Okara Pie Shell Ingredients:

1 cup okara, packed

2-1/2 oz almonds, toasted

4 tablespoons butter or margarine

1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

Okara Pie Shell Preparation:

Place okara in 9-10 inch pie plate.  Cover with plastic wrap.  Place in microwave and cook on full power for 5 minutes.  Stir.  Cook another 5 minutes, uncovered.  Stir and cook another 3 minutes.

Mix okara with toasted and crumbled almonds.  Set aside.  In a glass pie plate, cook butter on full power for 30 seconds or until melted.  Add vanilla extract.

Stir okara into butter until well blended.  Press mixture firmly against bottom and sides of the pie plate.  Cook on full power for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes.  Let it cool.

Tofu Cheese Cake Ingredients:

2 tablespoons gelatine, unflavored

2/3 cup water

1/4 cup sugar

12 oz firm tofu, well drained

10 oz plain yogurt

3-1/2 oz cream cheese

Tofu Cheese Cake Preparation:

Empty two envelopes of gelatine into 2/3 cup of water; stir and leave for 10 minutes.  Dissolve gelatine mixture over low heat, stirring constantly.

Beat sugar, tofu, plain yogurt and cream cheese until smooth.  Pour dissolved gelatine into cream cheese mixture and beat for 30 seconds.  Pour into prepared okara pie shell.  Chill until firm, or refrigerate over night.

Arrange fruit slices on top (fresh kiwi fruits, strawberries, bananas, or oranges; canned pie fillings – blueberry or cherry).  Cut into wedges to serve.

    He comprado un frigorífico tipo americano Haier Modelo HRF628IF6 EN EL CORTE INGLÉS, en sustitución de un General Electric del año 1985, 29 años ha durado. Y ademas gozan del beneplácito de la mayoría de los países en sus exportaciones, cosa les favorecen y nos perjudican ya que por regla general todo lo que exportan son productos de baja calidad prejudicando gravemente a tejido Industrial de Nuestro país en nuestro caso. En 1.999, un extraordinario personaje llamado FRANS JAMRY, a quien conocía ya, me ofreció llevar la posventa de la línea blanca de la marca HAIER en España, pues estaba a punto de firmar un contrato con los chinos donde él sería en responsable de Europa.
