Tofu Chocolate Dessert
10 ounces tofu, extra firm
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup (or other sweetener) or to taste
1/2 cup tahini (sesame butter)
3/4 cup cold water (or soy milk)
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped medium coarse
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
Prepared and cooled 9-inch pie crust
Cube tofu, then process in food processor until very smooth. Add vanilla and maple syrup while continuing to blend. Stop to add tahini, then continue to blend. Mixture will clump up but smooth out as you continue processing. Add water in two or more additions, blending between. Mixture should be quite soft and probably quite warm. Divide mixture in half.
Place half in bowl and leave half in processor. Fold walnuts into the bowl portion (vanilla) and cocoa powder into the processor portion (chocolate).
Blend chocolate portion until smooth. Spread both portions into pie crust. Now, swirl the vanilla and chocolate together for an attractive appearance. Chill thoroughly. Serve with whipped cream or Rice Dream (available at health food stores).
