It is summer here in Sweden. And for most Swedes strawberries are the symbols of the summer. I love them! So I want to share a beautiful strawberry pie with you. This is gluten free, vegan and you can make it nut free as well. I´m a little bit sensitive to nuts so I can´t eat so much I´ve noticed, but I have discovered a replacement for nuts: tiger nuts! Tiger nuts are actually not nuts they are from a root. They taste pretty much like nuts though.

In Sweden we have a tradition of eating a bun that is called Semla once a year. Actually we have a lot of food traditions, we love celebrating different kind of foods. In february we celebrate this "Semla". It is a bun with almond paste and whipped cream. I used to love these "semlor", but after I stopped eating gluten I also stopped eating these delicate buns. This year I tried a different version of this traditional bun in a raw way and made a chia-semla. It was delicious! Try it out and let me know if you like it!
