Vegan Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Mousse from Oh My Veggies
From the chef Oh My Veggies: “Made with tofu, this Vegan Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Mousse does not taste like tofu at all, you can trust that I’m telling the truth. It has the flavor of dark chocolate with a hint of tartness from the pomegranate juice, but tofu? Nope, no tofu!”
