Chocolate and amaretto mousse

Silken tofu has a softer texture than firm, making it the perfect substitute for eggs in this fluffy mousse, which can be whipped up in minutes. Dark chocolate and amaretto are a grown- up match made in heaven

Ingredients

  • 100g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids) - use dairy-free chocolate if required
  • 1 x 349g pack silken tofu, at room temperature (we used Mori-Nu)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp amaretto liqueur
  • 1 tbsp flaked almonds
  • finely grated zest of 1⁄4 orange

Step by step

Get ahead
Make up to 2 days ahead and chill until ready to serve
  1. Set aside one square of the chocolate for garnish. Break the rest into pieces and melt it in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water, ensuring the bowl does not touch the water. Stir occasionally.
  2. In the meantime, blitz the silken tofu and maple syrup in a high-power blender or food processor until smooth.
  3. Carefully pour the melted chocolate into the tofu mixture, using a spatula to scrape the edges of the bowl. Add the amaretto, then blitz again until combined and silky smooth. Spoon into ramekins or dessert glasses, then chill for at least 1 hour.
  4. Just before serving, lightly toast the flaked almonds in a dry pan for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat until golden. Scatter them over the mousse, along with the orange zest, and finely grate over the reserved dark chocolate.
