Try this festive dairyfree “cheese ball” on crackers and raw veggies, or use your imagination!
30 oz can fruit cocktail
1/2 C drained crushed pineapple
5 Tbsp Ultra Gel
1 pkg Mori-nu, firm or extra firm or 1 pkg water packed firm tofu, drained
1 pkg 4.0 oz Mori-nu vanilla instant pudding
8 oz Tofutti cream cheese
pecans (chopped, enough to coat the ball 1/2 C)
Drain the fruit cocktail well. Chop the fruit and drain well again. If using water packed tofu, drain tofu well also. When the fruit and tofu are well drained mix tofu and cream cheese in a heavy duty mixer or food processor. Slowly add dry pudding mix and the Ultra Gel. Stir in the drained fruit including the pineapple.
In about a quart size bowl, butter the inside and add some of the nuts in the bottom of the bowl. Add the mixture to the bowl and chill over night. When ready to remove from the bowl, turn upside down onto a plate. If the mixture will not slip out, use a thin spatula to gently remove. With your hands press some chopped pecans all over the ball. Chill until ready to eat.
