Chocolate-Maple Tofu Pudding
This recipe comes from cooking instructor, author and television personality Paulette Mitchell. She has 10 cookbooks to her credit, including The Complete Soy Cookbook, and most recently A Beautiful Bowl of Soup. She is best known for her quick-to-prepare gourmet recipes, which includes this ridiculously simple pudding. Use real maple syrup for the best flavor.
