2 tblsp non-dairy milk of choice (soya, rice, almond, other)
1/8 tsp salt
8 to 10 oz plain chocolate (without milk ingredient)
2-3 tablespoons agave or other sweetener (optional)
optional: extracts, flavourings or liqueurs
Melt the chocolate (either over a pan of water on a stove or in a microwave).
Put all ingredients into a food processor together and blend until super-smooth.
Pour into a pie crust or biscuit base as desired. Put in the fridge to chill. The filling gets firmer the longer it sits. (It’s firmer if you use firm tofu and more like mousse pie if you use silken tofu.)
Having tea at a friends, I was delighted to find that McVities ginger nuts are vegan, so I had one, or three.
Then on a trip to Lidl, I checked out theirs and it turns out that Lidl’s are vegan, too – does this mean that all ginger nut biscuits are vegan?
Lidl also have several dark choclolate bars which are vegan, including a tasty orange one and a raspberry one – both good. And their pretzels are vegan.
Also, Lotus biscuits are vegan, available in lots of supermarkets, and they often come with your coffee in cafes – so you can eat them! There are quite a few other brands of biscuit out there which are vegan – a survey of biscuits is required and will appear on this website soon…
