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.
- 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)
- Melt chocolate in microwave, or in double boiler. I use the microwave, it's just easier.
- Place tofu in blender, and blend til smooth.
- Add chocolate, and extract. Pulse blender til mixed.
- Pour into pie crust and chill about an hour.
- *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.
