Sweetness

Cooking with what I have at home is really fun. Especially when it comes to desserts, because I like sweet stuff. And basically, you can make anything sweet. Which doesn't make it good, but it's worth to try and see. And here are two nice desserts, which you might just be able to do right now!

Chocolate and/or vanilla pudding

Who doesn't love a good pudding?

This recipe is basically taken from my corn starch package. I just switched the cows milk. But it's so damn simple. Eating it takes me back to those kindergarten afternoons, having this lovely chocolate pudding, sometimes warm, sometimes cold. Not everyday, but you know, you remember those times...

You just need to heat 5dl of liquid (1 can of coconut milk, rest in water) and 4-5 tbsp of corn starch in a pot that doesn't stick. Whatever that would be. Stir, stir, stir, until it starts to simmer, and let that happen for 2-3 minutes, still stirring. Remove from heat, add sweetener equal to 1 tbsp of sugar, and vanilla powder. If you want both chocolate and vanilla pudding, divide them into two bowls, and mix some cocoa to the other one.
And make it sweeter if you feel like it.

wannabe vegan Rice à la Malta

  1. Take out your yesterdays rice from the fridge (or cook some).
  2. Take your cashews out from the fridge, and when you notice you only have about 5 grams of them left, take out your sesame seeds and sunflower seeds. And maybe even your flaxseeds for better poop!
  3. Add them to the mixer, squeeze lots of lemon, sprinkle some salt, add some dates and quite a lot of water.
  4. Mix! And taste, and add what you need.
  5. Does it look something like that in my mixer?

Mix together with rice, and decorate with what you have. Or have brought to you. Believe it or not, while I was making this, my mother brought me a mango. So I sliced it up and added it on top. Like that. With some cinnamon.
I tasted it and I wanted more sweetness, so I added some more date to it. And sugar. And peanut butter, just because I had some. Until it wasn't rice à la malta anymore. Although it never was. But it was good!


And in conjunction with sweet stuff, I think pointing out the fact, which we all know to be true. Sugar is poison. That's why I like to bake with dried fruit or some stevia-sugar mixture, but it doesn't mean that it should be eaten every day, since, however it is sweet, it can become an addiction. And feeding to that addiction will make the cravings worse. But, once in a while, it can really make those certain moments quite special...
