Fivelements’ Raw Soup Full of Healing Veggies and Spices
Like a kitchen garden in a bowl, with a hint of warming spices
Go foraging in your garden or local farmer’s market to make this raw soup, with root veggies like carrots, ginger and turmeric bringing the goodness of the earth to your table. Bursting with vitamins, minerals and live enzymes, as well as taste, coconut and honey bring a delicious softness to the dish and the texture is silky smooth thanks to the avocados.
Barley, Porcini & Asparagus Risotto
Wholesome and earthy, this is a new take on a comforting mushroom risotto
This tasty dish uses pearl barley rather than rice to create the foundation of a ‘risotto’. Barley has long been renowned as a strengthening grain eaten by athletes in ancient Greek and Roman times. A rich source of magnesium, B vitamin Niacin, maltose and dietary fiber, eating barley helps balance insulin levels, protect against cardiovascular risk, lower cholesterol, maintain a healthy colon and fuel liver and muscle cells.
A Raw Soup of Garden Greens with a hint of citrus
Zinging with taste, this soup is an organic garden in a bowl
Harnessing the vitamins, minerals and live enzymes of freshly picked vegetables, adding layers with the citrus juices, miso and garlic, and softening the final flavour with coconut water and apple, delicious meets nutritious in this beautifully deep green soup.
Ideal as an energy-boosting lunch or a palate-awakening starter before your evening main, this easy-to-digest dish is a tonic for your body, mind and skin.

A beautifully moist and rich chocolate treat that’s full of goodness
I’ve used zucchini to make raw dips and zoodles. I’ve roasted them, baked them and eaten them raw. Because of their bland taste they are easy to mold into anything you want them to be, like these delicious brownies. Zucchini are particularly great for making cakes because their high water content makes it easy to achieve a moist cake. I also used Medicinal Flower Extracts because they are high quality extracts with such a range of flavors to choose from and xylitol from birch sap to reduce the sugar load.
Raw Chocolate Tarts
Makes 5 tarts
Deliciously chocolaty, these treats are full of nourishing goodness
These are not your average chocolate tarts. Packed with nutrients the chia seeds pack a calcium, protein and fiber punch, the avocados and bananas bring the potassium, plus the avos’ healthy fats, and the raw cacao powder is full of antioxidants. Scrunch through the irresistible flavors while knowing you’re doing your body, mind and soul plenty of good.
A layered dessert that can be beautifully presented in cocktail or dessert glasses. The dessert includes some preparation time, but goes faster when you will have the right equipment to work with. You need a good quality high-speed blender to get the right creamy texture. You can omit the mango and orange compote with other fruits like banana, papaya, pineapple, pears, berries etc. So feel free to change and substitute ingredients and add different spices in the recipe to come up with your own variation.
