Cakes Made of Salad Are the Ultimate Guilt-Free Treat
A new craze has just blossomed in Japan! Thanks to cafe owner and food stylist Mitsuki Moriyasu, vegetable cakes now exist. So, what is a vegetable cake exactly? Dubbed “Vegedeco Salads,” these guilt-free snacks are perfect alternatives to traditional baked goods.”
In an interview with CNN, Moriyasu breaks down what goes into these beauties.
These sinful sweets substitute cream “frosting” for that made out of tofu, a “sponge” base for one of soy powder, eggs and vegetable oil, while the rainbow hues that decorate the “icing” come from natural vegetable colorings such as red beetroot juice.
Although there’s a lot of vegetable action going on, the treats still look and taste somewhat sweet like a real cake would. For comparison, the average slice of chocolate cake WITHOUT frosting has 340 calories. A slice of salad cake? Only 193 calories. This just makes indulging in sweets so much easier!
Since debuting the salad cake, Moriyasu has created 50+ different designs and doesn’t plan on slowing down.
Eating beautiful color energize and makes you smile. That’s our wish.
