We saw how Green and healthy living has to do with the floor we walk on, the air we breathe, the home cleaning products we use and last but not least the organic food we eat.
This month we decided to share with our readers a healthy recipe courtesy of our friends at Vital Choice Seafood and Organics.
We hope you will enjoy it, so we can share more ways of leading a Green, healthy yet fun life with you.
Today’s recipe comes to us from Teri Tsang Barrett who is is the former Senior Food Editor of Every Day with Rachel Ray.
Tri-Berry Summer Pudding
- 6 cups* frozen organic blackberries, blueberries and raspberries
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoon fresh organic lemon juice
- Pinch sea salt
- About 16 slices white sandwich bread, trimmed of crust
- Crème fraîche or whipped cream, for serving
*Use two cups of each, or adjust the proportion to taste; it won’t affect the texture much.
In a medium pot, combine the berries, sugar, ½ cup water and the lemon juice; bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, over medium heat, 8 to 10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve set over a large bowl; let stand for about 10 minutes to drain any excess berry juice.
Meanwhile, line a 6-cup bowl with 3 overlapping sheets of plastic wrap, leaving a 6-inch overhang. Dip each bread slice into the berry juices to saturate and carefully line the bowl, overlapping slightly and cutting the bread to fit. Add the drained berries to the bowl, pressing to form an even layer. Carefully fold in the bread lining the bowl over the berry filling. Use the remaining bread slices to cover the berries completely, again overlapping slightly and cutting to fit. Fold in the plastic wrap and place a small plate just smaller in diameter than the bowl and weight with one 15-ounce cans.Transfer to the refrigerator and chill for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Remove the can and plate and carefully unwrap the pudding. Invert onto a platter and remove the bowl and plastic wrap. Serve with a dollop of crème fraîche.
San Francisco Green Living Examiner’s note: Yummy, tasty and berryciously good. We tried it with all organic products and used organic Palm sugar. Let us know how you like the pudding so we can share more organic recipes with you.
