I'm in Maryland and craving crabcakes with summer upon us, so I got out my can of Old Bay seasoning and made a mock crab cake with tofu instead of crab meat, a veg*n mayo, and pan fried them just like the real thing. All in all, not a bad substitute, except I can't read...put in two tbsp. of Old Bay instead of two tsp. A little salty in the end, but good.

What are some of your fav. substitutes using tofu?

i make mock ricotta and it's pretty good. the recipe is from the american vegetarian cookbook from the fit for life kitchen.

1 lb firm tofu

1/3 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp seasoned salt or ground rock salt ( i use regular salt, there is a low sodium kind)

1/4 tsp salt free seasoning (i use mrs. dash)

place 3/4 tofu in blender w/ remaining ingredients. blend until thick and smooth. mash the remaining tofu into the blended mixture.

this is good in lasagna, or shells. i keep it cold and use it over spiral pasta w/ sauce.
