Mini Chocolate Tarts
A creamy chocolate tart that's low-fat and full of protein.
Anyone who has ever had a bad hair day or is the parent of a teenager knows about the therapeutic qualities of chocolate.
And now, science confirms what most of us have known all along: chocolate is good for us. According to 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life, a new book by Dave Grotto, R.D., cocoa has a higher antioxidant capacity than possibly any other food, including green tea, black tea, red wine and blueberries. However, it also comes packaged with cocoa butter and sugar, barring its entry into the health food category. That's why we've paired it with tofu—a low-fat food high in heart healthy phytoestrogens. These creamy, silky tarts are perfect not only for bad hair days but for Valentine's Day as well.
Sure, it sounds strange, but tofu makes these tarts creamy as well as healthful.
