Comfort food - pudding

Comfort pudding

I'm not feeling too good today.. Nauseous, tired, dizzy.. I even went home from work after just a couple of hours. So here I am, hanging on my couch, listening to podcasts, reading articles and watching some series. Someone recommended Prison Break to me and I seem to be hooked!
I didn't have lunch today (my breakfast felt like there was a brick in my stomach) but I figured I could at least have a simple dinner because my stomach was growling and I figured it might make me feel better.
I ended up making this comforting and warming pudding, and added some healthy spices. Tasted really good and didn't upset my stomach at all.

Comfort pudding (serves 1)
- 1 medium parsnip
- 1 medium turnip
- 1 medium carrot
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp creamed coconut
- 3 eggs

1. Boil some water in a steamer and in the mean time, wash the veggies and chop them into equal pieces.
2. Steam for approx. 10 minutes, until soft, and puree.
3. Stir in the spices, coconut and eggs and transfer the mixture to a saucepan.
4. Put over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, until the mixture has thickened. Stir regularly.
5. Serve hot and enjoy!
