    This is from Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious. She says the taste fools her kids into thinking they are eating fried cheese or chicken nuggets. I haven't tried this, but am posting recipes from the book upon request.

      I was the only one in our family who had tofu before. My husband and the kids were a bit weirded out by the texture of the tofu and weren%u2019t big fans of it. The average rating for our family was 2.3 stars. It took a lot of fresh spinach to get my ? cup puree and I would probably use peas if I made it again. I chopped up leftover nuggets and cooked them in my scrambled eggs with cheesy and it was pretty tasty.

      I am a southern girl, and was therefore raised on casseroles. However, I try not to eat or serve them unless at a family reunion. These tofu nuggets dipped in broccoli puree taste just like a bite of my grandmother's broccoli casserole. They were absolutely delicious and easy to make. I will definitely make them again.
