New Beginning

  • In this blog I will share my day to day cooking of vegetarian recipes, my insight in raising vegetarian children and my love for baking and pastries. Being from Venezuela, I will have many latin american approaches, and with my Spanish and Middle Eastern heritage I will add a twist on traditional vegetarian cooking. I will gladly receive and answer as good as I can requests for different recipes, but mostly I will have fun cooking along with you.

« Venezuelan Black Beans and Ground Veggie Meat: Pabellón Criollo | Main | Mushrooms Crostini »

December 02, 2005



"Spring pudding" was eaten in England (and probably elsewhere in Europe), to "cleanse the blood". Its main ingredient was wild greens, such as nettles, lesser celandine leaves and other young leaves. It was served as a Lenten dish 2 weeks before easter. Probably it helped prevent scurvy and was much needed medically (as vitamin C?) after a long winter of eating root vegetables. I don't know how it was turned into a "pudding" and would love a recipe if anyone can help.
