This is probably the recipe I’ve been asked for most, so here it is: my blueberry pie. Don’t worry, it’s the easiest pie I make and still: everybody is amazed when they eat it.
The secret is AgarAgar. What? AgarAgar! If you have never heard of it; AgarAgar is a gelatinous substance; derived from a special type of Southeast Asian seaweed, rather than from animal collagen. That’s the reason vegetarians use it.
To make the pie you need:
-dates (the fresher the better. I like Medjool)
-nuts (of your choice. I like walnuts of almonds)
-blueberries (I just take the frozen ones)
-AgarAgar (there it is)
-chocolate bar (optional as an extra layer; take as pure as you can)
Crunch the nuts, remove the pits from the fruit and mix the nuts and dates. Kneed into a little ball.
Take a small oven dish and cover the bottom and sides with some baking paper. Flatten the nuts/dates ball on the bottom. A layer of half a centimeter is perfect.
Put the blueberries in a saucepan (you can make a full raw-version if you want, I’ll tell you in a second), just put a little bit of water on the bottom and bring to boil. As soon as it boils add the AgarAgar and stir. Let it cook for a minute. Add some honey if you’re a real sweet tooth and pour the mixture on top of the nuts/dates bottom. Let it cool off for a few minutes and put it in the fridge for about two hours. The only thing you have to do now, is eat it.
If you want to make a raw version put the blueberries in a blender. Bring just a little bit of water to boil, add the AgarAgar and let it cook for a minute or so. Add the AgarAgar to the blueberries and blend for about two minutes, so the AgarAgar is thoroughly mixed with the blueberries. Poor the mixture on top of the nuts/dates bottom. Let it cool off a few minutes and put in the fridge for two hours. Enjoy.
If you want an extra layer between the dates and blueberries you can melt the chocolate bar before you make the blueberry mix and pour the melted chocolate on top of the dates/nuts mixture. Than you prepare the blueberry mixture and poor that on top of the chocolate layer.
