Chocolate Raspberry Tofu Pie

Yes, you read that right! Its a MUST try! Not what I expected at ALL, but I'm so glad I did.

CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY TOFU PIE


10 oz semi-sweet chocolate
1 12.3-oz shelf-stable package firm silken tofu
1 tblsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup frozen raspberries, thawed
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 9-inch graham cracker pie crust
Fresh raspberries for garnish

Using which ever method you prefer, melt the chocolate. I like using the double boiler method--works best for me.

Place tofu in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add the melted chocolate, maple syrup and vanilla. Process again until smooth. Add raspberries and confectioners' sugar and process until very smooth; scraping down the sides as necessary.

Spread the mixture into the crust. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours. Garnish with fresh raspberries, if desired.

I've always had a fear of tofu - I think it's a textural thing - but this looks like something I could love!

Thanks so much for joining the Tuesday Train!

This pie looks so luscious and creamy. Would you believe I just tried tofu for the first time last year?? I know..weird, but it just looked too flabby and 'blah'..a smooth sponge lol I know I would love it in this pie!

BTW, another giveaway in a day or two..when it rains, it pours!!
