Irish Soda Bread

Gluten Free Vegan Irish Soda Bread

I adapted this delicious gluten free recipe from elanaspantry.com, one of my favorite websites.  Emily suggested substituting 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce for the two large eggs the recipe called for, and that worked perfectly to make the recipe vegan. It baked up yummy, and the addition of the raisins made this quick bread sweet; while the caraway seed made it savory. Ummm, such a wonderful combination! Betayavon! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2  3/4 cups blanched almond flour (not almond meal)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1  1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • pinch of caraway seeds, if desired
  • no stick spray

Rice Pudding-Comfort Food

Everyone has comfort foods. Mine are all carbohydrates: pizza, bread, oatmeal, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, rice pudding. Here is a vegan rice pudding that really is delicious, especially when you eat it warm. Feel free to use almond, flax, oat, cashew, or hemp milk if you prefer any of these to coconut milk. Start with the minimum amount of sweetener and add more if you want your rice pudding sweeter. Enjoy! Betayavon!

Rice Pudding, Ingredients

 

Ingredients

1 cup coconut or almond milk

1-3 T. Honey (could use brown sugar or date spread instead)

1 T. Maple Syrup

1 cup cooked cold rice-white or brown, up to you

1 t. vanilla extract

1/8 t. cinnamon, plus a sprinkling on top

1/4 cup fresh apple, peach, pear, plum, or mango cubes, raisins or craisins, optional                                                          Rice Pudding, creamyRice Pudding

Supplies

Sauce Pan spoon for stirring

measuring spoons and cups

Instructions

Combine cold rice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and half a cup of the milk of your choice in a sauce pan over medium heat, and stir to mix everything together. Add the honey and maple syrup, or use brown sugar as an alternate to the honey. If using brown sugar, your rice pudding will be a darker color, but still delicious. Slowly bring to a bubbling boil, and lower the light, stirring continuously as you add the other half cup of the milk. Keep stirring and simmer about 10 minutes. Taste and adjust cinnamon and sweetener you’re using. Add fresh mango, apple, peach, or plum pieces or the dried raisins or craisins. Turn off the light and let the mixture sit. This is when the final thickening will occur. This rice pudding is best served warm, preferably right after making, but if you will store in the fridge, please reheat before serving and sprinkle with cinnamon.
