Power Dessert – Tofu w/ Chia Seeds and Maple Syrup
In a cup, add the following:
- 3 tablespoons of chia seeds (after soaked in water for 10 minutes)
- 2/3 cup of silken tofu (I like Hodo Soy's from Berkeley Bowl)
- 2 – 3 tablespoons of maple syrup (real maple syrup not pancake syrup)
That's it. I've been eating this a lot lately, instead of ice cream and other desserts.
Emergency Dessert – Castella
My other go to dessert is Castella or Kasutera, a simple slight honey flavored sponge cake brought to Japan from Portugal. They have these in the freezer section of Berkeley Bowl. I like to keep it in the freezer and I like it as an emergency dessert for myself (as in if we've got nothing else) or in case we have guests over. It's good with tea, coffee, morning, afternoon, late evening.
