So that same tofu I made curry out of was originally used for a chocolate pie. Probably the best chocolate pie I’ve ever had. Does part of it’s greatness come from the fact that it is actually healthy and has awesome nutritional stats? Absolutely.
I love serving people this pie, seeing that they love it, and then dropping the bomb that it has tofu in it. And then I just laugh and laugh and offer another slice.I dare you to make it, try it, and then not be in love with it.
1 package firm tofu (such as 12.3 oz Mori-Nu or Mori-Nu lite)
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp almond extract
2 tablespoons milk
scant 1/8 tsp salt
8 to 10 oz chocolate chips (a little over 1 and 1/3c or more)
2 tbs. Splenda
Melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave), then throw everything into a food processor and blend until super-smooth. (The food processor is SUPER important-you can’t just beat it with a blender. The blade is what makes the tofu creamy, not crumbly). Pour into a pie crust if desired. Fridge until chilled. This gets firmer and firmer, the longer it sits. I personally love it topped with strawberries.
