Tofu Cream with No Draining Needed

Tofu Cream with No Draining Needed

This is made from tofu, but tastes totally different! The puffed rice gives it a mild taste. I was making this for my child but I got addicted to it instead. You can also use this to decorate other dishes and treats.


Firm tofu
1 block
Puffed rice
about 30 g
Maple syrup (or use honey or jam)
3 tablespoons (reduce if the puffed rice is sweet)
Vanilla extract
To taste


1. Process the puffed rice in a food processor into a fine powder and transfer to a plate.
2. Blend firm tofu and maple syrup in the food processor, add the powdered ponsen and continue blending until it's smooth and creamy.
3. You can use this cream for decorating. The amount of ponsen is just approximate. Add enough so that the cream is the taste and consistency you want.
4. You can make this with silken tofu too, but the cream will be very soft. If you want to use the cream for decorating, I recommend firm tofu. If you use soft silken tofu, you can use a stick blender.

Story Behind this Recipe

When my child's allergic reactions were very bad, I made this using easy-to-obtain ingredients while referring to a book on macrobiotics.
