Christel's Easter Creations



What an imagination! Christel came up with these special Easter treats: "eggs" made from cashew cream, served on a bed of steamed veggies, and a bunny (and other cookies) made from chickpea dough.


For the "eggs":
240 ml1 c. cashews
240 ml1 c. water
Kala Namak to taste (sulphuric salt imitating typical egg flavor)

For the rabbit (and other cookies):
2 small (240g/8.4oz) cans chickpeas, rinsed
8 pitted dates
120 ml1/2 c. raisins
one banana


The eggs are made with cashew cream, Agar Agar and Kala Namak ( a special sulphuric salt, imitating the typical egg flavour ). Here are the details on cooking with Agar-agar:

An Easter egg silicone form provided the right shape for the liquid, and the fridge and the Agar-Agar let the”eggs” get firm.

To make chickpea dough: 2 small cans chickpeas rinsed, nearly 8 pitted dates, 1/2 cup raisins and one banana, everything mixed in a food processor fitted with the s-blade.

I formed simple cookies( amount 1 heaped teaspoon each ) and the little rabbit (using raisins for the eyes) and put all in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 175 degrees Celsius. (350 F)

A bit of the dough I used raw, forming spheres and covered some with melted chocolate, then put them all in the fridge.
