I love the combination of strawberries and spices so I had to make something with these flavors together. This would be good with cooked shortcake also but I have been in the mood to experiment with more raw foods so I did a raw version. We actually had this for breakfast but if you add some coconut whip cream it would make a yummy desert.
Raw moroccan strawberry shortcake
1 lb mashed strawberries (about 2 cups)
2 tablespoons soaked goji berries
4 soaked chopped figs
2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons cardamon
1 packet stevia
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup raw ground buckwheat groats
1 cup ground sunflower seeds
1/2 cup ground pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup ground pistachios
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1 mashed banana
1 mango mashed
juice of 1 orange
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
Mix the shortcake together and shape into cake size circles. Add more sunflower or pumpkin seed flour if too sticky. Pour the strawberry mixture over the cake and top with chopped pistachios and coconut whip cream.
