Bartlett Pears with Cinnamon Cranberry Sauce and Spiced Ginger Cream (raw)
Pistachio Loaf is a dense breakfast loaf speckled with beautiful pale green crushed raw pistachios and has a chewy texture. Served with raw strawberry jam and smooth and creamy raw cashew nut milk, it makes a scrumptious, healthy, raw vegan breakfast.
I have to say that a very special lady inspired me to make this recipe. It is because of her wonderful loving sweet conscious presence during the making of this recipe and styling – photography that such joy emanates from the pictures. I hope you enjoy these sweet moment with Monique, pistachio “bread”, fresh strawberry jam & a delicious glass of cashew milk. Some moments are just meant to share with heartfelt warmth.
Serves about 4 people

2 cups almond flour
1 cup warm water

A pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt

For the Strawberry Jam:
1 punnet ripe strawberries (without the green stalks)
2 cups of pure raw honey
1 orange zest, dehydrated

For the Strawberry Jam
For the Cashew Milk:

For the Strawberry jam and the loaf: I did this during the winter, and each dehydrator works slightly different depending on the design and weather conditions. So be your own judge.
Baking is a sensitive chemistry and so it works slightly different depending on your logic of working.
Pistachio loaf raw vegan and is alternative to the regular bread at breakfast. It is healthy with almond flour and pistachios. No extra sweeteners are added in the loaf or cashew nut milk and the only sweetener is the raw vegan strawberry jam. It is really delicious, filling and is a real treat for special occasions.
Almond flour is ground almonds and is a very good alternative to wheat flour. It also has a low GI, and so is also good for diabetics.
Pistachios have a mildly sweet nutty taste. Most often, these are available as salted, but raw unsalted pistachios are also available. These are good sources of protein, B vitamins and phytonutrients.
Cashew nuts are mildly sweet and have a creamy buttery taste. These are so versatile, and can be made into flour, paste, and milk to use in a variety of recipes.
Ripe strawberries have a sweet aromatic fragrance and fresh ripe ones are good sources of vitamin C.
This raw strawberry jam has a fragrant aromatic flavor because of the cinnamon, cardamom and orange zest used in it and is much better than the plain old strawberry jam
A dehydrator is used at 110 F (the normal optimal temperature of 40-42 C) in this recipe to make the loaf and the strawberry jam. It maintain the temperature to remove excess moisture and make it into a loaf.
