Chocolate Tofu Pudding

Tofu as dessert is not an alien concept for me, after all, I do grow up eating tons of dou hua (soy bean pudding). But I admit that I have never thought of taking this experience up a notch, until I found out about chocolate tofu pudding! Believe me, nobody would guess that this lovely dessert is made out from silken tofu. So if you are counting calories, or want a healthy dessert once in a while, make this. You can feed this to tofu haters and they won’t even know what hit them ;)

    Can you tell me how much gelatin in teaspoons please? This sounds wonderful! Also can I use a sugar substitute like stevia?

    • Anita says:

      Sure! 5 gram gelatin = 1 2/3 teaspoon. I have never tried using stevia Susan, but I don't see how it won't work, especially since we don't need the sugar to create caramel in this recipe :)
