    I thought it was easy and yummy. My husband ate it but asked me not to make it again.

    Very good! This was my first time cooking with tofu and it was a good starter for me. I pureed the onion in my food processor as I am not a fan of chunky pieces of onion, it turned out very well. I also added 2 chopped hard boiled eggs which takes away the vegan aspect but it added what I thought it needed. Also I used 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne instead of the cumin, if you don't like too much spice I would stick to 1/4 teaspoon. Overall it was very good especially hot with melted cheddar in pita =]

    My family of three really enjoyed this last night; I was fairly surprised that my 13yo DS ate it at all, but he gobbled it right up. We ate it over mixed spring greens, but I'm sure it would make a really nice pita sandwich too! I think next time, I'd chill the mixture to let the flavors mingle.

    very tasty way to prepare tofu. was very fast, i pan fried in olive oil for a nice flavour. i think i would use red onion next time for not such a sour flavour. can't wait to make again!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
