Orange & Passionfruit Pudding - only 5 ingredients!

From the Page

Even just for a minute... This vibrant orange pudding only contains 5 ingredients (actually technically only 4 because two of the ingredients come from the same oranges...) and is very easy to make (as long as you don't take your eye off it when it's cooking!) This recipe is part of Costa Rican Food month, which kicked off a couple of days ago with the very special Resbaladera (Rice and Barley Milk Drink). I had to post this recipe next because it was one of my absolute favourites! The reason it is part of Costa Rican food month, is because I have based this recipe on a Costa Rican dish - Atol de Naranja. An atole/atol is a Central/South American dish which is thickened with either cornstarch or hominy grits. It is often consumed as a hot drink, however I decided to make mine a cold dessert pudding instead. I've also added a tropical touch with the gorgeous fresh passion fruit on top which really took this simple dessert to a whole new level! So- with all the changes is it actually an authentic Costa Rican dish? Maybe a Costa Rican can tell me. What I can tell you is that this dessert is spectacular. Place the orange zest and 1/2 cup of the orange juice in a saucepan. Add the cornstarch and stir well until completely dissolved and with no lumps. Gradually stir in the remaining orange juice and the sugar. Place the saucepan over a medium to low heat and stir continuously while you slowly heat it through. As the pudding heats it will begin to thicken, stir continuously to prevent lumps forming. Heat until the pudding is thickened (this should take about 10 minutes, but may take less or more time depending on how hot your stove is). Once the pudding is thick transfer immediately into 8 individual serving bowls (or glasses).
