(Non-fat, vegan) Créme Brulée 
Ingredients:

4 cups (1 liter) non-fat soy milk (280)
1/3 cup (65 grams) muscovado sugar (244)
5 tablespoons muscovado sugar (for topping, 225)
3 ½ tablespoons arrowroot flour (17)
1 ½ teaspoons agar agar flakes (0)
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract (18)
1 cinnamon stick (17)
Directions:
1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor or vitamix and mix, at medium-high speed, for 30 seconds, or until everything is well blended.
2. In a large pot over medium heat, pour the mixture and stir with a spoon, until it barely starts boiling. It might happen that some scum forms on the surface – you can skim it off easily with a metal spoon. As soon as the liquid is boiling, decrease the heat to low and continue to whisk vigourously for 10 to 12 minutes longer. The mixture should thicken up substancially and you’ll know it’s ready when, while stirring, the spoon leaves trail marks, showing off the bottom of the pot.
3. Divide the créme brulée among 5 ramekins, and let them cool at room temperature. Once cooled, refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 
4.  To make the “burnt” topping, add 1 tablespoon of sugar on top of each serving and, using a kitchen torch, caramelize the sugar, working in circular moves. Let it set for 5 minutes before serving. Bon appetit!
Each Créme Brulée will  have 160 calories, 0% fat, trans-fat and cholesterol.
