Vegan chocolate mousse pie made with tofu with a pecan brownie crust, raspberry chia jam and fresh berries. Gluten-free can be made nut free.
I had an excess of berries from berry picking so wanted to put them to good use and 'wow' the crowds. I have fed this tart to my non-vegan 'in-laws,' friends and crowds at market stalls and everyone LOVED it. Fussy Mr Rainbow even said it's his favourite dessert of mine of all time!
Ingredients to make this chocolate mousse tart
The tofu is the surprise and most important ingredient in this chocolate mousse pie tart. I've had bulky meat-eaters approach me after having a slice of the tart to ask me for the recipe and often exclaimed: IT HAS TOFU IN IT?! NO WAY!
Thanks to chocolate and sweetener, you cannot taste the tofu at all. Trust me, I've had many tofu-haters have a slice of this tart and proceeded to say how amazing it is.
I looove making this tart because the ingredients are super accessible - basically just pantry ingredients, some tofu and berries.
It's a 'magic' tart
Believe it or not, you can can have have this tart unbaked, baked or frozen!
Baking the tart makes the base crunchy and the filling fudgy. Freezing the cake is perfect for the Summer months!

I also created a video of me making the tart as I think it's easier to watch a video than to read ;):
