Last night I tried making some kind of sweet dessert with some of the left over silken tofu. It was interesting! I blended it up with 80g frozen cherries (sainsburys dark sweet cherries that are delicious) but it tasted very odd (needed more sweetening). I also wanted to make it a chocolatey one, so I melted a cube of dark chocolate, but (school-boy error) when I added on top the cold tofu and frozen cherries mixture it froze the chocolate to the bowl. Hmm. So then I added some agave and some cocoa powder, and blended it up again, and it turned into this;
I could taste the cherries really well, and the chocolate flavour also came through. In the end it was a mini success, and I topped it with half a pack of bear granola.
I was actually impressed, but I think I preferred the silken tofu in savoury dishes like the pumpkin pasta, so I will be looking for more of those.
Work was busy, and on my way home I had to pop to the shops for a few things for dinner. I stuck to the list, except for these;
They are so cute! And also bargainous- 2 for £1.50! Now I just have to decide what to do with them- I am thinking maybe baking them and stuffing them with some kind of vegetable-quinoa mix.
Now my brain is buzzing from working late, so I am looking forward to relaxing (or zonking out) in front of Don’t Tell the Bride- yay!
How do you unwind (aside from going for a run) after busy days?
