There are so many things I love about these, but one of the biggest is the clarity of the yogurt flavor. Choco Banana Tofu Panna Cotta. Have you ever had tofu in your dessert?

My mom never made it (she’s not a big fan of frying or fried foods), but every now and then we would go to the Korean market with my mom and she would get us an order of honey and peanut (which by the way, peanuts need to be crushed and sprinkled onto a lot more savory stuff) glazed Korean fried chicken in the prepared foods section and we would happily nosh on the package together because it was a big pile of sweet, sticky, crispy, rich, deliciousness.

Even if it was slightly soggy from steaming in the package on the way home, we didn’t care, it was just that good to us.
