As part of my new Vegan lifestyle I must have dessert! I checked out Tal Ronnen's new cookbook, The Conscious Cook and in it found the perfect candidate for my first vegan treat. I decided to try the Tropical Tapioca Pudding. Instead of cow's milk and granulated sugar, this yummy recipe calls for coconut milk and agave nectar. You can only have a tiny bit if you don't want to feel guilty, but fleshed out with juicy, ripe mango, it is perfection! I'm not normally a coconut fan. While the coconut flavor is there, it is subtle and exotically delicious. I can't wait to try out Tal Ronnen's recipes that involve Gardein (meatless chicken). I'll share more about that later. This cookbook does have some fussy ingredients, but if you enjoy a challenge (as most certainly I always do), it's a terrific place to find inspiration.
