Carrot Pudding

There is something about veganizing traditional recipes that gets me really stoked. And if the recipe turns out great…which happens rarely 🙁 , I immediately do a remake for the blog and have it published.

Carrot Pudding

This carrot pudding is a perfect example of it. It’s traditionally made by using ghee (clarified butter) and milk.

I couldn’t find any ghee-replacing ingredient so didn’t use anything in it’s place. As for the milk, I used a can of coconut milk.

It turned out sooo good! The caramelized carrots with soft and juicy raisins + nuts makes this pudding so delicious. And in case you’re wondering, nope it does not have a coconutty flavor. 🙂

You can serve it right away, or keep it in fridge and serve it chilled.
