You were right. The tofu-based chocolate pudding is really good. I was wrong to publicly denigrate it, though I can explain how I erred. It was a simple misjudgment, a classic mistake – and one you immediately caught. Too few chocolate chips. Given, your instructions were vauge:
“literally, you blend the tofu, melt a bag of chocolate chips, and then blend that all together again until it’s really smooth and throw in some vanilla. then you let it sit in the fridge for two hours to set and then you serve it with berries. it’s delicious. ”
I didn’t trust you completely, so I only used 1/2 a loaf of tofu. With that change in your somewhat loose measurements, the “bag of chocolate chips” became 1 cup of chocolate chips. It was ok, but nothing to write home about. When you found out what I’d done you admitted that tofu pudding would always be tofu pudding; it would never fully lose that texture or flavor. However, you felt that with the right – and goodly – amount of chocolate chips it would be addictively good. I trust you when it comes to chocolate chips, so I gave it a second shot – this time with more chocolate chips. Now, I can’t say that I’m addicted, but I am convinced that this is a quality pudding. Thank you, Special Correspondent Ariella. You were right.
