over the mandarin-encrusted top and a pinch of salt bring out the sweet flavour of the mandarins. Mandarin top Zest mandarins and reserve 1 Tbsp (15 mL) zest for use in the recipe. Set mandarins aside, leaving them unpeeled. When cake is baked, trim mandarins by slicing off top and bottom to form a flat edge. Then placing mandarin on the edge with peel, slice into 3 equal wheels. Repeat for each mandarin. Now, gently remove peel, being careful to keep wheels intact, and arrange on top of the cake, filling in holes with smaller sections trimmed from a wheel.
