T = Tofu Treat!!!

Tofu Treat!!!

I guess you’re thinking I’ve posted the wrong photo!!! πŸ˜› πŸ™‚ No! Definitely not! πŸ™‚ Accidentally the wrong type of tofu was bought (silken not firm) and so I hadΒ a little play! πŸ™‚ From two main ingredients I managed to make a starter,Β main and dessert! Impressive hey! πŸ˜› I was going to post all three today… a Tofu Trio but I decided I would keep the other two recipesΒ for another day! This is clever! ( πŸ˜› do I write that a lot!!!?) It’s chocolatey, creamy, satisfies the need for something sweet and looks great as well as tasting exquisite! Nobody will guess the two main ingredients and they will want this again and again! πŸ™‚ I’m thinkingΒ this is tofu + mousse so it is called chocolate tofousse? yes? no?

Today sees letter

of the A-Z Challenge and up until late last night I ‘thought’ I knew what I was posting! As I flipped through my notebook looking for my latest ‘Truffle’ recipe to post, this jumped out and said “pick me, pick me” so I checked my photos (excuse them for not being clearer / more detailed etc) and decided ‘today’ would be their day! πŸ˜› πŸ™‚

I’ve also decided that I will take this to Angie’s Fiesta Friday πŸ™‚ and also to the Plant Based Potluck Party as everyone needs chocolate right? and healthy chocolate is a bonus! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

So, apart from being packed with protein from the tofu, you also getΒ omega 3’s and 6Β from the avocado! Yes! Tofu, avocado and cacao! This SO works! πŸ™‚ Of course there are antioxidants, minerals and vitamins too… in dessert!!! So lets cook! πŸ™‚

Gather

  • 100g avocado (1 medium size)
  • 100g silken tofu drained
  • 30g agave
  • 15g cacao
  • 1/6 teaspoon nutmeg
  • cacao nibs (optional to serve)
  • fresh mint (optional to serve)
  • cacao (optional to serve)
  • pomegranate (optional to serve)

Prepare

  1. Put a knife into the avocado in a couple of places, then place whole in the oven to bake at Gas Mark 4 (350f / 180c) for 45 minutes. Remove and cut in half,

    twist and remove the stone. Scoop out the baked flesh.

  2. Process the avocado, tofu, agave, cacao and nutmeg until you have a smooth consistency! Tada! Simple! If your processor/blender cannot deal with the textures, mash with a fork until combined and smooth!
  3. Heap onto a plate and decorate with cacao nibs and fresh mint. Dust with cacao powder and serve with pomegranate.
  4. Enjoy!

Serve & Store

  • You could put this into individual pots and serve with biscuits πŸ™‚
  • Serve as a dip with fresh strawberries, raspberries or grapes πŸ™‚
  • Keep covered in the fridge for up to 5 days (ensure your tofu date has this much on it)
