Mori-Nu Tofu Giveaway *Chocolate Pudding included*

Pudding collage 

  Happy Thursday! Why is it happy, because the weekend is coming up! I am very happy to share a giveaway with you today that I know many of you would enjoy.


Last week I share with you how I made a most delicious chocolate pudding. I had little to do with it because it only required TWO ingredients. Tofu and a Low-Fat Pudding Mix. Sad I know right? No indeed not! For a new mom like me, I find that this type of preparation is ideal! I have recently started being in the kitchen now that the baby is getting older but in the evenings when I think about the baking I could be doing, I ignore it to work on chores I was not able to get done during the day.

Chocolate Pudding



Chocolate PUDDING comes in for the save! (Can I say this in a Bill Cosby voice?)


Mori-Nu Tofu has been one of my favorite products because they make the best vegan omelettes like this Portabella and Chorizo Omelette:

Or this breakfast sandwich:



Chorizo Tofu Scramble


Or the Tofu ricotta for this vegan lasagna.

Baby Bella Mushroom and Zucchini Lasagna
Or one of my personal favorites:

Sun-Dried Tomato and Leek Quiche

All in all, I have never really been one to use tofu in my desserts like my fellow friend Amber @ Almost Vegan. You should check out her Tofu desserts:

After making the chocolate pudding, I cannot WAIT to make another dessert using their tofu.For every 1/3 cup of chocolate pudding it is only 80 calories! Add berries and it is a complete dessert.


I also made their Vanilla Pudding and paired it with fresh blackberries. While it was flavorful with the perfect amount of vanilla, I really preferred the chocolate flavor.

Mori-Nu Mates Vanilla Pudding

Mori-Nu tofu is known for their asceptic packaging sealing its nutritional value in an airtight, shelf-based product. It also requires no refrigeration until opening and has a 12-month shelf-life! This is a perfect reason to stock up on tofu. Their creamy silken tofu is ideal for shakes and cream pies to sauces, soups, dips, and main dishes. Check out Mori-Nu ‘s website for other fantastic recipes!

Mori-Nu’s Mates Pudding Mixes were introduced in 1996, which makes me feel silly since I have only tasted them as of recent, are completely vegan, low-fat, and cholesterol-free. Does this entice you?

    I used to make a dairy-free lasagna, using a ricotta I’d make from tofu. (I haven’t made it in a while, due to my son’s soy allergy, but he doesn’t eat anything with tomatoes anyway, so I’m dying to try lasagna again!)

    Hi: I’ved liked both you and Mori Nu on Facebook, plus I’m now following you on Pinterest. I used Mori-Nu for the first time last week to make a spinach-tofu breakfast scramble, and I have since decided Mori-Nu will be a staple in my pantry. Thank you for the opportunity to win a nice prize package from them. P.S. Your quiches look divine, I think I’m going to try one of those very very soon.

    Oh gosh, I can’t even begin to tell you how much we like chocolate pudding made with tofu at our house. It is my son’s favorite dessert! (he is 10 and cannot have dairy).
    That is for sure our favorite way to have tofu, although I LOVE anything with tofu in it, so good!!

    I know it’s only open to your us readers, but those look yummy…all of it. I have yet to try and make a vegan omelette. Better get on that :)

  • http://www.shoutjoyfully.com/ Jane Harvester

    I like marinating firm tofu in a sweet hot pepper sauce (something like mango habanero) and then grilling it on skewers with vegetables on the grill, brushing the veg with more sauce. Mm!
