Tofu + chocolate? Must be unResolution Month’s Vegan Week and
Vegan Tofu Chocolate Pie
Yes, that’s right tofu chocolate pie. Seriously.
Oh, real quick. Welcome to the second-to-last day of unResolution Month! It’s been an educational, enriching, delicious, resolution-breaking month! I hope you’ve enjoyed the recipes as much as I have! Plus, don’t worry, we’ll do it next year, too!
Anyway, back to tofu chocolate pie. This whole concept may sound weird. I know when I was first vegan, the whole concept of blending chocolate and tofu sounded about as sane as mixing chocolate and Velvetta. Then I had chocolate soy milk, which is mixing soy + chocolate and that’s really good. I highly recommend it.
So if a little chocolate mixed in with some soy milk is worth a try, I guarantee this pie filled with delicious chocolate, margarine, and sugar is really, really worth it. Oh, and tomorrow, I promise I’ll give you that vegan ice cream recipe so you can have vegan pie a la mode!
Vegan Tofu Chocolate Pie Recipe
So as usual, being the non-baker that I am, I went out and got a recipe for tofu chocolate pie. In this case, I got it from chooseVeg.com, which if you’re going vegetarian/vegan is a great resource. I pretty much did the recipe as is and it came out perfect. Just be careful when you are making it that you get vegan margarine, vegan graham crackers, etc.
You will need:
For the crust
- 2 oz. (about 1/4 cup) margarine, melted
- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
For the filling:
- 1 1/4 lb. tofu (2 1/2 cubes)
- 1 cup rice syrup (or maple syrup)
- 2/3 stick margarine
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
Get the ingredients on chooseVeg.com‘s site and enjoy!
