    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    I was quite surprised how wonderful these turned out! Obviously, I would never try to fool anyone that these were actual MEAT, but I think this is a wonderful meatless substitution to the old Italian favorite. These "meat" balls are great served over spaghetti in your favorite tomato sauce. And taste even better leftover the next day.

      Absolutely Amazing! I wish I could give this ten stars! Even our eight, four and three year old kids gobbled these meatballs up, no fight at all! My husband thought he did not like tofu until I started preparing it in different ways recently and he took one bite and said , "Wow, these are good"!!! I drained, pressed and then squeezed extra firm tofu and had no issues with the mixture. I think they formed better than traditional meatballs. YUM! Thank you for such a great recipe!!!

      I was unsuccessful with this. I think that I did not press the tofu enough as the final product was too wet to form into anything. I ended up adding cornbread mix and they turned into drop biscuits. Quite tasty, too. I also blended everything except the bread in my vitamix, which might have caused the sogginess to be more of a problem.

      Awesome!!!! This is the first tofu recipe that was not just edible for me, it actually tasted great! I used Easy, Speedy Spaghetti Sauce Easy, Speedy Spaghetti Sauce and after the "meatballs" were done I let it simmer for 30 minutes. The only thing I changed was to reduce the sesame oil by 1/3 to reduce the fat. Thanks for a great recipe Kozmic Blues!!!
