Happy Friday! Sugar High Friday, that is. This month's SHF has a bit of a twist, Vegetable Surprise! All entries are a dessert that leverages vegetables in the ingredients. I was impressed with the creativity and some of the Indian desserts that were posted. What a great way to get that extra serving of vegetables in your day!
Anna from Life's Too Short For Mediocre Chocolate posted Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies! She describes the dish as "Soft, chocolatey, and a little spicy with a kick of cinnamon. Perfect for Fall's hot chocolate nights."
Rinku from Cooking in Westchester shares Beetroot Halwa. This halwa, a type of pudding, is prepared by simmering beets in milk, cardamom and sugar with a glossy finish of clarified butter.
Halwa was a popular approach for this month's theme. Ramki posted several different types of Halwa for other vegetables at her site, One Page Cookbooks. Recipes include Carrot, Bottle Gourd, Chayote, and fruit-based Halwa.
Sugar High Fridays, or SHF, was started by Jennifer at Domestic Goddess. Each host for a roundup chooses a theme and all of you post a dessert recipe for the theme. To get an idea of what Sugar High Friday is all about, look at these recent roundups:
June, Fruit and Nut
