White chocolate ginger torte

As soon as I saw this post, I was determined to try making a white chocolate torte. Unfortunately they stopped selling both the white chocolate buttons and the cream used!
I did find some white chocolate buttons from Alternative stores and decided I’d try it with them.

I tried them ‘raw’ and they were quite nice but did have a slightly ricey taste to them- definitely needed some vanilla. So, the recipe.

60g vegan margarine (vitalite)
150g ginger nut biscuits

200g vegan white chocolate drops
few drops vanilla essence
100ml oat dream cream (or any other vegan cream alternative)
50g silken tofu

First make the base by melting the margarine, crushing the ginger nuts and mixing together. Press into the bottom of the tin you’re using (I used a foil pie dish)
Melt the white chocolate drops in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. I decided that stirring lots was the best technique here as when I didn’t it seemed to stick to the bowl and stay solid.

Once melted take off the heat and quickly throw in the vanilla essence,  tofu and cream. It all seems like a big mess at this point so get in there with a hand blender and blend until beautiful and smooth and creamy.
Pour over the biscuit base and chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
