So, some of you are aware of my recent move to veganism, but not many of you have been able to keep up with how my cooking has changed as a result. This is just a taste of what I’ve been cooking lately, and it is my first real try at tofu as well. Please note that I got this recipe from http://www.vegweb.com
If the word “tofu” puts you off, please know that I’m not a huge tofu fan myself, but this dish is worth a try, and it’s super simple, and super-cheap.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 package soft silken tofu (be sure that it’s the soft silken tofu or your consistency will be off)
- 1 bag (10oz) of vegan-friendly semi-sweet chocolate chips (carob can work)
- 3tbsp maple syrup
- 1.5 cups your favorite berries or sliced fruit
First, using a double-boiler (I don’t have a double-boiler, so I use a small sauce pot inside of a wok) melt the entire bag of chocolate chips. Once the chips start melting, stir in the maple syrup.
Take the tofu, pour the excess liquid out and plop it into your blender. Blend the tofu until it has a smooth yogurt-like consistency. Then, pour in your chocolate chip mix and blend until well-mixed and smooth.
Cool the mousse, serve with berries or fruit. Serves between four to six. This is very rich and very filling.
This recipe is outstanding, I really enjoy it, and it’s just such a tasty treat that is good for you and is 100% cruelty free.
