Yes, Happy National Indian Pudding Day!! Um... what?
So, yeah, I had to look this one up. I was hoping for some sort of creamy masala chai kind of concoction. But no. This is "Indian" like "Columbus-got-lost-and-didn't-know-about-two-entire-continents-and-thought-he'd-landed-in-India Indian." American Indian pudding. It's a New England holiday tradition. OK, sure.
In the Usual Way's vegan Indian pudding recipe. Bonus: it's also gluten free! I also think that this Epicurious recipe would veganize well.
This national day seems that it would do better in the fall. Like the day after Thanksgiving maybe, as a dessert after leftover sandwiches. But hey, it's fun to mix things up. Only, oy, can we think of a better name for it??
