When she visited New York, she and I decided to collaborate! She showed me her delicious HALVA recipe (based off of her grandma's recipe!), and I showed her chocolate vegan cupcakes.

Here's the recipe to make Latvian Halva:

  • 2 cups of sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups of plain white flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp of sunflower oil
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  1. Fry your sunflower seeds until golden.
  2. Then fry your walnuts.
  3. Blend everything in a blender or food processor.
  4. Fry the flour for a bit until brown, mixing it constantly.
  5. Mix nuts together with the flour and blend again.
  6. Add water and sugar together, boil until sugar dissolves then add oil and mix.
  7. Mix everything together, add your choice of dried fruit and press down in a bowl.
  8. Place in a fridge until it sets for about 1 hour.
