Mixed Berry-Almond Gratin

How simple and delicious are berries topped with a rich custard and baked into a crusty dessert (or breakfast) gratin. No one will ever guess that you've replaced much of the butter in traditional almond cream with tofu.

Serves 6

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 60 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, (1 1/4 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar, or
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup firm silken low-fat tofu
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 3 cups mixed berries, such as raspberries, blackberries and blueberries
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 1-quart gratin dish or a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

Spread almonds in a shallow baking pan and bake until light golden and fragrant, 4 to 6 minutes. Let cool.

Step 3

Place sugar (or Splenda), flour, salt and almonds in a food processor; process until finely ground. Add egg, tofu, butter and almond extract; process until smooth.

Step 4

Spread berries evenly in the prepared gratin dish. Scrape the almond mixture over the top, spreading evenly.

Step 5

Bake the gratin until light golden and set, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool for at least 20 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.
