Easy Sweet Potato Savory Pudding

IMG_1561

Ack! It’s been another month! Forgive me ­čÖé

So I’m not entirely sure what you call an unsweetened baked pudding. it’s not really a souffle, a pudding, or a custard….it’s a little of everything. Regardless, it’s beyond easy and has a wonderful comforting texture.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cup Full Fat Coconut Milk
  • 1 Can Sweet Potato Puree
  • Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Clove, Ginger [Heavy on the Cinnamon, maybe a Tbsp or 2, and a tsp or a little less or everything else]whisk or stir all the ingredients together until well combined. Pour into custard cups or ramekins, and place in a larger baking pan. Fill half way with water (but don’t get water into the ramekins!) and bake at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!!

Note: I’ve also made these with added fillings, such as spinach and chicken, skipped the water bath, and baked like a creamy Quiche. Equally as awesome, and worth experimenting with!┬á

Every winter, I swear, I drive the boyfriend squash crazy. It’s hard to resist good ingredients, and┬áI don’t get tired of using something over and over again for a while┬áif I like it….he gets sick of “squash fest”. Acorn squash are wonderful not only as a nutritious carbohydrate, but they make great edible serving vessels too!┬á┬áIn the past I’ve filled them with gooey cheesy┬áquiche, but I’ll have to modify that for next time. You can have fun with it. Feel free to fill them with:

  • Soups
  • Stews
  • Stir Fry
  • Chili
  • Quiche

But of course you don’t have to limit yourself to only those things! If you make a quiche, cut the raw squash in half. cut a sliver of skin off on the bottom so it doesn’t┬ároll around. brush with olive oil and ginger and then fill with the quiche┬áingredients and cook the quiche┬áin the squash. Otherwise you can roast the squash separately and just use it like a bowl.
