What’s a vegetarian (sister of a Vegan) to do when she wants a treat? Chocolate silk pie!
No, I’m not kidding.
The pie is actually Chocolate Silk Pie, courtesy of cousin Lesley.
A vegetarian with a sister who is a Vegan (someone who uses no animal products at all), Lesley was looking for ways to support a Vegan sweet tooth.
I will admit we were skeptical at first, but after the first bite we were sold.
It’s light and chocolaty and flavorful—and simple to make, requiring only three ingredients (semi-sweet chocolate bits, firm tofu, and maple syrup), a blender, and a graham cracker crust.
