Ok kiddies (veggies/vegans and meat-eaters alike!), here’s a recipe that will satisfy all and really surprise some!
Vegan Tofu Cheesecake
8 to 10 pieces of baking chocolate (one package is about right)
1 1/2 cups sugar
16 oz silken tofu
2 tsp vanilla extract
9” pie crust
Put the tofu, sugar, and flavoring in a blender and puree. Put the chocolate in a microwaveable bowl and heat until melted; you may have to stir it half-way through to make sure it heats evenly. Add the melted chocolate to the other ingredients and blend until they’re completely mixed. Empty the blender into the pie crust. Smooth out the surface of the filling and chill it until it sets.
To be honest, I tried it because I wanted to make something for my vegan friend’s birthday and every other recipe I found involved a LOT more work:) Boy, am I glad I did :) I’ve made this for people who start to gag at the mere mention of the word ‘vegan’ and/or ‘tofu’, and I’ve given it to children (who came back for more, even after they found out what it’s made of!)
It doesn’t hurt that it’s also easy-kapeezy to make:)
