Vegan lemon curd (english version)

by The Veggie Reporter

In the Netherlands lemon curd isn’t really a thing, at least I didn’t grow up eating it. So lemon curd is super British. They usually make it with butter, sugar and eggs. I thought, why not veganize it!

Veganizing this recipe turned out to be super easy. All you need is lemons, sugar, plant milk and corn flour, but I also added some turmeric for a brighter yellow color.

After heating up all the ingredients in a sauce pan, the amazing smell of a thick, lemon pudding that we may call lemon curd will full your kitchen. You can make it as sweet or sour as you want by adding more sugar or lemon juice. When you’re satisfied, the only thing left to do is wait for it to cool.

I like lemon curd with my oatmeal and pancakes, sometimes even on toast, but I even rather eat it straight out of the jar! It’s sweet, refreshing and man oh man, it tastes so good! I hope you like it as much as I do.
