Ok, don’t freak out seeing the title. If you hate tofu, let me tell you that it is not as bad as you think it is! 😀 Just try it in this form & I’m sure you will like it! It is surprisingly delicious and since Tofu is healthy, you can offset the guilt of eating a high-calorie dish by a nutritious dish! 😉
A typical mousse is made from egg & cream in combination with other flavors. But since this is a pure vegetarian blog, I had to look for alternatives. I came across an interesting Vegan recipe. I’ve made suitable variations to the recipe to make it Vegetarian.

Ingredients
SILKEN TOFU – 200 grams (7 oz.) {Read about it here}
Cooking Chocolate – 200 grams (or chocolate chips)
Soy Milk – 20-25 ml (I used Chocolate flavored)
Sugar / Maple Syrup – 1-2 tablespoons (or as per taste)
Vanilla Extract – 1/2 teaspoon

Method
1. Add the tofu into a blender & blend well for about 2 minutes. (you can use a hand blender too)

2. Add the soy milk, sugar and vanilla extract. Puree until completely smooth. Set aside.

3. Using the double boiler method, melt the chocolate.{take a small sauce pan and fill half way with water. On top of that place a small sauté pan. Fill the sauté pan with chocolate chips and bring the water to a boil. Use a rubber spatula to mix the chocolate as it melts. Once melted, remove from heat and let cool for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally}
                         
4. Add the melted chocolate to the tofu mixture & blend until you get a smooth mixture. (No lumps)

5. Transfer the mixture into an air-tight container or a bowl covered in saran wrap and let chill for 1-2 hours.

6. ENJOY your healthy mousse! 🙂

*** VERDICT: Ah, well I prefer the high-calorie creamy mousse! 🙂 If you don’t like the smell of soy milk or tofu, then this one is definitely NOT for you. This one is good, no doubt about THAT. But the original one is better any day! 😉 Watch out for the authentic mousse. Coming up soon…
