MAKING TOFU CHEESECAKE

Tofu Cheesecake

Everyone loves cheesecake, but how about making a healthy version with Tofu? It is not as rich as usual cheescake, and is light and delicious. Nutritionally, it is a very healthy pudding option too!

Base:
175g Digestive (or similar) biscuits crushed
75g Butter or soya margarine, melted

Filling:
300g Tofu
50g Dried apricots
45ml / 3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 Teaspoon lemon zest
45ml / 3 Tablespoons concentrated apple juice
1/2 Teaspoon vanilla essence

Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Mix together the crushed biscuits and melted butter then press mixture into a 20cm pie or flan dish.
  3. Simmer the apricots in 50ml of water and the lemon juice for 5 mins. Put the apricots and liquid in a blender with the tofu, lemon rind and apple juice concentrate. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour this mixture over the biscuit base and bake for about 20 minutes or until filling has set at 180 degrees C.
  5. Remove from oven and leave to cool. To serve, simply eat as it is or top with fresh fruits or jam.
