Pumpkin or Winter Squash Pudding – Vegan MoFo

I tend to make a lot of puddings. Children love them. I love the simplicity and comfort. When made with quality ingredients and low sugar content they can be a really nice way to add some sweetness to the end of a meal or as an afternoon snack.

This pudding was made using red kuri squash and topped with toasted walnuts.

Healthy Desserts from sweetveg – Vegan MoFo

Some of you may already know that I have two blogs. Sweetveg is my macrobiotic and spiritual living blog. Littleveg, as you may have guessed, has a child and family focus.

I post recipes on both sites and often there is overlap. Children love a lot of the recipes over there, too. That’s one reason I have the recipe index that combines all recipes from both blogs. I don’t want you to miss any.IMG_20130729_142607

Today is a review of dessert recipes from sweetveg just because they are good and healthy and deserve a little attention. Continue reading

Apple and Walnut Pie – Vegan MoFo

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and the varieties of fruit grown here are my favorites. All sorts of berries, cherries, pears, peaches and plums. All I can say is yum! Cooked apples remind me of my childhood. We had several different apple trees in our back yard, including Gravenstein. My mom could make the kind of apple pie that everyone raved about.

This is not her pie. I just want to make that clear. But, I know she would still love it. In fact, I think I will make this one for our next family gathering. It’s perfectly sweetened with maple syrup and has a walnut crust. I like my apples soft but firm and a little crunch in the crust. That’s my idea of perfection.
