Tonight I'm heading to Brooklyn for a friend's party, which should be awesome! I'm going to bring a pie to the extravaganza that I made yesterday. I decided to try recreating a favorite dessert of mine from Native Foods - the vegan restaurant I used to work at in California. It's called Chocolate Tofu Love Pie and it's a-maz-ing. I know that tofu and chocolate sound like a really gross combination, but the pie is magical.. seriously. Unfortunately, the recipe is top secret, but I have a general idea of what's in it from it's title.. what I didn't know about the recipe, I filled in with recipes from the internet. I made mine with a peanut butter twist and an almond crust. I'm really happy with how it turned out, but I probably won't tell anyone that it's made of tofu until after they've eaten it! The recipe I used is completely vegan and totally DELICIOUS. I used an almond crust recipe that I found without changing anything and I replaced the dried cherries in a filling recipe I found with peanut butter. Here are the recipes I used... Crust // Filling
Well, I'm off to watch The Chipmunk Adventure (if you haven't seen it.. do yourself a favor and click on that link..) while I get ready for tonight. Happy New Year everyone!!!!
