Just for fun, I've been looking around for vegetarian celebrity food recipes. Certainly, most of the celebrity food recipes I found included meat, so that was no good. Many were for celebrities of little renown, and were is the fun in that, I ask you? And, many more food recipes (add one pound of shortening to a box of yellow cake mix ... ) were downright scary.
But all is not lost. Because, in the past few weeks I did find two interesting celebrity vegetarian food recipes, one from Moulin Rouge actress Nicole Kidman and the other from Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon. But today's vegetarian food recipe is from a character that holds a dearer place in my heart than either of these will ever have.
Food recipe: Peppermint Patty's Prune Whip
1 lb. package dried prunes
Water to cover
1/3 cup sugar
½ pint whipping cream
Sugar to taste
½ teaspoon vanilla
Soak prunes for at least an hour in the water.
Add 1/3 cup sugar, bring to a boil, and simmer (covered) for about an hour or until prunes are puffy and tender.
Cool. Cut each prune in quarters, removing seeds. Chill in refrigerator.
Beat cream until it begins to thicken, add ½ to 1 teaspoon sugar and the vanilla. Fold in chilled prunes.
