Ingredients
  

2x Flax Eggs

  • 3 tbsp Flaxseed Meal Ground
  • 9 tbsp Water

Dry ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 cup Coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup Shredded coconut, Unsweetened
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground Nutmeg

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil or butter
  • 1/4 cup Local Raw Honey
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 tsp Pure vanilla extract

To make the "drizzle"

  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon Fresh or frozen
  • 2 tbsp Local Raw Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract

To make the "cream cheese filling"

  • 1/2 cup Cashews, Raw Soaked, 1hr in hot water
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1.5 tbsp Local Raw Honey
  • 1/2 tbsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan Salt

Instructions
 

Flax Eggs

  • Add the 3 tbsp of ground flax seed to 9 tbsp of water, and let sit for 5 minutes until it becomes goopy

Making the Cake

  • Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease 1 x 9" cake tin with a little coconut oil
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well
  • In a second large mixing bowl, combine all the wet ingredients and mix well
  • Combine all the wet ingredients into the Dry, and mix well
  • Pour the batter into the cake tine and bake for 20-25 minutes, remove from the tin, let it cool

Making the "Drizzle"

  • Combine all the "drizzle" ingredients, blend until creamy smooth

Making the Cream Cheese Filling

  • Place all the "cream cheese filling" ingredients in your food processor, add 1 tbsp of the drizzle from above and blend until creamy.

Building the Cake

  • This is probably the most complex part of the cake... and depends on how many layers you want it to have. For a double layer, cut the cake half, spread the filling on the bottom layer. Place the second cake layer on top, and spread with the remaining filling. Finish with the "drizzle" with a little artistic flair. If you want 3 layers... see the notes for suggestions.

Notes

1 tbsp of Ground Flax Seed, mixed with 3 tbsp, is equivalent to 1 large egg

If you want to make a triple layer cake, then make 3 of the cake layers above.  IMPORTANT: do this in 3 separate batches, as the flax doesn't scale that well for larger quantities.... so you make the whole recipe above for one cake layer, and make it again for another.  Then build as above (except no need to cut the single layer in half) The "triple" cake should comfortably make 12 slices.

Servings 2 people
Calories 399 kcal

Ingredients
  

  • 4 oz Red Onion
  • 2 cups Fresh spinach roughly chopped (or substitute for kale if you prefer)
  • 8 oz Baby Bella Mushrooms or mix it up with your favorite type
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Basil leaves roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fresh or Dried Sage
  • 3 cloves Garlic diced
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 cup Chicken stock Home made is best
  • 4 oz Roast chicken Chopped I used roast chicken meat
  • 1/4 tsp Salt & ground black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Saute the onions in the coconut oil, over a medium heat until they have softened, but not browned
  • Add in the mushrooms and garlic stirring regularly until the mushrooms are cooked through, usually around 3-5 minutes
  • Stir in the spinach and cilantro, and allow the spinach to wilt slightly (for the freshest result, we want to cook the spinach as little as possible)
  • Carefully poor the hot mixture into a blender and blend until smooth
  • Remove the center cap from the blender lid, and on a low setting, pour in the coconut milk
  • Once combined, turn off the blender and split the soup between 2 bowls
  • Sprinkle the remaining chicken pieces onto the top of each soup and serve
  • If the soup needs reheating, simply pour back into the pan, and heat over a low setting until steaming.

chicken and mushroom soup
TOPTIP : Don’t spend too long chopping/prepping, its going in a blender at the end anyway 🙂
If you’d like to add a little kick, then 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper goes really well in this dish, but does mean it wouldn’t be nightshade free
Swap out spinach for Kale, add different mushrooms, or even other meats, you can switch up pretty much anything to make it a little different.
