I wanted to show off ways to use tofu and this seemed like a great way! Taken from here.


  • 4 TBSP olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 cups onion, diced
  • salt
  • 2 cups mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper powder
  • 1 block of tofu, dried and crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • pepper
  • pasta sauce
  • pasta


1) Heat 1/2 the oil to medium heat in a medium skillet.

2) Add the onion and a bit of salt and cook for 3-5 minutes.

3) Raise the heat to high and add the mushrooms, garlic and red pepper powder and cook for 4-5 minutes.

4) Add the vegetables to a blender or food processor and blend a bit.

5) Add the tofu, egg, and 1/2 tsp salt and blend until combined.

6) Add the bread crumbs and mix until combined.

7) Add the black pepper and scrape out of the blender/food processor .

8) Make balls of about 1 inch and let sit for 2-8 hours (I went to work and came back and finished them off).

9) Heat the rest of the oil in a pan to medium heat and add the balls.

10) Heat until it they are browned, roll them over continue browning all around.

11) Add the sauce to a large pan and heat the tofuballs all the way though, about 15 minutes.

12) Serve with pasta.
