From:   Neal Barnard
4 large ripe pears- any kind

Cover and simmer until tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the pears from the pan and place in serving dishes. Boil the liquid, uncovered, until it is quite thick, about 5 minutes. Pout it over the pears. To make the butterscotch sauce, pour the soy milk into a blender. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until completely smooth. Top each pear half with a generous spoonful of sauce.
