Tofu has a bad rap. Some people feel it is a tasteless, textureless food. Well, maybe it wasn't prepared right! We were joined in the demo kitchens at the NW Natural Appliance Center to learn how to make a great Chocolate Mousse recipe from David and Wendy Gabbe Day.
  Tofu 8 Ounce (Firm)
  Soymilk 6 Tablespoon (2/3 cup (use vanilla flavor soymilk or any non-dairy milk))
  Vegan chocolate chips 4 Tablespoon (1/4 cup)
  Unsweetened cocoa powder 4 Tablespoon (1/4 cup)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cane sugar 4 Tablespoon (1/4 cup (i.e. evaporated cane juice))
  Unsalted natural style peanut butter 1 Tablespoon (or any nut butter)
  Vanilla extract 2 Teaspoon

1. Bring small pot of water to boil. Add tofu and boil 4-5 minutes.
2. Drain and submerge tofu in cold water to cool. Drain again.
3. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until completely smooth.

4. Chill mousse thoroughly for a firmer, thicker texture, if desired or serve as is, in bowls or cocktail cups with a spoon.

When tofu is used in dish that involves no cooking, tofu should be boiled in water 4-5 minutes to kill any bacteria that may be present.
Yield: 3-4 servings: Refrigerate and use within 5-7 days.

Variation: For a Mocha Mousse, add 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder to blender in step 2 above and continue as directed.
