Mmmm...mango pie

Yesterday's gastronomical creation was mango pie. It is a very simple pie to make as it doesn't require any cooking or baking.

Here are the ingredients (the original recipe came from an Indian colleague at work): 1/2 can (~15 oz.) of (sweetened) mango pulp, 1 packet of unflavored gelatin, ~4 oz. sour cream, ~4 oz. cream cheese (I used the fat free kind), sugar, 1 graham cracker pie crust.

Mix mango pulp, sour cream and cream cheese in a blender. Add sugar to taste. Dissolve gelatin in a little bit of hot water, blend into the rest of the mixture. Pour the mixture into the pie crust and refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until the gelatin is set.

I didn't actually measure any of the ingredients, but approximated their amounts, for example, by using roughly the half of an 8-oz. bar of cream cheese. The most difficult one to estimate was 4 oz. of sour cream out of a 16-oz. container. I probably should have used a measuring cup for that.

Afraid I wouldn't eat anything you made Aydin, it would almost certainly have SNAIL in it.

Darn! You revealed the secret ingredient.

Doesn't heating the water for the gelatin qualify as "cooking"?

AYDIN ÖRSTAN said...

If there is nothing in the water when you are heating it, then it's not cooking.

Ah, loophole!

I think all the vegetarians need to know that this gelatin displayed in this picture is not vegetarian its a regular gelatin which is made out of animal skin and bones....

There is no such thing as vegetarian gelatin. Gelatin is made from collagen and collagen exists only in animals.
