Recipe by BecR2400
READY IN: 20mins




  • Combine the tofu, cream cheese, sugar and lemon zest in the bowl of a food processor. Process until creamy and perfectly smooth, then add the lemon juice and pulse to combine, scraping the bowl down several times.
  • Divide the mixture among six wide, shallow heat-proof dishes or bowls. Smooth the tops as flat as possible and chill for at least two hours.
  • To caramelize, use a brulee torch or preheat broiler until blazing hot. Sprinkle a thin layer of sugar evenly over the surface of the custard. Set the dishes on an upside-down baking dish so the surface are no more than one inch away from the heat. Watch carefully as the sugar melts and then caramelizes; it goes fast once it starts. If you're using a torch, move the torch back and forth until the sugar melts and browns. Let stand a moment, then serve.
  • Cook time does not include chill time.
