You will notice there are no sweeteners in this wonderful noodle almond pudding: the choice of ingredients is so interesting that the dessert is naturally sweet: the noodle almond pudding is a real original, and a nice way to get kids to eat their veggies! Gluten-Free to boot! Almond noodle pudding is every bit dinner food as it is dessert or snack. Sweet potatoes are a real nutritional powerhouse too.
- 8 ounces noodles (gluten-free ok), broken in small pieces
- 1 can coconut milk (full fat)
- 6 cups milk, soy or other dairy-free milk
- 1 cup coarsely ground almonds or pistachios
- 1 cup golden raisins
- 1 large sweet potato, grated fine
- 2 tablespoons orange flower water
- Good pinch saffron
- 1 tablespoon ground cardamom
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- Good pinch salt
Heat a large skillet, and add the noodles, stirring, until golden brown. Add the remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to low, and cook covered about 30 minutes. The mixture will look lumpy: If the almond noodle pudding looks too thick, thin it with a little more milk. Serve the noodle almond pudding in individual glasses at room temperature.
