Savory Carrot & Leek Spelt Doughnut w/ Scallion Cashew Frosting


Baked Savory Doughnuts

Baked Carrot & Leek Curry Spelt Doughnut

w/ Scallion Cashew Frosting

These are a savory treat!

Once Channuka starts everything becomes either a latke or a doughnut & I love it!! I figure everyone is eating jelly doughnuts but to be honest I don't like jelly filling. I started to think about how Indian cuisine has a fried lentil doughnut called Medu Vada. My recipe might not contain lentils but here is my own healthy version of Medu Vada in the spirit of Channuka!!

Happy Holidays

*Makes 8 doughnuts



1 Cup Spelt Flour

1 ½ Cups Grated (save a little for garnishing)

2 Medium Leeks (white part only)

1 Bunch of Spinach

1 Tbsp Tapioca Starch

2 Flax Eggs (2 tbsp flax meal & 5 tbsp water - set side until it becomes a gooey consistence)

⅓ Oat Milk (or any milk of choice)

½ Lemon

½ Tbsp Sugar

1 Tbsp Vindaloo Curry Seasoning (from Frontier Co-op)

1 tsp Onion Power

1 tsp Chili Powder

½ tsp Baking Powder

½ tsp Baking Soda

½ tsp Sea Salt

Cashew Scallion Frosting

½ Cup Raw Cashews (after they are soaked they will be 1 cup)

2 Scallions (I left some of the green tops for garnishing)

¼ Cup water

1 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast

½ Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

½ Lemon

¼ tsp Garlic Powder

¼ Sea Salt



Preheat the oven to 375°

In a bowl grate the carrots. Try to squeeze out some of the liquid. Place aside.

Then cut leeks into thin slices. In a medium pan with some oil saute leeks & spinach. About 5 minutes. Add the saute mixture into the bowl with the carrots. Make the flax egg & place it in the bowl. When its a gooey consistence add flax to the carrots with ½ the oat milk & ½ lemon.

In a separate bowl add the dry ingredients & stir well. Make a little well and but in the other ingredients. Mix really well. The texture should be sticky.

Spray a doughnut try with oil & bake for 25 minutes. Let cool before adding frosting.


Soak the cashews overnight. If you didn't soak them overnight boil water & let them soak for 15 minutes. Then add all the ingredients into the blender. Blend till its creamy.

Place frosting on the doughnuts & garnish with carrot shreds & cut scallions. I also put a bit of lemon zest.

Hope you find these as tasty as I do!!

Serve & Share with Love
