QuirkyCooking Egg Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free Custard
« on: August 10, 2009, 01:48:41 pm »
About the eggless custard - I've done it at two demos so far.  I make a dairy free, eggless custard, by grinding the rice (80g) then almonds or hazelnuts (50g), then add 500g water, 40g cocoa (or 1 tsp vanilla if you want vanilla), 100g Rapadura or raw sugar or 70g honey, and a blob of coconut oil (opt.), then cook as usual.  Then pulverise again on speed 9 for 30 secs.  (I think those measurements are right - must write them down!) If you want a dairy custard, just add more flour I think.

80g rice
50g almonds or hazelnuts
500g water
40g cocoa or 1 tsp vanilla
100g Rapadura or raw sugar or 70g honey
blob of coconut oil (opt)
Corn Flour (opt)

Grind rice on speed 8 for one minute, add nuts and grind again for 20 seconds.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and cook for 6-7 minutes at 90C on speed 4. At the end pulverise again for 30 seconds on speed 9.

I realized 40g cocoa was too much for most people - if you use a good quality cocoa, 20g is enough.  I also often use 600g water - it's quite thick otherwise - and no cornflour.

So it's:
80g brown rice (grind 1 min sp 9)
50g raw almonds or hazelnuts (grind 30 secs sp 9)

Then add the rest & cook 7 mins, 90 degrees, sp 4:
600g water
100g Rapadura or 60g honey or 80g raw sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tblspn coconut oil (opt)

Then pulverise for 20 - 30 secs sp 9.

Thanks ILB & Jo - this would be great for consultants to have in their bag of tricks for those tricky situations.

I think you could make an arrowroot or cornflour custard with cocoa - thank goodness I have no allergies/intolerances.

I did make one at a demo that was dairy, nut and egg free and naturally sweetened - used the regular recipe, but I used egg replacer instead of eggs, extra cornflour (it was a bit thin), and regular rice milk (no almonds) and honey/Rapadura. I wouldn't usually use egg replacer, but this family did so I used theirs.  I have made custard without eggs or replacer - it's just a bit thin, almost a sauce.  Okay on cake, though.

We used to get rice flour or arrowroot "custard" when we were children if we had an "upset" tummy - it certainly did get thick if mum put in too much arrowroot or rice flour - so you may need to experiment brazen - and may need some extra honey or vanilla to give more flavour?

That's true - the problem with arrowroot is it goes very 'gluey' if you use too much, and some people don't like the flavour.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Sounds like concentration camp type food - must say Mum never tried to feed me with stuff like that.  She always made me a cooked breakfast.

I think faffa's "porridge" was not for breakfast - but like mine - instead of anti-diarrhoea mix !!!

Sorry ILB and Jo - gotten off healthy food to gastroenterological problems .

That's OK. It's a bit of an education for those of us that arrived post medication being invented  ;)

Just kidding  :D :D :D

But that is interesting - never heard of that before. Did it work?  ???

Don't know about porridge, but when we were sick with "D" mum used to say that rice was "binding".... ;)

LOL - yes, it worked when combined with leeches for blood letting and a soothing draft and lots of chanting !!!  ;)

I think that it was just to give the gut a rest and it felt like it was going to bind you up as you swallowed it!!
