This tastes so much like the real thing that my brother-in-law was shocked that I was eating it because he thought it was meat. When you freeze and then thaw the tofu it will easily crumble into chewy little meat like pieces. I will post the mushroom gravy recipe separately as well because it's awesome on it's own. I make that regularly and serve it on everything. Originally from Sundays at Moosewood, although it was passed to me from someone else. I don't have the original book to verify the recipe.
