Silky chocolate mousse
- 150g silken tofu, drained
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 5g dark chocolate
- Pat dry the tofu and then puree in a food processor or blender for a few seconds until smooth.
- Add the vanilla, sift in the cocoa (to avoid lumps) and blend briefly.
- Melt the chocolate on low power in a microwave until runny (if the chocolate cools too fast the texture might become grainy instead of mixing in smoothly).
- Add to the tofu mixture in the food processor. Pulse until smooth.
- Divide between two little serving dishes, such as ramekins, and pop in the fridge to chill until ready to serve.
