Hello again from Vivian. You can see I am continuing my fascination with rhubarb.
Let’s have dessert!
Why anyone wants to eat any other way than the vegan way boggles the mind, well my mind at least!
VEGAN RHUBARB CHEESECAKE
by A House in the Hills
Here’s another terrific recipe. I just got through tasting it down at my neighbor’s. She has become our test kitchen but is moving back to Atlanta and going to culinary school to become a Vegan Chef. We are so excited for her but we are going to miss her so.
5 cups rhubarb, chopped into 1″ pieces
2 lemons, juiced
5 tablespoons honey (sub agave for true vegan)
3/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup pecans
3/4 cup dates
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3 cups cashews, soaked overnight
1/4- 1/2 cup lemon juice (start with 1/4 add more to taste)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Coconut Milk Whipped Cream
1 can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated for 24 hours
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup, to taste
It’s no bake too. Hooray! Go here for directions »
HEALTH BENEFITS OF RHUBARB FROM MERCOLA
“The rhubarb’s slender red and green stalks contain a singular set of nutrients that make it a healthy vegetable.
“In fact, we owe a debt of gratitude to ancient Chinese folk medicine for the background work on rhubarb cures and remedies that today’s scientist have substantiated and expanded on:
• fiber for ease in digestion
• vitamin K for healthy bone growth and neuron function in the brain
• natural antioxidation from vitamins C and A
• anti-infection properties
• healthy skin, mucous membranes and vision
• potential cancer protection
Other vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients in rhubarb, including outstanding amounts of calcium, offer essential support and optimal health benefits throughout the body.” See source.
Jane Allin just taught us that rhubarb can also ward off the symptoms of menopause.
Wouldn’t it be nature’s great joke on Pfizer if simply adding rhubarb to our diets made its carcinogenic drugs derived from animal waste (i.e. Premarin = pregnant mare’s urine) obsolete.
I think I will go and toast that idea with a rhubarb smoothie. Cheers!
