  • 150g silken tofu
  • 45ml oat milk

  1. Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 180°C.

  2. Step 2

    Remove tops from the strawberries and place in a baking tray, cut side down. Bake in the oven for 10–15 minutes or until plump.

  3. Step 3

    Warm the oat milk in a saucepan over low heat until it begins to simmer. Pour it into a bowl over the chopped chocolate and stir. The liquid's residual heat will melt the chocolate. Add a pinch of salt.

  4. Step 4

    Blitz the silken tofu with the chocolate until it all comes together. Pour into a bowl and set aside to set at room temperature for half an hour.

  5. Step 5

    Place a spoonful of ganache on a serving plate. Top with roasted strawberries, slices of fresh strawberry for a pop of colour and freshness, fennel and a sprinkle of ground pink peppercorns.

Hot tip!

If you want to take this dish to the next level, sprinkle raw sugar over the ganache, and use a kitchen blowtorch to caramelise the sugar and form a brûlée!
