Soy oh howdy are we gonna get busy with some tofu. I thought I would start you off with dessert. This is one of my own concoctions, in fact everything I will be posting will be invented by me. We have a tofu 'shortrib' coming up along with some crunchy tacos with tofu 'taco meat' and a tofu breakfast scramble 'a la chorizo' just to tease with a few - but today it is the flan. Yuppo a tofu flan! I made a concentrated soymilk and added a decent amount of agar agar some mexican vanilla and I sweetened it with agave. I made a carob syrup with more agave and there you have it my unbaked dairy and egg free tofu flan. For the other dishes I am going to make some of the tofu but most of it I will pick up from a reputable source, the tofu that I make will be for special accents.
The pup wanted a maraschino cherry on his and he dogged it. It's creamy tasty and ever so light and the best part is you are eating -protein. When I make this again I might try coloring it with carrot juice or tumeric to get more of a yellow 'flan' effect.
