Mehren Tzimmes – Honey Carrots

Like almost everything that has to do with Jewish traditions, there are two interpretations of the Carrot Tzimmes, baked or stewed sliced carrots with honey, dried fruit or raisins, and whatever spices your prefer. The Yiddish word for carrot is mehren, which is very close to the Yiddish word for moremehr.  The argument seems to focus on this word: more of what?  The older tradition, going back to medieval Germany, simply replaced fenugreek, a, vegetable unheard of in Europe, with carrots, pronouncing the same blessing: “May our merits increase.” In other words, we are requesting more opportunities to do more good deeds, so that our merits should increase. Doing good deeds is what will make the year sweet.

2 eggs
1 medium banana (mashed)
2 Tbspn ground almounds (almond meal)
few drops vanilla essence

Vegan Peanut Butter Cup Pie

Vegan no-bake Peanut Butter Cup Pie

1 1/2 cups almond meal
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons coconut oil
Pinch of salt

1 cup creamy all-natural peanut butter
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt*
Chocolate Topping:
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, at room temperature
3 tablespoons cocoa powder

Line an 8-inch springform pan or pie dish with parchment paper and set aside.
To prepare the crust, combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir well to create a uniform dough. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the lined pan and set aside.

To prepare the filling, combine the four ingredients in a blender, and blend until completely smooth and silky.
Pour the filling over the top of the crust, and use a spatula to smooth the top.
Place the pie in the freezer to set until firm, about 4 to 6 hours.
Once the pie is firm, prepare the chocolate topping.
Combine the coconut oil, maple syrup, and cocoa powder in a small bowl and whisk well to combine, creating a smooth chocolate sauce.
Use the parchment paper to easily remove the pie from the pan, then drizzle the chocolate over the top.
Allow the pie to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes to make it easier to slice and serve. Store any remaining pie in the refrigerator for up to one week.

3 eggs
2 cups gluten-free flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder

½ cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2-3 cups carrots, finely shredded (I used a little over 2 cups)

In a large bowl cream together oil, sugars, and eggs. Set aside.
In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk.
Mix just until fully combined. (careful not to over mix)
Fold in shredded & pureed carrots, coconut flakes and vanilla extract.
Pour batter evenly into prepared pans.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until center is set. (do not over bake!)
Place pans directly into freezer to cool.
While cakes are cooling prepare the frosting by first creaming together the butter and cream cheese.
Add in the confectioners sugar and vanilla extract.
Mix until silky and creamy. Add more sugar if a thicker texture is needed.
When cakes are cooled remove them from pans and frost, sprinkling the tops with walnuts.

Notes: This carrot cakes tastes even better the next day!
