Happy Herbivore Blog

This is one of my favorite and oldest recipes. I created it three cities ago (that's how I keep track of time, based on where we were living) and I still love it as much today as I did back then. I'd wadger to say this was my first time using tofu as a sauce and now I'm always using tofu as a sauce. Funny how one dish can totally change your opinion about an ingredient, right ...
