Walnut-Tofu Loaf

This loaf was super easy to make-it sounds like a lot, but it took under 30 minutes to prep using my food processor to chop the veggies; and, leaving it uncooked overnight in the fridge worked out well, as the flavors has more time to work into the tofu.  And leftovers?  Don’t […]
