Special Recipe! Green Curry Cake Anyone? Back in the Kitchen Celebration! (Vegan/GF)

in vegan •  3 months ago

Yes, I said CURRY CAKE! Bring your grumbling tummies here!

Since I've been off galavanting again, I wanted to make something extra special for my return to my kitchen!

I was standing in my kitchen feeling estranged from it. I had been away for over 3 weeks and it seemed so foreign to have to cook something for myself after being spoiled eating all over the place at so many amazing vegan restaurants in Canggu, Singapore and Hong Kong.

What to make?

I began making almond cheese by default with the nuts I had been soaking but I wanted something really out of this world unique!

I looked at my brother's locally grown, organic rice that I had soaking on my counter.... Hmmmm I thought.

Before I knew it, this incredible curry cake was being born!

Want to watch how it came to life?

What to do:

Pre-cooking:

  • Start by soaking your cashews and rice overnight!
  • Drain rice and cook as normal.
  • Drain and rinse cashews and set aside.
  • Marinate tempe in the ingredients under "topping", put in fridge until needed.
  • Marinate mushrooms, onion and peppers in the green curry spice with coconut oil (optional)

Base:

  • Combine rice, cashews, spice, coriander and nutritional yeast in a food processor and blend together until smooth.

  • Smooth it out into a cake pan that has been gently coated with coconut oil and put it in the oven at 190'C for 30 minutes.

Middle:

  • Chop up your veggies, if you are marinating the onion mixture, take them out of the fridge

  • With a small amount of coconut oil, throw the onion mix (mushroom, onion, bell pepper, green curry and coconut oil) into a pan and cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes

  • Once you are smelling their combined flavors, add in the broccoli and carrots and cover. Cook on low until the veggies are soft.

Topping:

  • Get the tempe from the fridge and fry it with some coconut oil, make sure it cooks evenly on both sides.

  • Chop it into strips and set aside.

Icing:

  • Combine all icing ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour into a sauce pan on low heat, heating until warm to the touch being careful to keep stirring so peanut butter does not burn to the bottom of the pan!

Building the cake:

  • Take the base out of the oven

  • Spread half of the sauce mixture evenly across the base

  • Build up the center high with the middle mix of veggies!

  • Place the tempe slices around the entire cake.

  • Spread the rest of the icing all over the top!

Now you have a choice... you can 1) eat it now or 2) bake it a little longer. The choice is yours!
