If you've ever laid your hands upon a warm, flaky and slightly charred baked egg tart you'd have known bliss. The secret ingredient to having super creamy and luscious baked egg tarts is tofu! This recipe use pressed tofu same in many of our recipe and we always go for Vitasoy's sprouted pressed tofu because it has the least beany taste, which makes it perfect for being a plain canvas for making desserts and pastries! If you experience gas with beans then we are happy to share that Vitasoy tofu is made from sprouted non-gmo soybeans which means that they are easier on our digestive tracts! Yay to less embarrassing farting in public situations! So what are you waiting for? Try this recipe made by
