    Raw Plant-Based Christmas Hampers are here!

    Raw Plant-Based Christmas Hampers are here!

    You guys,

    This is pretty exciting!

    I've been working around the clock to create the most beautiful, the most delectable, the most special and the most festive hampers of your most healthiest dreams...

    How my days look recently:

    I wake up, get Lake ready for nursery, check the dehydrator, squeeze oranges, get high on smelling brandy, soak more seeds/ nuts/ dried fruits in said o.j. and brandy, blend up the Xmas mince pie 'dough' mixture, spend hours carefully forming the mince pie bases, check the dehydrator, run out of organic supplies, order more online or run (read: crawl with my 8 month bump) to the shops or Tanya's in Chelsea, chop/ blend/ mix/ spread all the ingredients for the grawnola, collect Lake from nursery and keep her entertained by seeing how many soaked almonds she can peel for me, answer questions about the hampers on social, look for another way to entertain a bored toddler, get her involved in sampling everything in the dehydrator (always regret this bit- she eats A LOT!), give Lake a bath, make dinner together, eat and clean up, blend up the Xmas pudding mixture, spend hours forming the puds while listening to Xmas tunes and checking out Lake's latest moves that she wants to show me and to try out for myself of course, do the longest bed time routine imaginable (probably due to a hyper child after dance party), then once she's singing happily to herself in bed at 9pm, I return to the most festively scented kitchen for the final and most peaceful hours left in the day.

    And honestly.. I love every single moment.

    Christmas is truly the most magical time of year and since I really don't know what life with two kids will be like, I wanted to make this Christmas the most satisfying, which very much involves satisfying all of your requests for Raw Organic Xmas Hampers that we've been getting since first opening Tanya's in 2014.

    Raw Layered Red Velvet Cake

    Tanya Maher's Raw Vegan Red Velvet Cake Dairy-free Gluten-free

    Firstly... THIS comment:

    "Tanya Maher's cake was incredible- the first non beetroot tasting beetroot red velvet cake I've ever had - and want to make."

    - Anna Mendonca after my demo at The Wellbeing Now Seminar

     

    Secondly... THIS picture:

    Tanya Maher pregnant

    There's a very happy baby boy inside getting so many benefits from all the beetroot I've been feeding him... But seriously, how is THAT bump only 7 months? 

     

    Thirdly... THESE benefits:

     beetroot beet powerful benefits for skin, pregnancy, iron, vitamin c

    (Screenshot taken from @earthyandy post on Instagram. So perfectly timed as we're both pregnant and I was just starting to wonder why I'm enjoying beets so much lately)

     

    Finally... Why are you still here reading and not making this beauty?

    Oh and you do remember that THEEE SALE ends at 23:59 GMT tonight, right? Equipment, books, superfoods and supplements- up to 65% off!>>

     

     

    RAW RED VELVET CAKE

    Serves 8-12

     

    Tanya Maher's Raw Red Velvet Cake

    For the red cake

    3 cups almond meal (left from making milk out of 4-5 cups soaked almonds)*

    1/2 cup + 1 tbsp  beetroot juice (from about 2 beets)**

    8 medjool dates, de-stoned or 16 soft pitted dates

    4 tbsp xylitol

    3 tbsp cacao powder

    ½ vanilla pod, seeds only

    ½ tsp Himalayan salt

     

    For the icing

    2 cups cashews, soaked overnight

    3/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil, melted

    1/3 cup + 2 tbsp xylitol

    juice of 1 lemon (4 tbsp)

    ½ vanilla pod, seeds only

     

    For the optional decorations

    goji berries

    mulberries

    edible flowers

     

    *The prepared almond milk will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge and actually is an amazing accompaniment to this cake. Otherwise make superfood shakes or freeze in ice cube trays to use in smoothies later. I make my almond milk blending 1 cup soaked nuts + 2.5 or 3 cups water + 3 pitted dates + pinch salt, then straining.

    **If you don’t have a juicer, use a blender. Blend up the beetroot and strain the juice through a nut bag/ cheese cloth. I blend approx. 3 small beets with 1/3 cups water.

    -For the icing, firstly scrape out the seeds from a whole vanilla pod. To do so, slice the pod in half lengthwise, then use a teaspoon to literally scrape all the seeds out until the inside of the pod is dry.

    -Blend all the icing ingredients till creamy. Transfer to the fridge while making the cake. (Be sure not to leave it there to solidify fully, we just want to cool it to a spreadable consistency).

    -Process all the red cake ingredients in a food processor with an S blade.

    -Now for the tricky/fun part: divide the red cake mixture into three equal parts, take one part and distribute it along the bottom of a 7 inch cake tin with a removable base (wrap the base in cling film), firmly pressing it down with your hand or a soft spatula. The trick here is not to spread a layer of icing and then add another layer of cake, as it will all turn into one big mess when you try and make a firm smooth layer of the cake again… so…

    -Carefully remove the layer of cake with the base and flip it over onto a clean serving plate. Remove the metal base, then the cling film. Spread a layer of icing on top. Repeat this process of creating the red cake layer two more times, each time carefully removing it out of the cake tin, placing on top of the frosting layer and icing it again.

    -When all three layers of red cake and icing are structured into a cake, use the remainder of the frosting to cover the sides of your cake, until the red colour is no longer peeking through.

    -Decorate with berries / dried fruit of your choice.

    -Place in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours to set, then slice with a sharp knife, wiping it clean with a paper towel in-between.

    World Nachos Week + Raw Vegan Nachos Recipe!

    World Nachos Week + Raw Vegan Nachos Recipe!

    It's World Nachos Week!!!

    Well, Nachos Day was yesterday 6th November actually, but I would happily devote an entire week to nachos, so let's not limit ourselves to a single day, shall we?

    I'd be the first to admit that the Nachos dish is one of those things I miss most of all about the restaurant days of Tanya's Cafe...

    You do require a dehydrator to make them so I never thought to publicise the recipe, but seeing just how many of you have taken advantage of the 50% OFF discount code for my beloved Sedona Dehydrator and are now proud owners of this super exciting toy in your kitchen, I feel it is my obligation to supply you with really really good dehydrator recipes.

     

    So here is one, delivered to you straight from the files of cafe (Tanya's Phase 1.0) before the deli (Tanya's Phase 2.0)...

     

    Raw Living Nachos 

    tanya's raw dehydrated nachos recipe

    (This Instagram picture is by @itseileens. The featured blog post image above is by @monicabeatrice)

     

    For the nachos:

    2 cups sunflower seeds, soaked 2-4 hours

    2 cups frozen sweet corn, thawed

    2 cups (600g) courgettes, chopped 

    2 cup (115g) sundried tomatoes, soaked 2-4 hours

    2 tablespoons lemon juice

    2 tablespoons cumin

    2 teaspoons salt

    1 teaspoon garlic powder

    ½ teaspoon cayenne

     

    -Transfer all the ingredients into a food processor with an S blade (or a high powered blender for a smoother crisp) and process until you get a mixture, which resembles a paste.

    -Separate the mixture into 2 equal portions and spread each half over a teflex sheet. Using a spatula, bring the mixture as close to the edge of the sheet as you can without it separating. Transfer both trays to the dehydrator and set it at 47 degrees C for 10 hours.

    -Place a mesh tray over the cracker and holding both trays together at each end, quickly turn them over, then peel off the teflex sheet. Return the trays to the dehydrator for another 15 hours. Chop up the large plank of ready cracker into equal sized squares, then halve into triangles and store in an airtight container.

     

    The Uncook Book by Tanya Maher and Hay House

    If you have The Uncook Book, serve with:

    Oyster mushroom meat (p. 98)

    Guacamole (p. 105)

    Cashew soured cream (p. 106)

    Pineapple salsa (p. 64)

     

    If you don't have the book or you're pressed for time, serve with:

    Lazy salsa and raw vegan taco meat >>

     


    By the way, in the below pictures you will see how the nachos appear being produced in a food processor vs a blender...

    Longevity with Tanya - Retreat schedule, menu and workshop program

    Longevity with Tanya - Retreat schedule, menu and workshop program

    The countdown to the most incredible event of the year has officially begun!

    Did you know that I’m hosting a magical rejuvenation retreat, happening 11-16 October, in pure paradise called Sardinia?


    It’s not a detox retreat, it’s not a fasting holiday, instead...

    WE. SHALL. EAT!

    And not just eat anything- you will enjoy the freshest locally-sourced organic fruits and veggies as well as exotic superfoods and sprouted seeds, made into gourmet raw vegan dishes.


    AND I will teach you how to make them all so you will go home completely purified, satisfied, ‘meditated’, yoga’d, inspired, energised and equipped with new skills for life.


    One of the people attending this retreat has been my coaching client for years and she valued the 5 day program to be AT LEAST 4 TIMES MORE expensive than it is.

    So I guess you can call it one heaven of a bargain :)

    Here are some love notes from dear clients:

     

    "Tanya really knows her stuff. Having had her as my coach for three years, I sincerely believe that her retreat is well below its true value. Being in her presence is powerful enough, but having Tanya teach you her very best recipes, nutritional information and meditation practices is life changing in the very best way."

    -Marianne Daniels, USA

     

    "I suffered with migraines, bloating, severe aching and burning limbs, constant reflux, regurgitation and heartburn, severe fatigue, lack of concentration, anxiety and depression. Just days after learning from Tanya, I could feel the burning in my stomach and joints has gone down dramatically, as well as all aches and pains. My reflux and heartburn have reduced by at least 70%. I found it most helpful to discover what the alkalising foods are and how they rate on the pH scale, so if I'm ever feeling acidic, I just refer to the list, make Tanya's recipes and quickly feel better."

    -Loretta Murphy, Australia

     

    "Tanya is a fantastic example of how to live a life with passion and purpose. She gives an amazing amount of value every time she is with clients. I love to work with experts and learn from the best, Tanya definitely ticks that box. If you are interested in finding what real health and energy feel like, then a fantastic start would be to see Tanya in action, you will never regret it." 

    -Graham Harris, UK
