1 14oz Silken Tofu (I like to use House Foods brand)
¾ cup chocolate chip morsels (I like to use Whole Foods 365 Vegan)
½ cup Suzanne’s Ricemellow Crème
1 Graham Cracker Crust ready-to-use (by Arrowhead Mills, dairy and honey free)

Remove tofu from container and discard liquid. Rinse and place tofu in between 2 paper towels and gently press to soak up any liquid. Place tofu in a blender and puree until smooth, scrapping down sides with spatula (approx 1 minute).

Melt chocolate chip morsels on paper plate in microwave (approx 60 seconds until soft).  Add ricemellow and melted chocolate to blender and blend until combined, scrapping down sides with spatula (approx 2 minutes).

Pour into Arrowhead Mills crust and refrigerate for at least 3 hours before eating. Add shaved chocolate to top for garnish. This is a healthy dessert recipe. Tofu supplies calcium, protein, and is low in calories and fat.

There are many alternatives to using eggs. You ask, ‘why would you want to do that’? Well, an egg is loaded with cholesterol and 70% of the calories come from fat! Not only that, but a big portion of that is saturated fat! Eggs are also the leading cause for food poisoning due to the fact that they are the perfect host for salmonella bacteria. The shell of an egg is thin, porous, and fragile living in dirty and over-crowded egg farm conditions. I think you get the picture. Knowing that, why would you not want to make a change today?!
 
If you want scrambled eggs, try crumbling extra firm tofu in your new scrambled egg conversion, called tofu scramble.
 
For baking, I prefer Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer. There are other brands available, so find one that you like. Read the package instructions, as each  one is slightly different. You will need to whisk the egg replacer powder with water to arrive at your egg substitution for baking. Keeps well in freezer (store in freezer bag).
 
Aside from egg replacers, you can use
1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce for each egg the recipe calls for which works well to bind ingredients in muffins and cakes.
Half of a mashed banana can also be used to replace 1 egg. Use this in  breads, muffins and cakes where you want the banana flavoring.
Or, try 1 heaping tablespoon of soy flour or cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons of water for each egg in a baked product.

Tofu is a great alternative to using egg. Try 1/4 cup of pureed soft silken tofu when making puddings and mousse.

For main course meals, such as meatloaf and burgers, try using tomato paste, moistened bread crumbs or mashed potatoes. Egg replacers do work well for these type of recipes.

1 package Gardein Chipotle Lime Crispy Fingers (bake according to package instructions)
3 handfuls of spring mix baby greens
1/2 orange bell pepper, sliced and chopped into small pieces
3 lime halves for garnish

Dipping sauces:
Creamy Lime
4 TBL Veganaise
juice of 1 lime

Squeeze lime juice into veganaise in a small bowl and mix well. Consistency should be thin enough to drizzle.

Cayenne Garlic:
4 TBL Majestic Garlic spread
cayenne pepper (about 3-4 shakes), to your liking

Combine ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.

I am torn between both sauces. I enjoy them equally with this dish and both go well with a side of baked fries. Plate as shown in picture. Be sure to eat the greens and bell pepper with the baked tenders and dipping sauces!

Serves 3

Sweet Breath

6 TBL dairy-free mayonnaise (I like Vegenaise)

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Use as a dipping sauce with sweet potato fries, as a sandwich spread, a veggie burger topping, or with raw vegetables (broccoli and cauliflower are my favorites).
