Tofu Chocolate Mousse Pie

Here's another quick post. I've been pretty swamped at home and work, so not much cooking.

I stumbled on the Gourmet Sleuth website the other day. Though it is not really a veg friendly site, they published an article/recipe for Chocolate Mousse Pie with Chocolate Crumb Crust.

One very interesting thing about this article is that they compare the nutritional information of the Tofu Chocolate Mousse pie to a regular Chocolate Mousse pie. Guess which one is healthier...I know, no surprise there. It is pretty cool to see the difference portrayed in an easy to read table on their site though.

Scroll down towards the end of the article to see that. The recipe looks good and I may give it a try soon.

"We have to admit, this pie is very good. One taster had no idea it was tofu until we told him. Tofu is wonderful when it comes to absorbing flavors and the bittersweet chocolate was a perfect combination.
The texture was smooth and creamy. This is a great way to add some soy to your diet."

Oh, that's rich. I love this kind of chatter... What a shocker! It tastes good! It's good for you! Fool your friends... :o)

Great find, Jody. It looks scrumptious!! Hope you have time to make it and then maybe post a photo...

Yum....just seeing the words tofu chocolate mousse pie is making me salivate.

I sometimes make chocolate mousse by whipping melted dark chocolate and silken tofu in the blender.
