I used about 1/2 cup of a whole package of silken tofu...what do I do with it now? I only have a couple more days until it goes bad and need some recipe ideas! Ideally something other than smoothies...but then again, anything that'll put the tofu to good use <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

- miso soup: Mix miso with boiling water, add cubed silken tofu and whatever else you like in miso soup.<br><br><br><br>
- vegan caprese salad: Alternate slices of tomato with slices of silken tofu, fresh basil (dried if you don't have fresh), salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.<br><br><br><br>
- brownies: Vegan brownies often call for silken tofu. I don't have a recipe on me, but you could try vegweb.com.

How about making some pudding? I don't have a recipe, but you could probably find some on Vegweb, or through google.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: You could also make soy ice popsicles by adding some fruit, juice, soymilk, etc. to the tofu. Or maybe some tofu quiche.

Just in case you haven't found a recipe for the pudding yet, here's a really good, really easy one-<br><br><br><br>
Chocolate Pudding<br><br><br><br>
1 10 1/2-oz package silken tofu (firm), crumbled<br><br>
2 /3 C unbleached cane sugar (I use Sucanat)<br><br>
1/3 C unsweetened cocoa powder<br><br>
2 t vanilla extract<br><br>
pinch of salt<br><br><br><br>
Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, creamy, and thick. Chill in the refrigerator until serving time.

Hey and once you make the chocolate pudding you can still freeze it. That's how I make fudgesicles. And I love it. My pudding recipes is alittle different. I melt chocolate rather than the cocoa. But I'm sure it would work either way as a great fudgesicle!<br><br>
Have fun

Melting chocolate for it instead of using cocoa sounds *very* good! How much do you melt? I'd like to try making fudge pops myself sometime. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

hmmm....I can remember exactly but I think it was around 1/2 of a cup of chocolate chips that I used. You could try that and then if the pudding didn't seem chocolately enough you could add some more...And then spoon it into popsicle molds and you've got a fantastic frozen treat-full of great protein...I told myself it was very, very healthy!!!
