PB & J S'mores Trifle
Suzy's original recipe created for the Legendary Lentil Festival Cook-Off, sponsored by USA Pulses. This is an impressive but easy dessert trifle incorporating nutritious US lentils and a whole can of chickpeas, including the liquid aquafaba. Aquafaba is the thick, gelatinous liquid that's drained from the chickpeas and is used as a vegan egg substitute.

Chocolate lentil layer

Pulse to combine, then continue to puree until smooth, scraping bowl as necessary. Remove mixture to medium size mixing bowl, set aside. Wash bowl and blade of food processor.
Peanut butter layer
  1. Place chickpeas, peanut butter, vanilla bean paste and kosher salt in to the bowl of food processor. Pulse to combine, scrape sides of bowl and continue to puree until smooth, creamy and looks similar to cookie dough. Set aside.
Aquafaba marshmallow fluff layer
  1. Pour reserved liquid from chickpeas into medium mixing bowl, add cream of tartar and vanilla bean paste. Using a hand mixer, whip until frothy. Slowly and gradually add granulated white sugar. Increase speed of mixer after sugar is incorporated and continue to whip until mixture looks glossy and holds a firm peak. Set aside
To assemble trifle
  1. Place 1 sleeve of graham crackers in a zip top plastic bag and crush them by hand in to bite size pieces. Pour evenly over the bottom of a trifle bowl.
  2. Spoon peanut butter mixture loosely and evenly over graham crackers.
  3. Pour Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread over peanut butter layer, spreading lightly to cover peanut butter.
  4. Place second sleeve of graham crackers in to zip top plastic bag and crush them by hand in to bite size pieces. Pour evenly over previous layer.
