SERVING

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla soymilk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup instant tapioca pearls
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, or to taste
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 15-oz. can pumpkin purée
  • 2 cups mixed dried fruits, including cranberries, raisins and apples
  • 1 cup toasted pecan halves, as garnish, optional

Preparation

  1. Put 1 1/2 cups soymilk and vanilla extract into saucepan, and stir in tapioca pearls. Stir remaining 1/2 cup soymilk with cornstarch, and, when well mixed, stir cornstarch mixture into tapioca mixture. Let sit 5 minutes.
  2. Heat soymilk mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until pudding begins to thicken, about 7 minutes. Whisk in sugar and salt, stirring to remove any lumps.
  3. Stir in pumpkin purée and dried fruit. Continue cooking and stirring 2 minutes more. Remove from heat, and spoon into heatproof serving bowl. Serve warm, or refrigerate.
  4. To serve, garnish with toasted pecans, if using.
