Deep Chocolate Pie

This recipe is easy to make, tastes absolutely amazing. With thanks to Rachel and happy memories of gourmet evenings at Wild Ginger.

Ingredients

9oz vegan digestive biscuits, crushed
5oz vegan margarine, melted
1 level tsp Agar flakes
7oz plain chocolate
1 tbsp of golden syrup
8oz tofu (silken tofu works best)

Notes

You should be able to get Agar flakes and vegan digestive biscuits at your local wholefood shop. Serve small slices (it's quite rich) decorated with orange peel and slices of orange. Alternatively, serve with a homemade fruit coulis and some vegan ice-cream (e.g. Swedish Glace vanilla flavour). If you have some chocolate left over, grate this and sprinkle over the top. Delicious!

 

Method

Mix the crushed biscuits with the margarine. Put into a greased cake tin (preferably with a removable bottom, or else line the base with greaseproof paper) and pat down firmly.

Make the Agar flakes up with half a pint of water (following the instructions on the packet).

Meanwhile melt the chocolate and blend together with the golden syrup and tofu. Blend in the Agar mixture and pour on top of the biscuit base.

Chill for 2 hours.
