My friend Jilna has spent time researching new recipes as I have recently become vegan. They look so good I had to share them with you! Please share what you think if you make them?
Chocolate sauce (vegan, using tofu)
· 10 ounces silken soft tofu
· 1/4 cup cocoa powder
· 2 to 4 Tablespoons maple syrup
· 2 to 3 Tablespoons Grand Marnier
· Vanilla extract
Drain the tofu in a fine-mesh strainer for 15 minutes.
In a blender or food processor, puree the tofu until creamy, about 30 seconds. Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, Grand Marnier, and the vanilla extract. Blend thoroughly, scraping down the sides of the container. Blend until the mixture is extremely smooth.
Transfer to a well-sealed container and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Keeps for up to three days.
Yield: 1-1/2 cups
