Chia parfait with granola and blueberry tofu creme

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time --
Servings 2-4 portions
Soft (or silken) tofu is something of a magic ingredient when it comes to vegan cuisine. When used in cooking, it has a function in recipes similar to that of cream, and can be used as a binding agent or a substitute for cow's milk. It's just a matter of mixing it with ingredients to give it a bit of flavour. You can use it to make creamy desserts, flan, cakes, dips, quiche, in vegan cheesecake, or in a vegan b├ęchamel sauce. It also makes a great base for filling smoothies and adds a cool, creamy touch to chia pudding. Adding a bowl of chia pudding to your daily diet is an excellent way to boost your intake of fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids, and protein, and the variations are practically endless - this creative parfait is just one of so many ways to have it!
