I have been experimenting with a lot of flours and proteins lately, but haven’t really touched upon the vegan world. I had some tofu in the house…. I also had some ground turkey… Usually with the ground turkey, I bulk cook meatballs for the week. So I thought, what could I make using the tofu, rather than my boring way of cooking it in a pan with a ton of veggies and over rice! (lol)
Meatloaf came to mind…. and my mind began to wonder. Here is what I came up with!
Meat(less) Tofu Bake
1 entire package of Firm Tofu
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
2 “flax” eggs (see notes below)
1 cup spinach (you can always use different vegetables or add more)
Sea Salt and additional pepper
***Notes: To make a flax egg, combine 1 tablespoon ground flax with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes to become paste like.***
Mix all ingredients and place into a greased bread pan. Bake at 350* for 30-35 minutes. Remove and let cool. Work you way around the loaf with a knife and slice. Remove with a little caution.
