Ingredients

  • ½ cup raw cashew pieces soaked or quick soak*
  • cups Silk Nog
  • 1 tablespoon coconut or brown sugar
  • tablespoons agar flakes ** not powder
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon rum

Caramel Topping

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ cup Silk Nog

Instructions

  • Place the soaked cashews in a food processor or high-speed blender. Pulse for a few seconds. Add the Silk Nog and pulse until smooth.
  • Add the brown sugar, agar flakes, nutritional yeast flakes, and ground nutmeg. Pulse for a second or two to combine.
  • Pour this into a medium-sized sauce pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat. Stir in the rum. Set aside for 5 - 10 minutes, to allow it to cool slightly.
  • In a separate sauce pan add the caramel topping ingredients. Bring to a boil and reduce to a rapid simmer. Cook until the sugar caramelizes and the sauce thickens, 5-7 minutes. Pour this evenly in bottom of two flan dishes.***
  • Pour equal amounts of the the slightly cooled flan mixture over the caramel.
  • Place in the fridge for at least one hour, preferably two.
  • To serve, use a butter knife to cut along the sides of the pan. Invert it over a serving dish. It may take a minute or so, but the flan will drop onto the plate. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg (freshly grated is a nice touch).

Notes

* Place raw cashew pieces in 1 cup water and soak overnight in the fridge. Quick soak: Place raw cashew pieces in 1 cup water in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer and cook until the cashews are tender, about 5 minutes. Drain excess water. ** I buy agar flakes at our local health food store. I usually find them in the Asian section. *** You can use muffin tins for this, mini pie pans, or even any small bowls that have a gently outward slope.
