Golden Spiced Semolina Pudding


This pudding is filled with Eastern flavours of orange, cinnamon, and ginger. It’s creamy with a hint of grit from the semolina, and mildly sweet without being sickly.


Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. I love how it makes these cups look like little pots of gold!


This recipe can be egg-free and nut-free.
