Instructions
Base
  1. Blend your hemp seed, walnuts and xylitol in a blender, not too thick but also not too fine. Then add the coconut oil and blend again to a soft mass.
  2. Press your mixture into a springform lined with baking paper. Make sure that your base is even and well pressed. Put in the freezer while you prepare the rest.
Main layer and decoration
  1. Rinse the millet and boil it, together with the coconut flakes, for about 20 minutes until it is soft and tender. In case your millet dries up too soon, add some coconut milk or water.
  2. When the millet is nice and soft, blend together with the xylitol to a smooth mass. Your mixture should be liquid enough to pour it into the spring form but not so liquid that it won't stiffen up in the fridge. Add some water or milk if it doesn't blend well or you think it might be too thick.
  3. Slice our kiwi and put the slices against the side of your springform like on the photo.
  4. Now pour your mixture into the springform, until the top or just under the top of the kiwi slices. Even it out, and then put more kiwi slices on top like on the picture.
  5. Put everything in the fridge (3-4 hours) or freezer (1,5-2 hours) to become nice and stiff.

Instructions
Base
  1. Grind the figs and almonds in a blender or mixer to a sticky mass. In case they are not sticky enough, add some figs.
  2. Save some of the "dough" for the hearts. Press the rest into a spring form lined with baking paper so that it forms a firm base. Put your spring form while you work on the rest.
White and black layers
  1. Bring the ingredients for the two layers to boil in two separate pots. Wash the millet before boiling. Personally I tend to add the xylitol and coconut sugar during the blender, but you can also choose to boil them with the other ingredients.
  2. Boil until the millet is soft and like porridge. Be careful that your millet isn't too dry and burns. In that case, add some milk or water.
  3. First blend one of the layers to a smooth mass. Taste to check if it needs any extra sweeteners or other ingredients. Your mixture should be liquid enough to pour it into the spring form but not so liquid that it won't stiffen up in the fridge. Keep the mixture of the first layer in a container that's easy to pour it out off later.
  4. After cleaning your blender, blend the other layer. The same advice goes for this layer.
  5. Now the magic. Pour some of the white mixture onto your base, more or less the amount to make it touch the edges of the cake form. Then pour some of the black mixture right in the middle of the white mixture, and let gravity do its work so that it floats a little towards the sides. Then pour some of the white mixture right in the middle, then black, until everything's finished or the spring form is full. I had enough to make two extra little cakes. Your cake is now ready. Put it in the fridge.
Hearts
  1. Juice or buy some beet juice and add this to the remaining almond/fig mixture. Also add some melted coconut oil which will help the now rather wet "dough" to stiffen up in the fridge.
  2. Mix everything and form hearts with your hands. Put them on saucers lined with baking paper to stiffen up in the fridge.
  3. Your cake should be hard and edible after about 2 hours in the fridge. Otherwise put in the freezer for a bit. Put the hearts on top of the cake before serving.

Instructions
  1. Peel the beetroots. Cook the millet. Rinse it well under running water before boiling (otherwise the millet will have a bitter taste). Boil in lightly salted water (2 1/2 cups of water for 1 cup of millet) on a low fire for 15 minutes, until the water is gone. Let it chill for a bit.
  2. Heat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  3. Grate the beetroot rather thickly. Chop the onion really finely. Chop the parsley and also the garlic very finely or shred it with a grater or garlic press. Roast the sunflower seeds on a dry frying pan.
  4. Put everything into a large bowl and mix well. It is advisable to use gloves or tools for mixing as beetroots tend to leave rather stubborn stains on your hands.
  5. Form burgers with your hands and transfer these onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper. You can sprinkle some extra sesame on top.
  6. Bake the burgers for around 30-40 minutes, heating both up and down. Then carefully flip them over onto the other side and grill them for another 5 to 10 minutes.
  7. Serve with grilled bread, vegetables, sauces or however you prefer.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup millet
  • 7 cups vegetable milk for example oat, soy, almond or coconut milk
  • 8-20 dates the number depends on the sweetness of your dates and how sweet you like it
  • 3-4 tbsp cocoa or use carob powder if you don't want cocoa
  • 1 dash salt
  • red fruit
  • almonds
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Put the millet, vegetable milk, salt, pitted dates and cocoa powder in a small pot.
  2. Heat on a low fire for about 25 minutes until the mixture is thickish. Stir frequently.
  3. Blend with a stick blender or normal blender until it's become a pudding. Not thick enough? Add some dates or cook for a while longer until thick. Too thick? Add some milk.
  4. Sprinkle with red fruit and almonds. For taste, I would advise to let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours, but it can also be eaten straight away!
