Pearly Greats

As part of my new Vegan lifestyle I must have dessert!  I checked out Tal Ronnen's new cookbook, The Conscious Cook and in it found the perfect candidate for my first vegan treat.  I decided to try the Tropical Tapioca Pudding.  Instead of cow's milk and granulated sugar, this yummy recipe calls for coconut milk and agave nectar. You can only have a tiny bit if you don't want to feel guilty, but fleshed out with juicy, ripe mango, it is perfection!  I'm not normally a coconut fan.  While the coconut flavor is there, it is subtle and exotically delicious.  I can't wait to try out Tal Ronnen's recipes that involve Gardein (meatless chicken).  I'll share more about that later.  This cookbook does have some fussy ingredients, but if you enjoy a challenge (as most certainly I always do), it's a terrific place to find inspiration.
