Raw Valentine Starter


A refined dish with a touch of beauty, always adds that “special something” when you are eating with a loved one. Check out this simple starter with glorious sex appeal!


  • A sharp knife
  • A heart mould to make the shape of a heart
  • A blender


  • A handful of sprouts (I used spicy tasting radish sprouts)
  • 4 very thin slices of red beet
  • A few drops of organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil


  • 1 C of macademia nuts or peeled almonds
  • A small piece of shallot (start with a little bit, you can always add)
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt or Himalayan salt (to taste – all nuts taste different)
  • If you don’t mind garlic… 1/2 clove of squeezed garlic (take the heart out for less odor)
  • A few TBSP of spring water, just enough to make a smooth texture (not running!)


  • Place some sprouts in the middle of each plate
  • Push 4 hearts out of the thin slices of red beet on a hard surface
  • Place one heart slice in the middle of the sprouts
  • Blend the ingredients of the “cheese” into a solid, smooth paste
  • Taste and adjust to your own taste
  • Put some of the cheese on top of the hearts
  • Close the hearts with a second slice of “heart beet”
  • Now put a few drops of olive oil on the heart to make it “glow”
  • Finish with a flower or red rose on the plate
  • Eat with Love!


  • You can use your own filling, a leftover of a dressing, a pesto…
  • Fermented cheese is lovely as a filling, too if you have some
  • A nut or seed paté works fine too
  • You can use the shape you took the heart from, make it round and fill it up with a white heart…
Raw Love is only one Heart Beet away…
