Carob Pudding or Pie
from Deanne - Alaska, USA

Recipe By : The Real Food Cookbook
Serving Size: 1

  • 1 cup cashews, raw
  • 1/3 cup carob powder
  • 3/4 cup honey or dried dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons corn starch (or 3/4 cup rice flour)
  • 4 cups water
Blend 1 cup cashews with one cup water for 2 or 3 minutes.
Add one more cup water and blend a few minutes more.

Add all the rest of the ingredients except the rest of the water, with the blender running. Blend until well mixed.

Pour the mixture into a large sauce pan.
Add two more cups of water.

Cook over mediup heat, stirring constantly, until pudding is thickened.

Pour into a prebaked pie shell or into serving dishes and refrigerate.
Serve chilled with tofu cream or cashew cream.

If you have a Vitamix, boil the four cups of water and blend until thick.
You will not have to cook the filling.

NOTES : I use maple syrup in the pudding.
I also have sometimes used cocoa powder for chocolate pudding.
