JAFFA CAROB TOFU MOUSSE
Some of my clients have been asking me for vegetarian deserts made with tofu as they are not so familiar how to cook with it, so here is one that is a little indulgent dare I say...trial it out and enjoy the flavours as well as the nutrients as it is rich in protein. You can serve it up as a simple mousse on its own or better yet, sprinkle it with some of the nut granola from the delicious nut granola recipe ... or wait for it... if you are up for the full festivity you can make the nut granola base and top it with the carob tofu mousse complete with Orange zest decorations.
1 packet silken tofu (about 300g)
6 tsp maple syrup
3 Tbsp Carob powder
1 tsp simply organic orange flavour (orange oil in sunflower oil base) or 1 Tbsp fresh orange zest
Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor till smooth and creamy. Place in little desert dishes and refrigerate for 20 mins before serving. Remember you can serve it up as is or add some nut granola sprinkle to go on top. In the picture below we have sprinkled the tofu mousse with carob powder and added some cumquats as decoration. 🍋
