Tofu 1...2...Done.

I thought I'd round out my Tofu 1-2-3 week with a dessert recipe. Since I'm near death, going to the store wasn't an option, so I made something with ingredients I had available. I went with the Fudge Brownies.



This turned out to be a very pudding-like brownie. Definitely not finger food. The gooey fudge was intensely rich and velvety. The recipe called for one cup maple syrup, and I used half maple syrup and half agave nectar. I also swirled a couple blops of blackberry jam into the pan, because I have yet to make a recipe in this book 100% true to the page. At least I wasn't a tester for this one. I have to say, while everything in the book is edible and tasty, I would like to see what Ms. Abrams can do outside of quick-and-easy vegan cooking. I would certainly recommend this for people who are new to vegan cooking, because the ingredients are all easy to come by, however; it's not very adventurous. It's definitely a good one to own if you have kids, since nothing is very spicy or weird. I'll give it three stars.
