Much Love Monday: Moo-Less Chocolate Pie

Do you ever watch Good Eats? That show is so dated, in Apple Family Values episode, they mentioned Apple computers as a dead computer company, along with calling corn syrup the "future" and I lost interest. My DVR kept recording and before I erased all the recordings, I watched "Tofu World". Then another episode and another. Now, it's one of my favorite shows on the Cooking Channel. Sure, I could do without the irrelevant commentary, but the recipes and advice on classic kitchen gadgets are as true now as they were then.

Here is the original recipe, but here is my version; For these you just need a double boiler (I love this one), a food processor or blender, a spatula and a pie tin.

13 ounces semisweet chocolate chips 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 pound silken tofu, drained 1 tsp agave 1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp cinnamon 1 pie crust (I used this recipe)

Melt the chocolate chips in the double boiler and stir with the spatula. Combine the tofu, chocolate mixture and agave in a blender or food processor and spin until smooth, about 2 minutes. While spinning, add the vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Pour the filling into the crust and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until the filling sets firm.

Moo-Less Chocolate Pie recipe is a gem. It's one of the best, fastest things I've made and I can't wait to trick my friends when I tell them "boom, you're eating a tofu pie". I just hope they don't return the same surprise with a soy allergy.
