Tufu and blueberry Brulee
Blueberry season approaches – hurrah!
1 tablespoon kirsch (optional)
225g fresh (or thawed frozen, or drained canned blueberries)
225g silken tofu
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
50g mixed nuts, lightly toasted
100g demerara sugar
If using kirsch, marinate half the blueberries in it overnight.
Put the tofu, maple syrup, vanilla extract and 100g of the blueberries in a bowl and blend until smooth
Reserve 8 blueberries, and divide the rest among the 4 ramekins. Top up with the tofu mixture. Sprinkle with the toasted mixed nuts and chill for an hour.
Meanwhile melt the sugar in a small pan. When dissolved and turned a caramel colour, pour a thin layer onto each ramekin. Chill again for an hour.
