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.
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.
