Vegan Gelatin Dessert

This light dessert can be served with a sprig of mint on top or a dollop of whipped topping. Either way, it has a lovely flavor.

Serves 4.

Ingredients:

  • 4 c water (divided use)
  • 4 hibiscus tea bags (or 4 tsp loose hibiscus flower tea)
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint (or 2 peppermint tea bags)
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 Tbsp agar agar flakes (or 2 tsp agar agar powder)

Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring two cups of the water to a boil. Add hibiscus tea and mint sprigs or teabags.
  2. Remove from heat, cover, and steep 15 minutes. Strain the tea. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, agar agar, and the remaining two cups of water.
  4. Bring to a boil over medium heat; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  5. Combine the sugar syrup with the tea and blend well.
  6. Lightly oil an 8 x 8 inch pan, and pour the mixture in. Cover pan with foil and refrigerate 8 hours or more.
