Another Breakfast Parfait…

When we were at school, Brit and I ate tofu all the time! Pretty much every weekly grocery trip involved us buying a package of tofu. We grilled it, we baked it, we ate it cold with nothing on it (yes, we’re sort of weird like that – we actually like plain tofu!).  Then when we came home for the summer, somehow tofu didn’t make it into the grocery cart for the entire first month of the holidays.

Not acceptable!

Then we were reading our good friend Meg’s blog, specifically her chocolate orange tofu mousse, and decided that we had to have tofu. NOW!

So the next grocery trip, not one, but  two packages of tofu! And for us, 2 packages of tofu= 4 meals. A win, in my books!

After our Peach Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats Parfait from a few days ago, Brit and I found ourselves craving them! With the temperatures here in Southern Ontario on the rise, what’s better than cool and refreshing overnight oats?

It was then that Brittany had the most amazing idea: Overnight oats + Tofu Mousse.

Why didn’t we think of this before?!?

Chocolate-Blueberry Tofu Mousse Overnight Oats Parfait. This was seriously so creamy and refreshing and satisfying. They were sweet without being overtly so, and an excellent protein boost in the morning. Parfait-tion. 🙂

Chocolate Blueberry Tofu Mousse Overnight Oats Parfait

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

Oats:

1/2 c. rolled oats

1 tbsp. buckwheat groats (optional)

1 tbsp chia seeds (or 1 1/2 tbsp flax seed)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

3/4 c. milk of coice

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp. maple syrup

1 tbsp walnuts

Tofu Mousse:

1/4 block firm tofu, pressed

1/2 c. blueberries + extra for layering (we used frozen wild, but fresh will work too!)

1/4 tsp almond extract

1/4 c. dates, softened

1/2 tbsp maple syrup

Greek Yogurt

Directions:

The night before, mix together oats, groats, chia seeds and cocoa powder.  Stir in vanilla and milk and let sit in the fridge overnight.  Place your tofu on a paper towel between two plates and put something moderately heavy on top to squeeze out the excess water.

In the morning, stir the maple syrup and walnuts into the oats.  In the food processor, crumble the tofu, add blueberries, softened dates (put dates in a bowl with 1 tbsp water and microwave for 30 sec.), almond extract, and maple syrup. Process until creamy, or ‘mousse like’.

Layer a jar/glass/parfait glass with alternating layers of oats and mousse, sprinkling in extra blueberries as desired.  Top with extra blueberries, walnuts, and a blob of greek yogurt and serve!
