      Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method


      2 lb Tofu
      8 c — water; boiling
      2 tb Oil
      1 c Onion — chopped
      4 Garlic cloves
      1/2 ts Thyme
      1 t Basil
      1/4 ts Celery seed
      1/2 ts Sage
      4 tb Tamari
      2 tb Tomato paste
      2 tb Nutritional yeast
      1/4 c — water

      Crumble the tofu and drop it into a large kettle of
      boiling water.

      Bring the water back to a boil and cook
      for 1 minute.

      Drain the tofu through a colander lined with a clean

      Run some cold water over the tofu to cool it off for
      easier handling. Twist the towel and press the tofu to
      expel the excess water. Continue pressing the tofu
      until it has a firm, ground-beef-like texture; then
      set it aside.

      Heat the oil in a large skillet.

      Add the onion,
      garlic, thyme, basil, celery seed, and sage. Saute
      until the onion is tender.

      Add the pressed tofu and saute, stirring
      occasionally, for 5-10 minutes more. Add the tamari,
      tomato paste, nutritional yeast and water.

      Mix well.

      Use this mix in casseroles, spaghetti sauces, chili,
      pizza toppings, etc. This freezes well and can be used
      in any recipe calling for ground beef.
