This vegan créme brûlée is everything you want in a decadent and creamy dessert. Not only is it sweet and delicious, but it’s surprisingly easy to make. MUCH easier than the traditional recipe, and this one uses 7 ingredients!
Making vegan créme brûlée isn’t only easy to make, but it is the perfect dessert to make in advance, and it is much more affordable. What do I mean? You can make the custard a day or two ahead, and then torch the sugar right before serving! And it’s so worth it to make it at home rather than buying it at a restaurant. You get more servings than you would normally get, and you save more money! Who doesn’t want that?
Step 1: To prepare the custard, blend the soy milk, full-fat coconut milk, silken tofu, vegan condensed milk, vanilla bean paste, salt and cornstarch until completely smooth.
Step 2: Transfer the mixture to a saucepan, continuously stir the mixture until it starts to thicken. Then remove from the heat.
Step 3: Evenly distribute the custard into the ramekins and place a piece of plastic wrap over the surface and allow it to cool at room temperature. Then transfer to the fridge to set, about 4 hours or overnight.
Step 4: When ready to serve, remove the plastic wrap and add a heaping teaspoon of sugar over the custard. Evenly spread it out and with a small kitchen torch, carefully caramelize the sugar until you get a nice dark amber color. Let the sugar hard and cool before serving.
Make ahead! If you can’t make this all in one day, you can make the custard a day ahead and keep it in the fridge until you are ready. Just add the sugar and torch before serving! You can even impress your friends and family by torching it in front of them.
