Easy Festive Bake

  • 1 large block tofu (300 g) OR 1 (10.1/2 oz) pkg. firm silken tofu
  • 3/4 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, cashews)
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch mixed with 4 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 packet dried onion soup mix (1.5 oz) **
  • 1.1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cups chopped mushrooms or 2 cans mushrooms drained
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp each oregano, ground cumin, sage, black pepper
  • 1.1/2 cups bread crumbs

In a blender (or food processor) blend until smooth tofu, nuts, cornstarch, soy sauce and onion soup mix (**I substitute McCormick's all vegetable bouillon cubes).
In a frying pan saute vegetables until onions are transparent. Stir in herbs and spices.
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix blender ingredients, cooked vegetables and bread crumbs together.
Press into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 deg F for 45 minutes. Let cool slightly. Turn loaf out and slice. Serve with vegetarian gravy. Also delicious cold with salad or as a sandwich filling.
