Ingredients

For the biscuit layer

  • 30 g oats (use gluten-free oats if desired) (⅓ cup)
  • 30 g mixed almonds and walnuts (⅓ cup)
  • 15 g coconut palm sugar (1 ¼ tbsp)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 10 g milled (blended) linseed / flaxseed (2 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 20 g coconut oil, melted (2 tbsp)
  • 50 g raisins / sultanas (⅓ cup)

Alternative cream filling (slightly healthier option)

  • 400 g thick vegan yoghurt (Greek Style) (1 ¾ cups)
  • 20 g caster sugar or a small squeeze of agave (2 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp orange or lemon extract

Carrot layer

  • 3 Carrot Veggie Sheets
  • 150 ml boiling water (⅔ cup)
  • Olive oil, for frying (small amount or just a few sprays)

Instructions

  • Soak 2 veggie sheets in the boiling water and stir until dissolved. Refrigerate until set; it will set like jelly (about an hour). When ready to use, gently scrape with a fork to make little jelly crystals.
  • Make the biscuit layer by blending together the oats, almonds, walnuts, coconut palm sugar, salt, ginger and mixed spice. Transfer to a bowl, then add the melted coconut oil and mix well.
  • Spread the biscuit mixture on a baking sheet. Bake for 6 minutes at 180°C. Careful it doesn’t burn. Once cool, transfer to a bowl and mix in the raisins / sultanas.
  • Make the cream filling (choose which option you want) by mixing the coconut cream, vegan yoghurt, caster sugar and orange extract in a bowl. Or simply mix the Greek yoghurt with the sugar and extract for the healthier version.
  • Cut the final veggie sheet into quarters (4 squares), to make it easier to handle. Fry the pieces on a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan. Flipping over with tongs or fish slices.
  • Layer your parfait in a few clear glass tumblers or one bigger glass dish. The layers are as follows:
    👩🏽‍🍳Biscuit
    👩🏽‍🍳Veggie sheet (jelly style)
    👩🏽‍🍳Cream filling
  • To finish: sprinkle a little of the biscuit base on top, add a few lumps of jelly and add the fried veggie sheet in shards to decorate. (Best to add the fried veggie sheet just before serving so they don’t get soggy)
