Tofu Custard Tart with Fresh Fruit

Once you’ve discovered how easy it is to use tofu as a custard in this dessert, you’ll want to make it all the time. Fresh vanilla bean masks the “soy” flavor of the tofu so all you get is the smooth, creamy texture. This version is topped with fresh mango and kiwi, but choose any favorite fruit that’s in season.
