Ok. I need suggestions. I have a load of tofu (soft and firm). The tofu is going to expire soon, so I need to use it up somehow. I've put some in bread, baked an un-cheesecake and made some tofu ice cream, now what? Any ideas that use large amounts of the stuff would be great!<br><br>
I also have on hand a big bag of basmati rice, plenty of pasta, some sundried tomatos, flour and stuff and plenty of seasonings that could go with it. I'd like to try and avoid having to buy 20 extra things to complete a recipe, but getting a few is to be expected. Please help! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Provided you have some chocolate on-hand and some of the tofu is either soft or silken, you could make some chocolate pudding and make fudgsicles out of them. Since they'd be frozen, you wouldn't have to worry about eating all that tofu right away. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

Ooh, that's a good idea! I do have some cocoa. Do you know of a good recipe that would freeze well?

Here you go:<br><br><br><br>
12 oz silken tofu (any density, though I prefer the soft when freezing)<br><br>
12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips<br><br><br><br>
Puree tofu in blender. Melt chocolate over low heat. Add chocolate to blender and blend until smooth. Freeze in freezer-safe containers (I have those little tupperware popsicle things, but I suppose you could just put it in anything and scoop it out ?)<br><br>
Or you can just eat it all before it makes it to the freezer-containers, which often happens when I make it...<br><br><br><br>
I have another recipe around here for if you have cocoa powder... it's about he same thing, but you have to add the sugar and some oil. Umm.. can't find it just now, but if you need it, just let me know and I'll do some digging. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>

Okay, here's the other version:<br><br><br><br>
INGREDIENTS<br><br><br><br>
1 1/2 lb / 700 g soft tofu<br><br>
1 1/4 cups unrefined sugar<br><br>
1/3 cups cocoa<br><br>
1/4 cup oil<br><br>
1 1/2 t vanilla<br><br>
1/4 t salt<br><br><br><br>
METHOD<br><br>
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into individual serving dishes or a baked pie shell. Chill until firm and serve.<br><br><br><br>
It's almost exactly the same as the one I had, but I lifted this off of vegan_food.net <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
And while I'm lifting things...<br><br><br><br>
Tofu Chocolate Ice Cream<br><br>
Dessert - Ice cream<br><br><br><br>
INGREDIENTS<br><br><br><br>
1 box 12 oz / 340 g Mori Nu Soft Silken Tofu (do not use low fat, do not drain)<br><br>
1 x 12 oz / 340 g bag vegan chocolate chips, melted on low heat and cooled<br><br>
1-2 T vanilla (you can use whatever flavor you like)<br><br>
1 cup rice milk (you can substitute with soy milk, almond milk etc.)<br><br><br><br>
METHOD<br><br>
Put the tofu in a blender and process until very smooth. Add the melted, cooled chocolate and process until well combined, you will have to stop and scrape the sides of the blender. Add the rice milk and vanilla and process until well blended. Pour into a covered container and chill until ready to use.<br><br><br><br>
Freeze in an ice cream freezer according to manufacturer directions.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

Yummy things there.<br><br><br><br>
Have fun,<br><br>

You could make <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> tofu jerky<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> . It really cooks down and lasts forever.<br><br><br><br>
Cut your yofu into strips and marinate for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight) in pineapple juice, soy sauce, cayenne pepper and fresh or ground ginger. Bake for 6 hours at 200 degrees, turning every hour. Be sure your home all day, because that's a long time.<br><br><br><br>
i got this recipe from the book <i>How it all Vegan</i>. I don't know if I have it exactly, but this is how I make mine.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:">
