What do you think of when you hear the word “tofu”? Do you think of Japan? Do you think of vegetarians and vegans and all those who avoid meat and embrace tie dye?

 

Do you think of sad Thanksgivings with fake birds on the table? Would it blow your mind to think that the secret to my delicious, vegan-friendly, dairy-free, gluten-free decadent dark chocolate mousse is tofu?
