Chocolate Elk Pie (Mousse Made With Silken Tofu)

Total Time

This is just awesome, and a great way to get some soy in your diet (kids love this too!). And it does not taste like tofu at all. I've listed a standard graham cracker crust, however I've also made it with a crust I made from crushed cholate wafers, butter and slivered almonds, if anyone wants instructions for that as well, just let me know!. By the way - cooking time is actually the time it takes to chill.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces silken tofu (please see note at bottom of instructions)
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 graham cracker crust (or what ever type crumb crust you prefer)
  • whipped cream, if desired (to garnish) (optional)

Directions

  1. Melt chocolate in microwave, or in double boiler. I use the microwave, it's just easier.
  2. Place tofu in blender, and blend til smooth.
  3. Add chocolate, and extract. Pulse blender til mixed.
  4. Pour into pie crust and chill about an hour.
  5. *Note: I couldn't remember the exact weight of the tofu package. You'll find silken tofu in the veggie section, next to where they have won ton wrappers - whatever size the silken package is, that's what I buy - and I've only ever seen one size. They have a lite version, but I've never tried that, but would probably work. Also, if you want a more intense chocolate flavor, just add a lil more chocolate.

i don't use vanilla, but we slice up a banana and put it on top of the crust before filling it. NO ONE KNOWS ITS TOFU! sometimes when i feel like cooking I bake the crust for 10 minutes to give it an extra crunch... To make it lighter, just whip it a little longer, until it looks like mousse -- :)

One of the most unique and simply wonderful dessert recipes I have tried. No one guesses that this type of Frence hSilk Pie is made from tofu and so easy.

we loved it! I may give it a lighter texture next time by folding in the whipped topping.
