These Matcha and Pecan Mini-Cakes came about because my friends Dominica, Marcin and Iain had decided we needed an adventure. This adventure would take us to Stonehenge for the Summer Solstice. I remember we munched on these as we delighted in our make shift picnic strewn across the grass as the sunset and a mug of tea in one hand and one of these cakes in another.

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.
