Chocolate Edamame Pie With Fresh Strawberries

No refined sugar, flour or oil!


Back in the 80s I made chocolate silken tofu pie. It was so easy and so delicious. Essentially melting vegan dark chocolate chips and blending them with the silken tofu, vanilla and some spices. Today I was craving a chocolate-y dessert so I decided to make my old favorite. But the only silken tofu I had in the fridge was edamame silken tofu from the Asian market. It is green, like edamame, but very mild flavored – even more mild than regular tofu – and very soft. So I blended it with my other ingredients and made an updated version of the classic pie. I smothered it in fresh strawberries I got at the farmers market yesterday – DELISH!

If you cannot find edamame silken tofu, then just get regular silken tofu and it will be fabulous!

Chocolate Edamame Pie With Fresh Strawberries

recipe from Lisa Rice's Kitchen Plantastic



1 cup nuts (I like half pecan and half walnut)

1 cup pitted medjool dates

1 tsp alcohol free vanilla (like TJ’s or Frontier) or vanilla bean powder

2-3 generous pinches of salt


1 package silken tofu

6 large, soft medjool dates

2 T peanut or smooth almond butter

1 14 oz pack of date-sweetened vegan dark chocolate chips (Hu brand)

1 tsp alcohol free vanilla (like TJ’s or Frontier) or vanilla bean powder

1 pint of fresh strawberries

1 T date syrup




Make the crust:

In a food processor, pulse the nuts and salt to break down slightly. Add the dates and vanilla and pulse until you have a fine crumble. Empty processor ingredients and press evenly into a pie pan coming up the sides about half way. No need to wash the bowl!

Melt your chips in a double boiler or microwave. In the food processor blend your silken tofu, dates, nut butter and vanilla until smooth. Add the melted chocolate and blend, scraping down the sides, until well mixed and smooth.

Pour mixture in to your prepared crust, cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.

Slice your strawberries and add to a bowl, drizzle the date syrup over the strawberries and stir to coat. When pie is ready, spread berries over top.
