Vegan Chocolate Pudding
Bakers brand of chocolate contains no animal products. But if you decide to try another brand, check to make sure it is all-vegan. If you prefer, garnish pudding with vegan whipped cream and sliced strawberries or other seasonal berries. What makes this pudding so special is its ultra-rich taste and dense, chocolatey flavor. You may want to serve brownies alongside.

- Heat remaining soymilk in separate saucepan over medium-low heat. Grad- ually mix in egg-and-cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly. When mixture has thickened and bubbles slightly, remove pan from heat. Stir in melted chocolate and margarine mixture until well combined.
