Directions
1. 
Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Toast pecans in an even layer on a cookie sheet 8 minutes. Cool; coarsely chop the pecans and set aside.
2. 
Lower oven to 325 degrees F. Grease bottom of a 10-inch tube pan; line with parchment or waxed paper.
3. 
Place chocolate and the water in a microwavable bowl; microwave on high 1 to 2 minutes, until chocolate is melted, checking at 1-minute intervals. Stir until smooth, cool to lukewarm, then stir in oil; set aside.
4. 
In a food processor, pulse pecans, cocoa powder, and soy flour until pecans are finely ground. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks with cup sugar substitute on high speed with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Stir in melted chocolate, pecan mixture and ginger.
5. 
In another large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium-high speed with an electric mixer, until frothy. Gradually add remaining sugar substitute, beating until stiff peaks form. With a rubber spatula, fold one-third of the meringue into the yolk mixture to lighten; fold in the remaining meringue until just combined.
6. 
Pour batter evenly in prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Allow cake to cool 30 minutes before removing from pan.
7. 
To remove: Run a knife around the inner and outer rim of cake, place a wire rack or plate over pan, and invert. Remove pan, and peel off paper. Cool completely before cutting.
