Vegan Sago Pudding

                                Erika's Baked Vegan Sago Pudding
I got this recipe from a lady at a vegetarian dinner and its very simple to make and you can use what milk you like and what fresh or dried fruit you wish to add. I bake it in the oven in a baking dish til its golden on top, some people only cook it in a saucepan. So do you what you prefer. It is very yummy and filling and save leftovers in the fridge and either eat cold the next day or heat it in a casserole dish and add a bit more milk and put a lid on your dish if you wish . You can buy sago in a health food store or a supermarket, it's very cheap. Until I made this I had never eaten sago pudding and I love it .

1/2 cup of sago
1 can coconut creme
2 cups of soy milk or your choice of milk 

your choice of sweetener.
*optional fruit (any dried,tinned or fresh fruit like peaches, pears, dates, bananas)

Put the sago, coconut creme, milk and vanilla and sweetener into a saucepan and heat , keep stirring as it can stick. When it has started to boil you can either keep stirring and cooking til its ready and the sago is cooked or pour it into a baking dish and add your fruit and bake this for 20-30mins in a moderate oven temperature.

VEGAN Tomato Omellete


 HI, this is a very yummy recipe you can whip up for lunch or dinner, I don't put in the chillies at all so that is optional or you can add red chilli powder. I have made this over the years many times, I got this from the Hare Krishna stand at a Health Expo where they were cooking it up for us to try and they gave out the recipe you see here. This is a Indian style omellete from Gujarat state in Western India and it is very tasty. I  don't add sugar however you can add stevia or any sweetener you like. The coriander really gives this dish its distinct flavour so I do suggest making it with fresh coriander leaves which you can buy from a grocer. Chick pea flour is also called Besan flour and this is to be found in a health food store or health food section of a supermarket . Also optional is onions chopped and or capsicum. I also have seen some recipes that use some rice flour and baking soda i.e. quarter teaspoon.

PREPARATION TIME: 10mins and Cooking time a few mins each omellette. Yield 10- 12 omelletes.
3/4 Cup ( 185 ml ) tomatoes peeled and finely chopped.
1 1/2 cups Besan flour (chickpea flour)
2 hot green chillies seeded and minced (optional)
1 small bunch fresh coriander leaves, chopped up finely
1 teaspoon (5ml) dry roasted sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups -375 ml cold water
Oil or ghee for griddle frying

1.Combine all the ingredients except the oil. Add water if too thick.
2. Heat a heavy non-stick frypan or griddle pan over moderate heat until very hot, then reduce heat and brush with oil. Place 2 tablespoons or more of the batter and spread thinly.
When the underside turns golden put a little oil around the edges and turn over. When both sides are golden brown remove from the pan, fold and serve hot.

Delicious Cookies

Ingredients; 125 gms butter/margarine,
1 cup rice bubbles, 
1 cup Cornflakes gluten free (or any flakes you like Natures Path make gluten free wheatfree sugar free cereal flakes), 
1 cup sugar-substitute or Stevia powder 
1tbsp apple or pear concentrate or your preference of syrup,
I cup gluten free plain flour, 
3/4 cup dessicated coconut,
2tbsp water.
1+1/2 tsp bicarb of soda

 These yum cookies -biscuits are very easy to make. You can add some vanilla too and I use Apple or Pear concentrate instead of golden syrup and stevia powder instead of sugar. You can use other cereal flakes also , the puffed brown rice is rice bubbles not the soft Abundant Earth type, but normal crunchy rice bubbles, search for your cheapest ones I get mine now at IGA in the health food section for $3-$4. So have fun with this and enjoy a sugar free wheat free cookie and vegan if you use dairy free margarine, you could use coconut oil which is healthier but not so nice in the cookies. I hope you can read the recipe if not leave a comment below. For info on ingredients check out the Info and Ingredients page where I have added pictures of what I am using .

Yummy and Delicious Banana Cake

To make this cake vegan, wheat  and sugar free, I substitute Pear concentrate and Stevia for sugar (you can use your sweetener), No Egg Orgran (egg substitute), gluten free self raising flour, soya milk instead of buttermilk or your choice.
this is the yummiest banana cake ever and everyone loves it whether they are into mainstream food or real healthy stuff. Any questions just comment below. See how your oven bakes this fast or slow as I found an hour was sufficient in my oven.
