Too many amazing recipes – I can’t choose which one to blog about.

The day was again absolutely jam packed full of a variety of recipes.  We made Vegi Anitpasto; Irish Moss; Spiced Mexican Cabbage; Guacamole (different to any I’ve made before); Onion Rings; Buckwheat Granola infused with essential oils and Carrot and Apple Kuchen (cake)…

1/2 cup shredded coconut (plus 2 Tbsp. to garnish)

Method:

Mix ingredients in a large bowl until well combined.  This is easiest done with your hands.

Sprinkle some shredded coconut into the bottom of a form springform pan.

Pack the mixture into the pan and flatten well.

Cashew Cream Frosting

In a food processor, combine together 1 cup soaked cashews, 3 Tbsp. agave nectar and 1 Tbsp. lemon juice.
