Not Recommended: Bob’s Red Mill Arrowroot Starch for Non-Dairy Pudding

Alien SnotAttention Hollywood Producers: If you are looking for a recipe where you require one of your actors to eat the contents of an alien, this is the one for you.

On the back of a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Arrowroot Starch, there is a recipe for pudding.  I was really looking forward to finding a way to have vanilla and chocolate pudding again. Needless to say, I’m thoroughly disappointed in this. And yes, it tastes as bad as it looks. Well, I probably shouldn’t say that. There are worse things, like chicken livers and limburger cheese. If you can get past the texture at all, the flavor is very “bitter chemical with a hint of sweet.”

It is *maybe* good (?) if you use real milk. I don’t know. But with rice milk? No. Perhaps it is intended for use for people with corn allergies. However, as both a cornstarch and dairy substitute, forget it. I followed the directions exactly and, other than maybe not cooking it longer to firm up the gloppy texture, I don’t know what else I could have done to improve this.

Alas, not every swing is a hit and we’re back to square one. All we can do is keep trying.

In the meantime, what more do I have to say about it? Not much. Take a look at the picture and decide for yourself which words you would like to use to describe this. We’ve certainly come up with plenty of descriptions on our own, for which I will spare you.

Hey, Halloween is coming up soon. Have fun!

    I am eating a non-dairy chocolate pudding right now that I just made from arrowroot starch. I recommend reading a bit more about using arrowroot, as it is used differently than other thickener, in different amounts. Mine is delicious, and I used a combo of two non-dairy milks. Cheers!
