Crap. Now I probably have to apologize to Nasoya. I'm sorry Nasoya. I really do love Nasoya Silken Tofu. I used it in the pasta pie recipe I'm about to give you. I actually have used all their tofus except the new sprouted ones. I tried to track down Nasoya's new hummus but it was unavailable in the five stores that I checked. Speaking of five stores I take the fifth on Nayonnaise. It reminds me of that midwest sandwich spread - you know the one with the initials M.W. It might be good with vegan baloney, on vegan white bread if you dig that sort of thing. What do I know? Before we play, check out this interview I had on prime time.
Leftover Pasta Pie Made With Nasoya Silken Tofu
1 Prepared corn crust pie
1 hearty portion of leftover pasta (ours was made with rice pasta, peas, vine ripened tomato, Tofurkey and red onion)
vegan pesto (enough to cover bottom of pizza shell)
olive oil spray
1/4 C water
3 vine ripened tomatoes
1 clove of garlic minced
1 package Nasoya Silken Tofu (drained and pressed) crumbled
1 C Daiya Mozzarella
1 T oregano
1 tsp liquid smoke
Preheat oven according to corn pizza shell directions. Spread pesto on bottom of crust. Place on cookie sheet or pizza pan. Spray skillet with canola or olive oil, cook garlic for about 2 minutes, mix in pasta and add about 2 T of water, cook about 5 minutes, add crumbled tofu, and liquid smoke. Cook over medium heat for about 12 minutes. Add water or spray as needed. Slice tomatoes and place in concentric circles on pizza shell. Top with tofu mixture, sprinkle with Daiya and oregano. Cook according to pizza shell directions (12-15 minutes). Let sit.
