 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   10      ounces        silken soft tofu -- *
      1/4  cup           cocoa powder
    2      tablespoons   maple syrup -- to 4 tbs
    2      tablespoons   Grand Marnier -- to 3 tbs
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
                         strawberries
                         - or sliced fresh peaches
 
 * For best results, use the fresh (refrigerated) tofu, not aseptic-packed.
 
 Makes 1 1/2 cups.
 
 Drain the tofu in a fine-mesh strainer for 15 minutes.
 
 In a blender or food processor, puree the tofu until creamy, about 30 seconds.
 Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup,  Grand Marnier, and the vanilla extract.
 Blend thoroughly, scraping down the sides of the container. Blend until the
 mixture is extremely smooth.
 
 Transfer to a well-sealed container and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Keeps for
 up to three days.

 NOTES : “This rich, velvety topping has a lovely sheen and makes an elegant
 dessert when spooned over small whole strawberries.” [Lorna Sass]
 
 Alternatively, use this sauce over sliced fresh peaches, lowfat pound cake, or
 angel food cake. It can even be consumed alone, as a pudding.
