T = Tofu Treat!!!

Tofu Treat!!!

I guess you’re thinking I’ve posted the wrong photo!!! 😛 🙂 No! Definitely not! 🙂 Accidentally the wrong type of tofu was bought (silken not firm) and so I had a little play! 🙂 From two main ingredients I managed to make a starter, main and dessert! Impressive hey! 😛 I was going to post all three today… a Tofu Trio but I decided I would keep the other two recipes for another day! This is clever! ( 😛 do I write that a lot!!!?) It’s chocolatey, creamy, satisfies the need for something sweet and looks great as well as tasting exquisite! Nobody will guess the two main ingredients and they will want this again and again! 🙂 I’m thinking this is tofu + mousse so it is called chocolate tofousse? yes? no?

Today sees letter

of the A-Z Challenge and up until late last night I ‘thought’ I knew what I was posting! As I flipped through my notebook looking for my latest ‘Truffle’ recipe to post, this jumped out and said “pick me, pick me” so I checked my photos (excuse them for not being clearer / more detailed etc) and decided ‘today’ would be their day! 😛 🙂

I’ve also decided that I will take this to Angie’s Fiesta Friday 🙂 and also to the Plant Based Potluck Party as everyone needs chocolate right? and healthy chocolate is a bonus! 🙂 🙂 🙂

So, apart from being packed with protein from the tofu, you also get omega 3’s and 6 from the avocado! Yes! Tofu, avocado and cacao! This SO works! 🙂 Of course there are antioxidants, minerals and vitamins too… in dessert!!! So lets cook! 🙂

Gather

  • 100g avocado (1 medium size)
  • 100g silken tofu drained
  • 30g agave
  • 15g cacao
  • 1/6 teaspoon nutmeg
  • cacao nibs (optional to serve)
  • fresh mint (optional to serve)
  • cacao (optional to serve)
  • pomegranate (optional to serve)

Prepare

  1. Put a knife into the avocado in a couple of places, then place whole in the oven to bake at Gas Mark 4 (350f / 180c) for 45 minutes. Remove and cut in half,

    twist and remove the stone. Scoop out the baked flesh.

  2. Process the avocado, tofu, agave, cacao and nutmeg until you have a smooth consistency! Tada! Simple! If your processor/blender cannot deal with the textures, mash with a fork until combined and smooth!
  3. Heap onto a plate and decorate with cacao nibs and fresh mint. Dust with cacao powder and serve with pomegranate.
  4. Enjoy!

Serve & Store

  • You could put this into individual pots and serve with biscuits 🙂
  • Serve as a dip with fresh strawberries, raspberries or grapes 🙂
  • Keep covered in the fridge for up to 5 days (ensure your tofu date has this much on it)

    Yum, what a delicious chocolate treat! I love how you presented it. Question: why bake avocado? 🙂

      Thank you Milica 🙂 I baked mine as it was very hard and wouldn’t ripen. I then discovered that baking it gave it an additional creaminess and a less avocado taste. I’m sure the recipe would work with raw avocado too but the taste and texture might be a bit different.

        OK, that mistery solved! 🙂 I love avocados, but they can really be stubborn sometimes. While waiting to ripen, they can sometimes go bad. Tricky little buggers! 🙂

            I think I’ve seen people on the Internet growing it inside of pots. Maybe it can be done… 🙂

            another thing to investigate / do! 🙂

    I agree – almost everyone needs chocolate. I woke up crabing for chocolate. This sounds like a perfect treat. Thanks for linking up to FF. Enjoy the party. xx

    Interesting that you baked the avocado, but this was a great recipe that you created when you accidentally bought the wrong tofu! Thanks for sharing with FF#65!
