and man is it good! I finally found a source of mori nu tofu locally, so went ahead and made it up! It's Colleen Patrick Goudreu's recipe from Vegan Baking.....yum!

Sounds yum. I made a chocolate mousse with tofu a couple of weeks ago. You could kind of taste the tofu, I think it needed more cocoa powder, but it was good anyway.
I just made (and ate a piece of) my first vegan quiche! I love new cooking ventures. I made the caramelised onion quiche from Vegan Brunch which I have out from the library and am now probably going to buy.

I'm wondering if the mori nu tofu was more tasteless than the regular water packed....it has like no taste of soy at all. Hubby definately liked it too!
I have Vegan brunch, but haven't made the quiche.

I highly recommend the quiche! Caramelising the onions does take a bit of time but it is delicious. The texture of quiche is all there. Also I never liked the taste of egg so it is a bonus to me that this doesn't have that eggy taste a traditional quiche would.
So many of the recipes in Vegan Brunch look awesome. I am waiting until after Christmas to buy a couple of new cookbooks though because I think my mum might be leaning towards getting me a cookbook for Christmas.

I love cookbooks! I read them like others read novels! I used to like eggs, and I dont' actually care for tofu scambles. Hope the quiche would be different than that then?

I haven't tried a tofu scramble yet but the quiche didn't really seem very tofu-y either. The tofu is blended with cashews which gives it the nice soft quiche texture and the predominant flavour of it is definitely the caramelised onion.

TooAmy, I like your soup picture! Working with tofu isn't hard, you just need a good food processor, or maybe a good blender to incorporate it with whatever it's being mixed with. YOu want it nice, smooth, and creamy

I found the quiche quite easy to make. It was basically caramelise the onions, everything else whizzed in the blender, mix the onions and tofu mix together, and spread it into a pie crust. I made my own pie crust, which is pretty easy. Then it baked for 40 minutes and came out delicious.

Still tastes great, and no wateryness either.
