Virtual Vegan Pot Luck Dessert: Crème Brûlée

Deerly Beloved is so excited to be part of the Virtual Vegan Potluck 2013! Hopefully you will have just virtually enjoyed a wonderful dessert from the lovely The Vegan Kat and are ready to read about my delicious Crème Brûlée rich with vanilla and with a sugar topping waiting to be cracked with a spoon, this yummy dessert is just the thing to celebrate this wonderful potluck!


1 Tbsp of plain flour
2 Tbsp of margarine
3 Tbsp of golden sugar
1/4 Cup of Soya Milk
1 Tbsp of Vanilla bean paste
1/2 Tub of Vanilla Alpro Yoghurt
1/2 carton of Mori Nu Tofu

1/2 Cup of Sugar (depending on the size of your dish you may need more or less to make the burnt caramel topping)

In a food processor add the yoghurt, tofu, vanilla bean paste and sugar and combine until smooth. In a pan melt the margarine and add the flour mix to make a thick roux. Then add the soya milk to form a thick paste. Add the yoghurt mix slowly, mixing constantly until a thick custard is made. Cook on a medium heat for 2- 5 mins to cook out the flour and then pour into an oven and grill proof dish. Chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours until set. Then when ready to serve, sprinkle the custard liberally with the extra sugar and place under a hot grill until in turns a dark golden colour and is bubbling. You can use a blow torch if you have one! Then leave to set. The sugar will harden to give the iconic crack when hit with a spoon! Enjoy!
