Bye Bye VeganMofo2014.
Ultimately I signed up to VeganMofo for myself. I really enjoyed it, though it was hard on days to come home from work and blog pretty much every single day in the month of September, but I think I just about managed it.
I've stumbled upon some lovely new vegan blogs (thanks especially to VeganMofo Randomizer) and re-acquainted with some old fellow bloggers. Its been nice; and most of all I have been inspired and have bookmarked a number of wonderful, innovative and delicious vegan recipes (many that I really cannot wait to make).
To show my appreciation to the good people who organise VeganMofo every year, and all those bloggers that came along, especially those that that took time to leave a comment on my humble little blog, well I offer this Raw Beetroot - Coconut Halwa Hearts. Thank you. Thank you so so much for welcoming this Welsh vegetarian into your warm VeganMofo arms.
This is pretty much the same recipe as the Betroot 'Bounty' Bars, but here they are completely naked and raw Grrrrrr served simply on a plate. This is not a dessert to eat with your fingers, unless you want beet red fingers. Just enjoy every bite - its awesome!
Raw Beetroot and Coconut Halwa Hearts Fudge
Makes depends on the size of your moulds from 8 - 12
185g medium raw beetroot, peeled and roughly chopped
150g soft dates
50g dessicated unsweetened coconut
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Put all the ingredients into a food processor (I used my Optimum 9400 Blender) and blitz, not to a puree though, more liked grated coconut until it comes together like a dough. Scrape out into a bowl, and press into your chosen moulds. Put in the fridge and allow to firm up in the fridge, preferably overnight.
Remove from the moulds the following day and enjoy.
Keep refrigerated. Consume with the week.
