Coconut Mango Rice Pudding Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

On a recent trip to Thailand, I fell in love with the food, particularly the dessert. On almost every street corner stood a little shack with wheels selling hand-made coconut rice pudding with freshly sliced mangoes, crispy fried rice and maybe a cheeky dollop of coconut ice cream. I couldn’t get enough of this and… Continue reading Coconut Mango Rice Pudding Bowl (vegan | gluten-free)

Strawberries and Cream Nice Cream (vegan | gluten-free)

Chocolate polenta cake with oranges and cream caramel (gluten-free + vegan)

I really don’t think polenta gets enough credit. It’s like the Ringo Star of the grains, although maybe that’s a bad example. I can’t actually think of one that’s better than that one right now but if I do ill shoehorn it in. Polenta is basically a humble cornmeal mush that is put together to… Continue reading Chocolate polenta cake with oranges and cream caramel (gluten-free + vegan)
