This creamy treat was made in honor of World Autism Awareness Day. Many of these amazing children are on gluten- and dairy-free diets. The promoters of the awareness movement urged everyone to wear blue on April 2nd. Blueberries seemed like the obvious tribute.
I find myself salivating over many of Ree’s recipes, but since I am allergic to dairy, I don’t try most of them. I saw this one and thought I would try it, but make non-dairy adjustments.
The result was quite delightful. It had a custardy essence with a crunchy top. I used vanilla soy milk which added a subtle creme brulee-ness to the whole project. I had mine with non-dairy butter but my son had maple syrup.
Despite what you may be thinking, these “brownies” actually are really good, moist, and fudgy. I wouldn’t consider them a replacement for a good old regular brownie, but they are a healthy, tasty treat and free of most allergens.
This is my ‘go-to’ spread for any sandwiches, wraps, or pizzas, when a cheesy kick is needed. For cashews, only some brands are in fact raw (do to the processing), so it is important to be aware of which ones you are buying (if you are worried about the raw element). You can also use any creamy, white nut, such as a macadamia nut, or pine nuts for this spread. This spread is great as a dip or on sandwiches.
My husband’s grandma makes the best deviled eggs in the world, so this is her recipe slightly altered to be dairy free. My husband said they tasted just like his grandma’s! Wow!
Helpful hint: If you don’t have sweet pickle juice, heat 3 tablespoons dill pickle juice with 1 teaspoon sugar in a small saucepan until sugar is dissolved.
