Tofu Nut Balls

READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Place oats and pecans in a blender or food processor and process until finely ground.
  • Remove to a large bowl.
  • Add garlic, sage, oregano, salt, pepper, and lemon juice to bowl.
  • Process tofu and water in blender (or processor) until smooth.
  • Add to bowl with other ingredients and stir until mixture holds firmly together.
  • Shape into 1.
  • 5 inch balls.
  • Heat a little bit of olive oil in a non-stick skillet and skillet fry balls until reaching the desired level of brownness on all sides.
  • Adding more oil if needed.
  • Remove to brown bags or newspaper covered paper towels.
  • Place in a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until done in the middle.
  • I sometimes skip this step and just flatten the balls slightly, so they will cook well on top of the stove.
  • Yields about 16 balls.
  • Serve over pasta cooked just al dente with some nice tomato sauce or as an appetizer.
