silken tofu chocolate fudge tart

IMG_5515 I’ve been exploring vegan-friendly food lately. Vegan-friendly food makes me think outside the box – it makes me steer away from the usual milk, butter, eggs routine when making sweet goodies. I have made this a number of times now, and it’s been a hit with meat eaters and vegans alike. This fudgey tart is gluten free, dairy free, high in fibre and good fats, clean and nearly raw, and not to mention incredibly decadent and indulgent. Oh! and it’s also ‘man-approved’.

Ingredients:-
Filling:
600g organic silken tofu
400g good quality 70% dark chocolate – make sure it doesn’t contain milk solids, or milk fats
3/4 cup of pure icing sugar, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste
3 tablespoons of rice, almond, or oat milk

Base:
3/4 cup of almond meal
1/2 cup of LSA [linseed, sunflower and almond meal]
3/4 – 1 cup of organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil

1. In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the base ingredients.
2. Line a loosebase tart tin with baking paper, and press the base ingredients into the bottom. The mixture should be quite moist, but don’t worry because coconut oil becomes firm in the fridge. Place tart in the fridge for 10-25minutes until hard.
3. In a food processor, stand mixer or blender combine the silken tofu, icing sugar, milk and vanilla bean paste. Mix until smooth.
4. Melt chocolate in a bain-marie or microwave and pour into the silken tofu mix. Mix until smooth and rich.
5. Pour onto set tart base and refriderate for 30min to an hour.
6. Remove from the fridge 5minutes before serving. Decorate with edible flowers and enjoy!!

Serves 12. Note – this tart must be kept chilled at all times otherwise the coconut oil will leach out and you will end up with a big soggy mess 😉

    1. Hi Courtney, I’m not a big fan of tofu myself, but you really cant taste it due to the overload of chocolate. Thanks for the comments

    Tried this today, it was fantastic although I did use a different base as I like it crunchy.
