I bought a package of silken tofu for the first time the other day, planning on making some tofu mayo, but I'm in the process of moving and already packed my food processor. I've never made anything else with silken tofu. What recipes would you recommend I make using silken tofu? I'm open to anything that doesn't require a food processor.

Controversially, I make my tofu scrambles with silken, I prefer the softer texture!

My boyfriend makes a delicious chocolate mousse. He uses a blender but a whisk or a strong fork would work too.
400 gr silken tofu
200 gr dark chocolate, melted in a double boiler
1 package of vanilla sugar
a tablespoon of rum or Cointreau (optional)

And whisk/blend all together until smooth. Refrigerate for a few hours.

You could make a lime pie? Make a sweet shortcrust pastry case, then blend up the tofu with the juice and zest of a lime (or lemon) and some icing sugar for the filling. Or a chocolate cheesecake. I mostly use it for desserts.

Yeah, I like a silken scramble! Or it makes a nice '80s-style quiche base, maybe something like spinach and mushroom on a wholemeal crust, plenty of garlic and soy sauce.

Smlove pie! You could absolutely mix it up by hand.

I like it in scrambles, too. It also works fine in tofu salad recipes. Or use it as egg replacer in baking recipes - I've use it when veganizing brownie or blondie recipes.

Or just make chocolate mousse. Yum.
