This recipe is from the Vegetarian Express cookbook. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like a delicious alternative to my other non-dairy pudding recipe (#58589)!
- 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (Generic brands are typically dairy-free, but Nestles and Hersheys are not, so read the labels!)
- 1 (10 ounce) package firm silken tofu (I prefer Mori Nu)
- 1 -2 tablespoon brown sugar or 1 -2 tablespoon honey or 1 -2 tablespoon brown rice syrup, to taste
- 1 dash nutmeg
- 1 banana, thinly sliced (optional)
- Melt the chocolate chips in a small saucepan or double boiler with a tablespoon of water over medium heat.
- Transfer the melted chocolate to the container of a food processor fitted with a steel blade.
- Add the tofu and process until smooth.
- Add the brown sugar, honey, or rice syrup to taste, and sprinkle in the nutmeg.
- Process again until velvety smooth.
- Stir in the sliced banana, if desired.
- Divide the pudding among 6 dessert cups and chill until needed.
- Note: If you are looking for a dairy-free pudding, beware!
- Some brands of semisweet chips contain milk products.
- Most generic or store brands are safe, but be sure to read the label!
Let me start by saying that I don't even like tofu - I made this recipe because Kree wanted someone to try it. And now let me say, oh my goodness, this was DELICIOUS!!!! The texture to me was somewhere between a pudding and a mousse - very rich, and very smooth. The package of tofu I had was a little bigger than 10 ounces, so I tossed in a few white chocolate chips to have a little extra chocolate. I used two tablespoons of brown sugar and substituted cinnamon for nutmeg, and this is some of the best stuff I've put in my mouth as far as desserts go. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks so much for sharing, Kree, and for making me more of a tofu fan!
after a night in the fridge it's great. think it could use an extra banana or maybe i just used too much chocolate (i estimated). make sure to leave lots of room for this ... it's very filling, of course it is tofu.
This was my first time using silken tofu and I wasn't sure if I'd like it. But I do! I think it has a slight nuttiness that I associate with tofu but this adds to the richness of the dessert. In agreement with Bunkie that it's somewhere between a pudding and a mousse. I processed the tofu first, then added the chocolate and as soon as they started to mix, they thickened up nicely. I chilled it in a large bowl and ate my first portion with some apple slices and digestive biscuits - yum!
