Breakfast Pie

Back to a new recipe! I'm going to feature more of my recipes from Vive and TEV in upcoming months, but I still have some exciting new yummies to show you as well.

Like this Banana Pecan Rice Pudding Pie for Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. Here it is before going into the oven (looks good already, huh?).

Below, I'm spooning a luscious bite after the pudding is out of the oven and has cooled for about 20-30 minutes. This pudding pie is made with wholesome brown rice, but you'd hardly know it with how creamy and rich-tasting it is. Not overly sweet or rich to enjoy for breakfast, but just enough to make it more of a breakfast treat than your ordinary morning meal.



On to serving... How else, but drizzled with vanilla non-dairy milk... in these most elegant - very fancy shmancy Dora The Explorer and Sponge Bob bowls! Yeah, I could teach Martha a few things.

Wow…that looks like a great brekkie! I like rice pudding for breakfast every now and then so I definitely would love to try this!! I need to get myself some Dora and Sponge Bob bowls before the book comes out so that I can serve this in the proper manner! :)

Something about bananas must be going around the vegan blogsphere (I was just eying Susan's banana pudding over at FatFree Vegan). HHHHmmmm I guess I better jump on the bandwagon and make myself some decadent banana goodness. I can't wait to try this recipe out- I've never had rice pudding or any sweet rice dish before. Too bad I don't have any Dora-ware to eat it in.

I think this will be the only rice pudding I will ever like...

Looks amazing! Yum!!!

Ok, this is a hit! I can't wait to fill my "tigger and winnie the pooh" bowls with this yummy breakfast.

Urban Vegan said...

Oh Dreena. Now THAT'S worth waking up for. Being a hedonist, I can see myself drizzling it with agave nectar. I can't wait to get your new book.

Arine said...

Looks amazing!

Dreena said...

Thanks Scottishvegan - and yes, silly bowls are a must!

Teresa, I just checked out that pudding - wow, it looked terrific. Funny, I just picked up some of those alphabet cookies on Susan's blog for our girls this week too. You MUST try rice pudding some time. It can be a nice dessert - but sometimes too filling/heavy for dessert, but wonderful as a snack or breakfast!

Thanks bookmama & Johanna3. :)

Yeah Leslie! Nice to see your pic and see you around again!!! Thanks for that super comment on myspace too - glad you're lovin' the fudgy brownies. mmmmm brownies. with ice-cream. mmmmmm (do you normally not like rice pudding, btw?)

Veg-A-Nut... wait! We must get ourselves a Winnie bowl!! We often get these bowls and cups/spoons from grandparents. We'll have to drop a hint for Winnie, Tigger, or Piglet next time!

Urban Vegan, agave nectar is totally justified on this pudding... as is maple syrup... or a dollop of cream... or extra nuts. I can't wait for you to indulge too!

Thanks Arine. :)

That looks SO good that it's making me hungry. I'm not a breakfast eater, but I could certainly go for a Dora bowl full of that!

Oh yum...my mouth is watering.

My mom used to make honey-sweetened tofu pie for breakfast when I was little -- there's nothing like dessert first thing in the morning!

Vegan_Noodle said...

I'll be counting down the days till I can make this one....I'd probably eat it for dessert as well!

laura jesser said...

Oh yum! I love breakfast this way!

Judy said...

This might just be my most anticipated new dish. Hurry up with that cookbook, would ya?!?!?! :)

Dreena said...

Hey Susan! I guess we're in a banana frame of mine... you really must start using these elegant Dora serving dishes for your photos, though ;-) Though, I bet your food pics would look stunning even in these bowls!

Hi bbelf, wow, that's very cool that your mom made tofu pie for you! I'm guessing you're fairly young - or your mom was very enlightened... or both!

Vegan noodle, you've got only about 5/6 months to count down. :)

Thanks Laura and Judy (and Judy, I can pass that on to my publisher now - yay, off my shoulders - well kinda')!
