Desert: apple and Rhubarb mousse with pomegranate sauce and cool mint, apple and cucumber tea.

unnamed

When you are having to stick to a low histamine, mad hatter style diet to stay human, it’s very hard sometimes to find a desert that you can tolerate and enjoy at the same time. Usually i’m either screaming with happiness at the same time as my face is expanding by the second, or my round head behaves, but then i’m having to rush to the toilet to banish the ghastly taste of bitter crushed oyster, carob and beetle taste taking over my tastebuds.

The recipe I have created is low histamine, dairy free, grain free, nightshade free, nut free, soya free mousse, with a little added maple syrup, that you don’t have to add if you cannot tolerate it. The desert came out really tasty and banished my sugar cravings, for now anyway. If any mousse is left, you can always freeze it for another day, so that the histamine doesn’t rise.

 Ingredients – Mousse

  • Half sweet potato peeled and chopped
  • 2 apples peeled and chopped
  • 2 inch chunk of melon chopped
  • 3 stalks of rhubarb peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (if tolerated)
  • 2  large tablespoons of coconut oil (odourless)
  •  pinch of rock salt

Method 

In a pan put the sweet potato, melon, rhubarb, apple, coconut oil, salt, maple syrup and then add a little water and after bubbling, turn the heat down and let it gently simmer until soft, takes about 30 minutes. Then remove from the heat, let it sit for a few minutes, then place in a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and let cool, before putting it in the freezer for an hour to stiffen up and also stop the histamine from rising.

 

Ingredients – Pomegranate sauce

  • large handful of pomegranate seeds
  • small chunk sweet potato finely diced
  • small chunk of rhubarb finely chopped
  • small chunk of melon finely chopped
  • rock salt
  • teaspoon of coconut oil (odourless)

Method

Add all the ingredients to a pan with a little water and let it gently simmer until everything reduces, blends and thickens, takes about 25 mins, then serve it with the mousse and a fresh mint tea. I cooled fresh mint leaved tea in the fridge and then added chopped apple and cucumber to it.
