Apple-Carrot Passover Pudding Recipe

You can serve this pudding warm or cool with milk at breakfast time, or as a side dish with roasted meat or chicken.

Nonstick cooking spray (see note below)
1/4 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup canola oil (see note below)
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup slivered almonds, divided
1 large tart apple, peeled and shredded
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup chopped dried figs
1/2 cup diced dried apricots
1/2 cup matzo meal (see note below)
1/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Freshly grated nutmeg
3 extra-large egg whites

Instructions for the Apple-Carrot Passover Pudding recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius or Centigrade). Coat an 8-inch-square (or 20.32 centimeter-square) glass baking dish or quiche dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine egg substitute, oil, 1/2 cup almonds, apple, carrots, figs, apricots, matzo meal, 1 tablespoon sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Blend well.
  3. Beat the egg whites until foamy.
  4. Gradually add the remaining sugar, continuing to beat until the whites are stiff.
  5. Fold the beaten whites into the fruit mixture.
  6. Turn into the prepared dish and smooth the top.
  7. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup almonds.
  8. Bake for 40 minutes.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings.

Note: If you are unable to find a brand of cooking spray that is kosher for Passover, you can pour the oil of your choice into a spray bottle and use that instead.

Although canola oil is not kosher for Pesach/Passover, you can substitute cottonseed oil or peanut oil (note that peanut oil is healthier than cottonseed oil).
