Vegie Head!

Hello cult members,

Unfortunately since becoming an apprentice chef at Soul Mama in Melbourne I have found myself with less time to be able to cook at home and bring you new recipes, I still have a few in the pipeline but it just means I may be posting less frequently.

In the meantime I'm excited to start a new guest area on the site called Honorary Cult Members, you will see the tab at the top of the page. I hope to get some regular contributors to this area so its not just my recipes you are seeing but some other amazing recipes from amazingly talented cooks from all over the place that you may or may not have stumbled across otherwise.

Im proud to introduce to our first guest Adele, Creator of  http://www.vegiehead.com/ her creations are beyond words, especially her raw recipes they will blow your mind. We are lucky enough to have her recipe for her, Raw Chocolate-Coconut Cream Tart just looking at this recipe will make your mouth water.

So without further ado I introduce you to Adele and give you her Raw Chocolate-Coconut Cream Tart.

Adele is a self confessed “Vegie Head”. As the creator of www.vegiehead.com, you wouldn’t expect anything less.

Vegie Head started by accident – Adele started to post pictures of her plant-based recipes on-line, to the delight of many. The demand for more was so great that she started a blog (www.vegiehead1.tumblr.com) with pictures only. Then came the demand for recipes. The website was born, andwww.vegiehead.com was an overnight success. Still flourishing, the website and recipes have been featured on many food blogs and sites, featured in online magazines, published in two compilation cookbooks, and Vegie Head herself has 2 e-books coming out soon! She also teaches cooking classes at her home in Melbourne, Australia and has a YouTube channel.

Adele’s beliefs are that food should be healthy, delicious, colourful and easy. All recipes are plant-based; some raw, some cooked, and Adele welcomes everyone to her website and social media pages, as she is intent on spreading “The Vegie Head’s Love”!
