Special Diet

  • 200 g (7 oz) white chocolate, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 12 cardamom pods
  • 200 g (7 oz) silken tofu
  • 50 g (2 oz) caster sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • crème fraîche or natural yogurt, to serve
  • cocoa powder, for dusting

Put the chocolate and milk in a heatproof bowl and melt over a saucepan of gently simmering water. To release the cardamom seeds, crush the pods using a pestle and mortar. Discard the pods and crush the seeds finely.

Place the cardamom pods and tofu in a food processor with half of the sugar, and blend well to a smooth paste. Turn the mixture into a large bowl.

Whisk the egg white in a thoroughly clean bowl, until it forms peaks. Gradually whisk in the remaining sugar.

Beat the melted chocolate mixture into the tofu until completely combined. Using a large metal spoon, fold in the egg white. Spoon the mousse into small coffee cups or glasses and chill for at least 1 hour. Serve topped with spoonfuls of crème fraîche or yogurt and a light dusting of cocoa powder.
