Raw Christmas Pudding

This recipe comes from a raw pot luck evening at Pogo Cafe. It has warm spices and zesty lemon/orange to give it a Chrismassy feel.

Raw Christmas Pudding

½ cup almonds
½ cup walnuts
1 cup figs
1½ cups mixture of sultanas and raisins
½ cup sunflower seeds
zest of about 1 lemon or orange
juice of lemon or orange as needed
cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg

1. Soak nuts overnight. Soak figs and sultanas etc. for an hour or two. Don’t soak the sunflower seeds.

2. Finely grind sunflower seeds in a food processor. Drain nuts and dried fruit, add to sunflower seeds and process again.

3. Stir or blend in lemon or orange zest, then flavour to taste with the spices. Add juice to taste and (if necessary) a little water if necessary to achieve desired consistency.

4. Put into a pudding bowl and refrigerate. When required, turn out onto a plate and garnish (the pudding in the photo is decorated with desiccated coconut and raspberry).

Note. Exchange the nuts for any you like, but don’t use peanuts.

      Hi Tiphaine,
      It is rich and filling, so I’d say it serves 8 comfortably. Hope you enjoy it!

        Many thanks for your quick reply! I’ll let you know for sure about its success with my 11-person family who’s rather used to French ‘bûches’ than puddings. It’s going to be an interesting experience! 😉
