Ingredients

  • 8 ounces silken tofu well drained
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree canned or fresh
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. each - ground cloves, nutmeg and salt
  • Optional: Whipped cream and one ounce dark chocolate cut into thin shards for topping

Instructions

  • Line a colander with some paper towels (or a clean dish towel). Place the tofu on top and then cover with a few more paper towels. Place a tea pot on top of the towel-lined tofu and allow to sit for 15 minutes to drain. This is a super easy way to squish out excess water from your tofu.
  • Place tofu, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and spices into a food processor.

  • Blend until everything is well incorporated and the pumpkin tofu mixture is rich and creamy. Transfer to an airtight container and place in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours to chill and set.
  • Spoon 1/2 cup of the mousse into a serving dish and top with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shards. Enjoy!
