Megans Cookin: Chocolate Silk (Tofu) Pie!

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

Chocolate Silk (Tofu) Pie!


Trying to keep with the healthy theme I have going on in my life, I bring to you this amazing chocolate pie. Please, PLEASE, don't let the tofu scare you. You wont even taste it. Just silky smooth chocolate that wont make you fall off the wagon. That is...if your on a wagon! A little piece of heaven it is. Pure bliss, I assure you!



The Blond Duck is having Pie Week over at the pond and I'm submitting this pie to her. A decadent silky smooth chocolate pie that wont bust a gut. Inless you eat the whole the pie. Well then, my little buddy..., your on your own!


Moo-Less Chocolate Pie
Recipe courtesy of Alton Brown


2 cups chocolate chips,
1/3 cup coffee liqueur

1 block silken tofu

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon honey

1 prepared chocolate wafer crust
Place a small metal bowl over a saucepan with simmering water. Melt the chocolate and coffee liqueur in the bowl. Stir in vanilla.
Combine the tofu, chocolate mixture, and honey in the blender jar. Liquefy until smooth.
Pour the filling into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until the filling is set.

OMG what a great idea. I hide tofu in lots of things so I'm sure this would be no different!

Megan, you struck my chocoloate nerve. I've never had tofu, but I'm willing to bet that it would taste great with a healthy dose of chocolate. Nice looking pie!

The tofu did scare me a bit, but I really do need to get more adventurous and definitely need to start eating better.

I made this today and have it in the fridge as we speak. I literally licked the bowl clean!! I poured it all into my food processor and it did the trick. We are having dinner with some other couples tonight and I am not going to tell them what is in it until after they have eaten it! Is that mean? I really think not. :)

Neat, I've always meant to do something like this with tofu! Maybe I'll do it sans crust, the filling is always the best part.

This looks heavenly - I have made a chocolate cake with tofu before, and I adore chocolate pie, so this sounds like a winner to me!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving a nice comment! I think I get way too excited when people comment on my stuff. So I've only tried tofu in these noodles called Shakitari noodles that are so good, and I love them so I would probably like this too!
