With St. Patrick’s Day on the horizon, I have been thinking about green desserts. This pudding recipe has the benefit of complimenting the upcoming St. Paddy’s Day and being made from pistchios which are pretty amazing!
In a food processor, pulse into a paste:
- 1/2 cup salted pistachios
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp water
In a saucepan, combine with a whisk:
- 2 and 1/2 cups milk
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 sugar
- A drop or two of green food colouring
Add in the pistachio paste and heat until boiling on medium heat, whisking constantly. After the pudding comes to a boil, boil for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add in:
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp butter
Cool for 5 minutes, stirring a couple of times before dividing among serving dishes. Makes 4-5 servings. Cool.
