We’ve perfected this sublime Tofu Cheesecake number that will be a hit with your loved ones. Best of all, you can put it together without breaking a sweat – zero baking skills required!
This humble rendition of the cheesecake began as one lone New York woman’s quest for a more nutritious, and healthier cheesecake – the same ones that bear the famous city’s name. Using what she studied in macrobiotics, Marcea published a cookbook which contained the “Tofu Cheesecake” recipe. That one recipe eventually sparked a mini-revolution across the city’s restaurants in the 1980s. It was almost forgotten until almost a decade later when a Japanese-American woman named Keiko won hearts and stomachs with her masterpiece, said to have been rated as the top with “no other coming a close second”.
For the base, we go traditional with a firm spread of finely crushed digestive biscuits and melted butter. Now, for a really luscious cheesecake with an exquisite ethereal texture, we combine the thickened cream, fresh Greek yoghurt, rich cream cheese chunks, icing sugar, good full squeeze of lemon, collagen-packed gelatin, and tofu, then make sure we give it a good blend.
In our recipe, we use Vitasoy Organic Sprouted Tofu to achieve the perfect wobbly consistency and creamy smoothness that just rolls off cleanly onto your spoon. It also has 25% more calcium content compared to other tofu brands, and because it’s sprouted it will offset the heaviness by helping with the digestion.
