Chocolate Tofu Mousse
|Title:||Chocolate Tofu Mousse|
2 (600 gram) boxes soft tofu (regular or silken)
12 ounces pure, unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 to 1 cup pure maple syrup
Let tofu sit on the counter until it's at room temperature. This is VERY important.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or saucepan over medium-low heat.
Place the room-temperature tofu in blender or food processor, and add the maple syrup (start with a 1/2 cup and adjust as you blend to desired sweetness). Turn the blender or processor on to low speed and begin slowly pouring in the melted chocolate. Once the chocolate is mixed in and there are no lumps in the mousse, taste test and adjust the sweetness to your taste. If you add more maple syrup, be sure to process well.
Chill in refrigerator for about 15 minutes, or until completely cool. Top each serving with tofu whipped cream, a whole, fresh strawberry and a sprinkling of 100% pure chocolate shavings.
