I use soft tofu in place of eggs and milk when I make my pumpkin pie recipe. I blend it in a blender and then pour it into my pumpkin and sugar. Then add spices and put in the crust. And bake. I can't tell there's tofu in it at all. I used to hate tofu when I could recognize it, if you know what I mean. Now I'm okay with most things tofu.

Tofu scramble is good cuz it's nice and seasoned.

Use firm tofu in place of meat so it's not all squishy.

here's a yummy one i just invented!

in a blender or food processor:
2/3 cup silken tofu
1/2 cup canola oil

puree until very smooth and liquidy. Transfer to bowl.

add:
1/2 cup sucanat
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 teasp. vanilla extract
1 cup ww flour, or spelt flour
1 cup barley flour

mix quickly and thoroughly.

Add: 1 cup choc chips or vegan carob chips.


Spread into a rectangular loaf pan and bake at 350 - 375 (depending on your oven. i had to adjust as i watched it baking.)

Bake for 20 min or until dough is slightly darken (will not get golden b/c of no butter) and is slightly firm to touch. cool and slice. keep refrigerated.

I'm serious, the tofu works so well with the small amount of sucanat and it keeps the bars moist, slightly sweet and satisfying withou making you feel yucky. Try it. it's hard to explain how good they make you feel ....and happy tastebuds too!!!.
