Macaroni Cheese & Chocolate Hazelnut Almond Dessert – Tofutastic!

I was recently sent 2 packets of Silken Tofu to play with and to see what I could come up with and being interested in substitutes for higher fat food, this was a perfect opportunity to experiment.

I didn’t want to do the usual things with Tofu like using in curries and soups. I wanted to use it as a substitute for a dessert, or as an alternative to cream so here’s what I came up with!

Macaroni Cheese 

For this one you need

  • 12oz dry macaroni
  • 1 pack Morinaga Silken Tofu
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 340g of strong cheese
  • 1 tsp english mustard

Cook the macaroni as directed. Blend tofu, butter, cheese, mustard, salt and pepper in a blender.  Drain macaroni, and while it’s still steaming hot, mix together with the cheese/tofu mix.  Pop under the grill to brown off the top.  Serve.

Now for dessert:

I love nutty chocolate spread and creamy puddings, so I decided instead of using my Quark as a base, I would substitute that for a pack of Silken Tofu.  It’s plain and carries the flavour really well.  Silken Tofu is also amazing blended and used as a base, so I thought I’d give it a go and make:

chocolate tofu pudding

Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Dessert

  • 1 pack Morinaga Silken Tofu
  • 1 bar of Tesco every day value milk chocolate
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (1 if you don’t like it as thick)
  • 2 tbsp Choc Shot
  • 2 tbsp Monin Hazelnut sugar free syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp of Clarks carob fruit syrup

In a blender the tofu, choc shot, sugar free syrup, vanilla extract and carob syrup in a blender.  Melt the chocolate and pour into blender.  Blend for 30 seconds, then spoon out into dishes.  Sprinkle with crushed digestive, or icing sugar.

It’s quite a heavy pudding so this should serve 4 people as you don’t need that much. If you want it thinner, only use 1 tbsp of almond butter.

There’s quite a bit you can do with silken tofu and it’s not just for vegetarians as it’s multi-use across the board.  Just integrate it, use it and love it.  Tofu is terrific.
