Tofu Chocolate Pudding

Soy Pudding | Silken Tofu and chocolate dessert recipe
For a self proclaimed Tofu lover, this blog doesn't seem to carry as many tofu recipes as I would like to! Only recently when I was asked for one tofu recipe, that I claimed in some post as a favorite, did it occur to me (a quick search did it) that the number of tofu recipes in this site are pathetic to say the least. Had to rectify that pronto, hence we come to today's post. Thought of starting out on a sweet note and hence a dessert it is. Of course, its vegan and needless to say - its chocolate! If you chocolate lovers are looking disgusted and are ogling at me for having wasted precious chocolate with tofu - please, wait! hear me out! You HAVE to TRUST me on this -  You won't taste the tofu at all and that's a PROMISE!

One of the best things I like about cooking is exploring new food products (there are zillion out there) and new ways of cooking them. If I was asked to cook the same mundane things again and again - I would have given up on cooking ages ago leave alone have a blog. One such exploration acquainted me with this brand of Japanese tofu. I LOVE it! I use it for anything and everything. I find it perfect to substitute it for most of the non vegetarian recipes. It holds well.  There are only 2 brands of tofu that I use and this is one. This was the first recipe I tried when I got this silken tofu (firm). I will follow up with many more personal favorites in the days to come. If you can't find find this brand, you can use regular silken tofu that you find in your local stores too. Soy Pudding | Silken Tofu and chocolate dessert recipe The most important thing to keep in mind for this dessert is refrigeration time. The more you keep it, better the taste. Since tofu is bland, its essential that you give it time to absorb the flavors from other ingredients added to it. Stronger the flavor better the tofu. Hence, just like you would do for the regular recipes, even a dessert needs its sitting time for a lip smacking tofu based recipe. The prep time is a joke and the cooking time minimal. Sure worth a try :)
Basic Information
Prep Time: 2 to 4 hours
Cook Time: Under 15 min
Serves: 4 people
Yield: Serves 4-5 people or 2 chocolate lovers!
Ingredients
  • 1 packet (12.3 oz) Mori Nu Organic Silken Tofu (firm) (or use regular silken tofu)
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or use Vegan chocolate chips)

Method
1
Combine the water and chocolate chips on top of a double boiler to melt. Bump up the chocolate chips to 3/4 cup for a more chocolaty taste. I found 2/3 perfect for my needs.

IMPORTANT STEP: Refrigerate this for at least 2 hours. The longer you keep it, better for the tofu and chocolate to mingle. This picture is after 2.5 hours. See how it has thickened?

I piped it into ramekins and served them. You can toss in few raspberries, dust them with cocoa powder or like me - just serve them as it is! Its pure chocolate indulgence! Soy Pudding | Silken Tofu and chocolate dessert recipe

    I just made some and it’s delicious. Not quite sweet enough for my kids, though. That’s probably because I used bittersweet (65%) chips. I added some agave, but I think it could also work with soaked dates, which I would prefer to use next time.

    Hi DK! The tofu chocolate pudding recipe is a master piece! My family loves it! I have made it for my guests – they loved it! I work with diabetic patients, especially pregnant women – they are all uniformly dessert starved. I gave out the recipe to some of my patients – they love it too! I just substitute with bitter-sweet chocolate, and have them top it up with roasted nuts and fresh fruit – and that’s a great snack for any diabetic!
    Keep up the great work! I’ve enjoyed making the dal makhani and the badam kheer too – they turned out just great :) Looking forward to more fun vegetarian recipes.

    I am so glad to hear that. Thank you :) –DK

    Hi :) just a little doubt pls help me clear -But why water? As far as I know water is chocolate’s greatest enemy ? Won’t the chocolate go bad while we heat it along with water?

    Wow! I am a believer now. I added instant coffee powder, vanilla extract, and 1 Tb. agave. Topped with pecans, or cinnamon, or salt. Wonderful! Thank you!
