Simple Tzimmes

What you need: 

1/2 cup raisins or sultanas
1 cup hot tea
1 cup carrots, grated
1 cup apples, grated
1 cup sweet potato, grated
1/2 cup crushed pineapple, reserve 1/4 cup juice
1/2 cup brown sugar (I use panela)
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup crushed cornflakes, optional

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a mold or casserole dish. Place sultanas in hot tea to plump up, allow to stand while you grate the veggies. Drain.
2. Combine all the ingredients, except cornflakes, and place in prepared dish. Don't forget to add the reserved pineapple juice. If you dumped it all out, you can sub with orange or lemon juice.
3. Top mixture with crushed cornflakes. Cover mold with foil and bake for 1 hour.
Source of recipe: Tzimmis means "to make much ado about nothing." Well there's not much to do to make this delicious dish! This is my simplified, veganised version of a traditional Jewish recipe. You can add prunes and dried apricots if you have them.
