This is a great vegan, vegetarian, semi organic recipe. A chilled double chocolate torte by Oh She Glows. I followed her recipe 90% of the way but made a few substitutions. We had to bring a dessert to a friends house for dinner and I had been waiting to make this torte. There is a secret ingredient, can you guess? Don't peek. You'll never guess it. Our dinner friends couldn't.
I'm not going to re type the recipe. You can check out the site here. I highly recommend it - lots of great food and fitness stuff. Great blog! So I didn't have spelt flour so used regular whole wheat & white (we ran out of whole wheat). I also didn't have arrowroot powder so used cornstarch. I think it came out well. The secret ingredient? Avocados! It would have been vegan if I used vegan chocolate chips except those things are $6 for a bag. Sorry but for me, not worth it. I used Ghirardelli semi sweet on sale. Some of my ingredients were organic as that's what we have on hand; some were not like cocoa powder.
This torte tasted pretty great! I'm not sure what I was expecting but it was very chocolaty without being heavy. It also had a strong peanut butter taste despite only have 1 tbsp in the entire recipe. You could taste the avocados if you tried really hard. You could taste them more as it warmed up. I put 3 avocados in this thing! I definitely recommend eating it chilled - not room temperature. Even 5-10 minutes out of the freezer makes a difference. Eat it almost frozen! I'm not sure I'd make it again for ourselves. Maybe for a pot luck or something so everyone could try it. Overall it was pretty great.
