Lemon Cheesecake Mousse


1/2 of a 12.3 oz pkg light, firm silken-style tofu
4 oz reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel)
2 tsp finely shredded lemon peel
1 tbsp lemon juice
4 tsp dried egg whites*
1/4 c water
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c sugar
3 tbsp low-sugar strawberry preserves
1 c strawberries
fresh mint sprigs (optional)

*Note: If you like, you may use 2 pasteurized egg whites in place of the dried egg whites, omitting the 1/4 cup water.


Cut tofu into 1/2-inch slices; drain on paper towels. In food processor, combine tofu, cream cheese, lemon peel and lemon juice. Cover and process just until smooth. In large bowl, combine egg whites, the water and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer on medium-high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Slowly add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gently fold in tofu mixture. If desired, cover and chill for up to 2 hours. To serve, spoon half of the tofu mixture into dessert dishes. Add half of the strawberry preserves. Top with remaining tofu mixture and remaining preserves. Garnish with strawberries and, if desired, mint sprigs.

Makes 6 Servings.
