Better than Takeout Tofu

This recipe from “PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook” is not going to win any awards for creativity or taste, but it could win an award for a fast and easy lunch. It didn’t taste too bad. In fact, it’s a good basic starter recipe to which you could add your own herbs and spices and whatever else to make it your own. I took the original recipe and made it my own below. I just wish I’d had some scallions to toss on top. I know it’s pretty odd to say, but its taste was oddly reminiscent of chicken noodle soup. I’ll definitely remember this recipe the next time I have plenty of tofu but not much of anything else in the house.
