This Vegan Carrot Halva is based on a popular Indian dessert called gajar ka halwa. It resembles a sweet rice pudding or rice porridge. For this carrot porridge, grated carrots are cooked very slowly, until you get a mushy, porridge-like consistency. Carrot halva is traditionally made with milk, ghee and cream.

This Three Grain Cranberry Porridge is a real treat. It’s sweet and warming. Cooking the grains in apple juice gives them a beautiful sweet flavour, like apple compote.

If you don’t have much time on your hands, you can also ‘cook’ the grains and cranberries overnight by adding the grains to a bowl with the water and apple juice.Read More
