When I showed up to work the other day, my co worker whispered to me that we were having a surprise potluck the following day for our supervisor who has accepted a position at another location. She asked if I would sign the greeting card, and could I please bring something to the potluck?
Of course I could! With this recipe tucked up my sleeve I can always whip up a pie at a moment’s notice.
Chocolate Pudding Pie
From VegWeb.com, where it is known as Silken Chocolate Tofu Pie. But I like this name better. I toasted a handful of sliced almonds to use as the topping.
1 (12 ounce) bag semi sweet chocolate chips
1 (12 ounce) block silken firm tofu
1/4 cup strongly brewed black coffee
1-2 tablespoons vanilla flavoring
1 graham cracker pie crust
fresh raspberries, to garnish, optional
1. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or on stovetop. Blend together tofu, chocolate chips, coffee, and vanilla.
2. Pour into graham cracker crust and chill 1-2 hours in the freezer, or 4 or more hours in the refrigerator.
3. Garnish with fresh raspberries when serving.
Serves: 8, Preparation time: 15 minutes plus 2 hours chilling
