Step 01

For the rice pudding (no eggs)

  • To prepare the rice pudding recipe (with no eggs) start heating the milk, rice, sugar, and vanilla extract in a large saucepan set over a moderate heat, stirring frequently, until boiling.
  • Reduce the heat and continue to cook for 20 - 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  • Remove from the heat, cover, and chill.

Step 02

For the carrot mousse

  • Melt the unsalted butter in a saucepan set over a medium heat.
  • Add the carrots and 150 ml of water, stir well, and cover with a lid.
  • Cook over a reduced heat, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are very soft.
  • Sprinkle over the sugar and continue to cook until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Scrape the contents of the saucepan into a food processor. Add 50 ml of the cream and blend until smooth.
  • Pass the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl.
  • Whip the remaining cream in a separate bowl until softly peaked.
  • Fold the whipped cream through the carrot puree. Cover and chill.

Step 03

To serve

  • Melt the butter in a frying pan set over a moderate heat.
  • Add the sugar, stir, and leave to dissolve and caramelise.
  • Add the seeds and almonds to the pan, swirl to coat, and cook for 2 minutes over a reduced heat.
  • Remove from the heat and leave to cool and firm up.
  • Spoon half of the carrot mousse into the base of two serving jars.
  • Top with half of the rice pudding.
  • Repeat another layer of carrot mousse, adding the diced nectarine.
  • Spoon the remaining rice pudding on top followed by the caramelised seeds and nuts on top.
