Chai Spiced Rice Pudding (v)

I had some sweetened soya milk to finish off and seeing as I can’t stand the stuff on my cereal decided to make rice pudding cos I needed something comforting after a horrible day. This makes very sloppy rice pudding which I like, but if you prefer it more akin to Ambrosia then up the quantity of rice to 50g.

For 2-3 portions you need:
25g pudding rice
600ml sweetened soya milk
4-6 cardamon pods, crushed to allow the seeds to come out
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
2 tbsp vanilla sugar

Place everything in a pan and gently bring to the boil. Simmer for 15-20 mins till the rice is cooked. I like this most a room temperature but it’s equally good hot or cold.

Thai Style Tofu and Oat Burgers (v)

This pic provoked the highest number of likes on I have ever had lol! It’s a quick burger to make (assuming you have a food processor) and can be tweaked according to what flavours you fancy.

For 4 large burgers you need:
1 pack plain tofu
2 tbsp thai red curry paste
1 lemon grass stalk, outer layer removed and cut into rough chunks
3 cloves garlic
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 tbsp frozen kaffir lime leaves
1 inch piece of ginger, cut into rough chunks
1 cup (maybe more) of oats

To serve:
Burger buns
Iceberg lettuce
Fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Sliced red onion
Sweet chilli sauce or ketchup etc

Begin by placing all of the burger ingredients apart from the oats in a food processor. Blitz till smooth. Add enough oats to make the mixture form a sticky, wettish dough. Line a baking sheet with baking paper or magic liner and splat dollops of the mix onto the baking sheet. Bake in a hot oven for 15-20 mins till set and lightly browned.

Toast the buns and layer up with the lettuce, onion, coriander, tomato and whatever sauces you fancy. Top with a burger and attempt to eat…!
