This rich and creamy vegan treat goes together in minutes and melts in your mouth. Ingredient tips: Cooking with agar, a vegan jelling agent derived from red algae, creates an almost instant pudding that will wow your holiday guests—food restrictions or none. Yacon, a thick syrup made from the yacon root, is a lower-calorie sweetener that helps with digestion; I use it in recipes as a substitute for molasses. Serving tip: This pudding is great warmed, with a dollop of whipped cream if you’re not vegan.
- Place agar, cashews, and salt in a food processor and process to a fine powder. Add boiling water and process on high speed. Add pumpkin and yacon or agave and process again until smooth. Blend in cinnamon and cardamom.
- Pour pudding into six 1/2-cup ramekins or 1/2-cup mason jars. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
