Recipe - Coffee Tofu Pudding Pie
I've enjoyed tofu desserts over the years but have always wondered how easy or hard they were to make. I got my hands on some tasty, workable soft tofu the other day and decided I would give it a shot. Now, this recipe involves using crust that is already made but you can easily form and bake your own too for a better flavor. I took advantage of how well tofu absorbs other flavors when pureed and mixed it with coffee for a coffee pudding pie. This is a no-bake pie and is extremely easy to make.
Step 1: Ingredients (yields 9" pie)
- 14 oz soft/silken tofu (I used Wildwood's Onederful)
- 1/4 cup pure cane sugar
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 4 tsps ground coffee
- 2 Tbsps coffee liqueur
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 9" graham pie crust
Step 2: Making the pie
I'd add a final step if there was one but you honestly just blend all of the ingredients together until it is smooth. Pour the pudding into a pie crust and let stand in the fridge for 3-4 hours until it hardens. Enjoy!
