Mix silken tofu, organic sugar, and cocoa in a blender until thick and creamy. Refridgerate and serve. PUDDING!

16-ounce tub silken tofu

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

3 to 4 tablespoons maple syrup or sugar, or to taste

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional

Puree the tofu in a food processor or blender until completely smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan and add the chocolate chips. Cook over medium low heat, stirring often, until the chocolate chips have melted. Stir in the maple syrup and optional vanilla.



Allow to cool completely, then serve at room temperature

sling it in a blender with some cacao nibs (or cocoa powder), some vanilla essence and some maple syrupl Blitz until it cries.



Spoon into a bowl, then swirl some blitzed (and sieved) rasperries in it.

I like to cut it into small cubes and add it to miso soup with onions and spinach (and sometimes seaweed).

Fruit Tofu Smoothie!



3 oz silken tofu

1/2 cup soy or almond milk (if you're not keen on the "beany" aftertaste of soy, the almond milk really cuts it down)

1/4 cup orange juice or juice from 1 orange

1/4 cup water

1 cup frozen fruit (I usually add a mix - today it's pineapple and strawberries )

Sweetener if desired (I like it sweet so I add 1 tsp xylitol)

1 tbsp ground flaxseed

1 tbsp rice protein powder (optional, only if you're looking for a portien boost)

Blend in a blender. This is for one serving so you can always add more stuff. The tofu makes this a nice creamy thick shake.

Silken tofu also makes AWESOME "ranch" dressing/dip.



6 oz. silken style tofu -- firm or extra firm

1/4 C. Vegan Mayonnaise

1/4 C. green onion or chives -- finely chopped

3 T. water

4 t. lemon juice

1 T. freshly chopped parsley (FRESH IS SO MUCH BETTER HERE!)

1 T. freshly chopped dill (optional but good!!)

1 T. tamari soy sauce, or Bragg's Liquid Aminos

1 1/2 t. garlic -- minced

salt and pepper -- to taste

1 dash cayenne pepper



In a blender or food processor, combine all of the ingredients, and process until smooth.



Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days (yeah, like it'll last that long!).

If you live in the US, the little packets of "Uncle Dans Ranch Mix" brand of dry powdered ranch dressing mix is vegan! Just mix with some blended tofu and soy mayo. Or Tofutti "better than sour cream" and Vegenaise.



Presto, instant vegan ranch that'll fool ANY omni out there.
