Roast spiced plums with soya cream

Here is a recipe for a dessert that is delicious, healthy and ideal for vegetarians and vegans. Roast spiced plums with soya cream... Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!


Ingredients (serves 4 people):
  • 10 plums, halved and stoned
  • 2cm cube of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 200g soft, dark brown sugar
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks, or 1 large stick broken in half
  • 2 star anise
  • Juice of 1 lime

Instructions:
  • Preheat the oven to 190C/gas mark 5.
  • Put the plums in a bowl with the ginger, sugar and lime juice.
  • Mix together to coat the plums, then place cut-side up in an ovenproof dish where the plums can lie in a single layer.
  • Arrange cinnamon and star anise in dish, around the plums.
  • Pour 75ml cold water around the fruit and bake for 30-40 minutes (cooking time depends on how ripe the fruit is. The harder the plums, the longer you will need to cook them for).
  • Toward the end of cooking, spoon syrup mix over the plums to baste them.
  • Remove from oven, allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Spoon into wine glasses and serve warm or at room temperature (or cold, if you like), with a dollop of soya cream (or vegan ice cream) and plenty of juices from the pan.
  • You can also finish the cream garnished plums with a handful of toasted almond flakes and a pinch of freshly ground cinnamon.
