Sweet Tofu and Papaya Dessert (Vegan)

Sweet tofu with  papaya

This is such a ridiculously easy recipe to make that I wondered should I even bother with writing out the recipe. From the rapturous murmurs of "Mmmm" and stomach rubbing afterwards from my husband its probably worth the small bother. Its very easy and great for hot weather and its suitable for vegetarians and vegans too. It can also be made ahead of time, in fact its better made a couple of days ahead so that the sweetness penetrates the tofu. In fact you couldn't ask for easier or more invigorating on a day where the sun beats down heavily and your limbs are feeling tired.
