    Do you think you could form this into a sausage shape and then slice it??

      I haven’t tried… I think it would crumble apart.

    Greetibgs from the UK. It’s brilliant to have you back….. BIG thanks for the recipes, I am going to try this recipe out. I am not a huge fan of tofu but I’m hoping with all the additions it will transform. it.

    It would be great if you made a video of compilation recipes actually using the meat substitute, demonstrating its versatility,

    Thanks Anja XOXO

    This was so delicious, I used it as a taco filling on some warm corn tortillas topped with cilantro… this will go into my regular rotation! Also one of the fastest dinners I’ve ever cooked!

    Do you need any oil in the pan or is the liquid from the tofu sufficient to cook it all in?

    • Anja June 22, 2018 at 8:18 am - Reply

      I don’t use oil in my cooking.
