What makes its special is the pop of the pomegranates as you take a bite. The ground almonds add further texture to this dessert. It’s simple to put together and tastes scrumptious. I made this dessert for a friend of mine’s 50th birthday party.

Blanched almonds and pistachio nuts, I purchase from a nifty Asian outlet in Hayes.  It has an online presence too which can be found here – I love it because it is reasonably priced and tends to be good quality stuff which I use.

What to do next

Tag me on @ethiveganquantum on Instagram to show me what you’ve made and let me know you’re happy for me to share.

My recipes are featured in vegan speciality publications: Nourished, Vegan Life, Plant Based and Vegan, Food and Living.

Order my first self-published book, “Essence: The Beginner’s Guide to Veganism” part of the three-part Circle of Food series. My second book “Presence: The Ascending Vegan” – which explores how to maintain a vegan practice is out in 2027 – I have compiled all the chapters including recipes.

Going strong since 2013.
