The parsnips add natural sweetness to the cake and its combination with the vanilla cream is simply delicious.

  3. Attach the plastic dough blade in the processor bowl of your Ninja Compact Kitchen System, select dough and allow the ingredients to combine together.

  5. Pour the mashed parsnips and chopped walnuts over the cake dough and slowly combine the two mixtures together.

  6. Pour the dough into a greased bundt cake tin and place the cake in the oven and cook for 35-40 minutes.

  7. Remove from the oven and leave it to cool for approximately 15 minutes before removing it from the tin.

  8. Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack

    Drain the water from the cashew nuts and pour them into the blender cup, add the water, vanilla extract, agave and select blend in your Ninja Compact Kitchen System.

  10. Pour the vanilla cream over the cake and sprinkle with chopped walnuts – save the remainder of the vanilla cream and serve with the slices of cake.

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
