Vegan Chocolate Ganache Torte. A decadent, rich dessert that looks nearly too good to eat. These little tortes are so simple, and so delicious!
I mean really, has a vegan dessert ever looked so good? It feels ironic that the first recipe I post after launching my new, whole foods focussed, vegan food blog, is a rich, sugary dessert, but we’re trying to make veganism approachable right? And everyone needs this chocolate torte in their life, vegan or not!
To make vegan chocolate ganache, you just need to make sure you’re using dark chocolate, and substitute the regular heavy cream. In this case, canned coconut milk is the perfect ingredient. It’s thick and has a fat content that mimicks regular dairy cream, so it behaves in the same way. And trust me, the final product doesn’t taste at all like coconut. Canned coconut milk doesn’t have a strong flavour to it anyway, but as soon as it’s mixed with that much dark chocolate, it loses any hint it may have.
Once set in the fridge, you can cut into these little beauties and enjoy the rich, dark chocolate flavour coupled with a crispy biscuit base.
My favourite pairings with chocolate are berries and nuts, you just can’t go wrong. I also think a bit of orange zest stirred into this would be incredible… #futurerecipe? Planning in my head right now! I hope you guys enjoy these, and let me know if there’s any other desserts you’d like to see made vegan!
