    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    I found this recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks: "The Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook" Besides being a great dairy free recipe for "mac and cheese", the flavor of the dish from the miso, tofu and lemon is really unique. It's also a fun way to sneak tofu into the diets of non vegetarians. I do eat dairy, so I usually use skim milk and real cheese instead of the soy, but the original recipe from the book uses the non-dairy options.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, minced
    • 2 cups soymilk (can substitute skim milk)
    • 12 ounces soft tofu or 12 ounces silken tofu
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon white miso
    • 1 -2 dash hot sauce
    • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper (for a nice change, try using fresh ground white pepper)
    • 12 ounces rotini pasta (spiral shaped)
    • 1 cup grated soy cheese (can substitute cheddar or monteray jack cheese if you eat dairy)
    • 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      Lightly spray a 2 1/2 quart caserole dish with cooking spray.

      Heat oil in a pan over medium heat, and saute the onion until soft, about 5 minutes.

      Take a taste and adjust any of the seasonings as needed, then set aside.

      Cook rotini in a large pot of boiling salted water until just under al dente (I'd say about 6-7 minutes).

      Combine well.
