Pumpkin Kanten

My oh my that is one orange dessert. Don't be scared. As orange as it is, this dish is a throw back to those crazy jellos of the 60's. Only this dish is vegan and perhaps a million and 3 times better. Although, you'll probably need an adventurous group to try this one.

Simply 4 ingredients make this one:
Carrot juice, 1 tablespoon organic pumpkin pie filling, apples and agar-agar.

What makes kanten irresistible is cashew cream. I think I could eat cashew cream on just about anything and it's so simple to make. Soak raw cashews (NOT ROASTED OR SALTED) in H20 for at the very least 2 hours (up to 2 days if you'd like). Vroom it in the food processor with some lemon juice, agave and flavorings of your choice until it is smooth and creamy. Give THAT one a try sometime for sure

I don't know why, but I have never made cashew cream. I need to do that!

that is such a cool dish!!! you had me fooled. it does look just like jello.

can you buy agar-agar at whole foods. i've seen it a lot in recipes, but they don't sell it at my normal grocery store.
