Rhubarb pie and home made yoghurt pudding. The pie I made the other day but I didn't get around to making frozen yoghurt today and I felt like more than just pie. So I decided to make a panna cotta yoghurt dish instead.
Panna Cotta is supposed be gelled but I only have xanthan gum to thicken it, so it'll be pudding instead. I measured one cup of yoghurt and added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1/4 cup sugar (a bit less would have been better). To thicken it I added 3/4 tsp xanthan gum, which also gives it a slimy texture so I added 1/2 tsp pre-gelled corn starch to give a nice mouth feel. These two ingredients are the same ones used in Instant Puddings. I put a leaf of chocolate mint to garnish the pudding. It was a surprisingly good dessert.
Xanthan gum is available at most grocery stores. Pre-gelled corn starch I had to order on line. Basically it's corn starch flash cooked under pressure and instantly dried to a powder. It doesn't need to be cooked so it's great for a quick cold dessert.
