    And since it’s Cinco de Mayo let’s go Mexican!

    Mexican Chocolate Tofu Pudding
    From Mark Bittman
    silken tofu
    bittersweet or semisweet chocolate
    vanilla extract
    ground cinnamon
    chili powder
    chocolate shavings (optional)

    Details and directions at Mexican Chocolate Tofu Pudding
    According to the Rules of the Interwebs, you shouldn’t post someone else’s entire recipe, only part of it with a link to the rest, unless you’ve changed the recipe up bigtime.

    Mark says “The texture of the pudding, which must be made with silken tofu, is almost unbelievably good. The silken tofu packed in aseptic boxes yields a slightly better texture than that packed in tubs.” and suggests that you “use the highest quality chocolate — semisweet or bittersweet, please — you can lay your hands on.”
    Morinaga SilkenTofu (also known as Mori-Nu SilkenTofu) is packed in aseptic boxes and is the easiest to find. It’s “shelf-stable” so it’s not in the refrigerated section.
