The hardest part about this recipe is waiting for all the flavors to meld. I let it sit 24 hrs, and when I took a bite--it was worth the wait. A truly great recipe and one that will go in my p...

I used firm tofu and didn't drain it, and this was still a great recipe! It reminds me more of Toby's Tofu Pate than eggless salad, but it is at a fraction of the cost- which I love! I added som...

This was my first time delving into a tofu recipe. Maybe it was just me, but I thought this was awful! I threw it out.

Delicious! I was skeptical while mixing up this recipe, But, much to my surprise it was fantastic! I stuffed it into a whole wheat pita & topped it off with broccoli-sprouts. Great!
