I was playing around in the kitchen one day, trying my hand at making homemade soy yogurt. I followed this recipe, using light vanilla soy milk, and came up with a very tasty batch of vanilla soy yogurt.
I enjoyed the yogurt as is, but decided to keep going with the process and turned the soy yogurt into a vanilla soy 'soft cheese/Greek yogurt', following this recipe. Waiting for the liquid to drain out of the soy yogurt was the hardest part of making the 'soft cheese/Greek yogurt'.
Now that I had a thick and creamy 'soft cheese/Greek yogurt', I decided to continue playing around with it. I mixed up a small box of vanilla instant pudding with about 1/2 cup soy milk and combined it with the vanilla soy 'soft cheese/Greek yogurt'. I put the mixture in ramekins and let it setup in the fridge until firm; sprinkled it with brown sugar & broiled it in the oven until the brown sugar melted/caramelized.
To me, the resulting dessert tasted like a cross between creme brulee and flan. So, I'm dubbing it my ~ Vanilla Soy Creme Brulee/Flan. I enjoy tinkering around with different recipes, combining them and seeing what you come up with ~ and when you're playing around with desserts, it's always good.
