New and totally not-diet-friendly Friday posts: Asian-ish desserts!
I know, terribly broad subject. This is really just an excuse for me to eat sweets. Bwahahaha!
Well, to be fair, today's tofu pie isn't all that bad for you, being that it's pretty much a tofu version of cheesecake. Sak's great grandmother used to own a tofu shop, so they have one of those super-secret-family-recipes. Unfortunately, Sak has not yet been trusted with the knowledge, so we'll be using a different recipe (from one of our cookbooks). It's nearly identical to this one I found online though, if you're interested.
First we made the lemon jello, allowing it to set to a "gravy-like consistency", whatever that is. Gravy can be varying thicknesses, depending on the type, I think!
Lastly, just stick it in a pie crust and chill in the fridge.
It's kinda like a mix between jello consistency and custard consistency. I think maybe if I didn't use fat-free whip, it may have been a little richer in "oomph", but a light treat isn't so bad! Just don't eat the whole pie in one sitting by yourself. Tofu is loaded with protein, so expect a "meat" coma/stomachache if you go hog-wild!
Have you had tofu pie before?
