Strawberry Tofu Cheesecake

As a vegetarian, the intake of protein is fundamental to keep our diets balanced. Why not have it in the form of one of the most delicious deserts around? Tofu is high in protein but without cholesterol and is very low in fat. A slice like the one in the picture is almost a meal:-)

Ingredients: 500 grms. of silk tofu, miso paste, 200 ml oats cream, 250 grms. of strawberries, 1 pack of sugar free maria biscuits, apple juice, coconut oil, agar-agar and agave syrup (or another natural sweetener).

Preparation: Cut the tofu in thin slices and spread the miso paste in both sides of each slice. Let it marinate for 24 hours in the fridge. In the next day, take the excess miso paste from the tofu. Blend the tofu with the oats cream and add the agave syrup (3 tbs.). Let is rest. Crush the maria biscuits in a food processor (or by hand if you have to) and when finished add 2 tsp. of coconut oil and a little bit of apple juice until is moist enough. Use the biscuits to make a base for you cheesecake. Once ready pour the tofu mix on top and let it rest on the fridge.

The last bit: put 1 tbs. of agar-agar in a pan and cover with minimum of water, let it rest for 10 minutes while you prepare a strawberry smoothie in your blender, adding 2 tsp. of agave syrup and the rest of your oats cream (a little water might be needed).

Add the smoothie to the pan and now heat all the mix for about 5 minutes, Let it cool down and then pour on top of the cheesecake. The whole mix should stay in the fridge for about 1 hour before you serve it. In-joy

  2. This was my best desert ever made! My silk tofu was so silky that it almost fell apart during the preparation with the miso. So I cut it in very smal slices adding a very thin layer of miso. Working through the tofuparts as if reading a book, turning the pages with a thin slice/spatula, so they wouldn’t break.
    The topping was a bit soft light pinky color, can it be an affect of the agaragar?
    Thanks Sofia for this website, I just saw the browniehearts, whaaaa, they look delicious. i’m gonna try them soon :o)
    Love saskia
