Best Blog Tips

These are very easy and super tasty. A welcome addition to "round up" any meal!

1/2 block tofu, drained
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion power 3/4 Tbsp. if you love onion flavor!
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
3/4 cup soy or rice milk
Salt to taste
1/2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1/2 tsp. tsp. turmeric
Olive oil
1/2 cup water

Drain and mash the tofu, add the rest of the ingredients and and form the croquettes, any size you like best.
In a skillet that is barely "painted" with olive oil drop the croquettes, let them set before you flip them.
Cook them till they are golden brown on both sides.

Yield: 10 medium sized croquettes, more if you make them small.

Don't Tear Down. . .

Oh, thank you +Kimmy the Vegan. They are really yummy! And you know, you can even slip them into bread, add a nice dressing and some lettuce and tomato, and make a sandwich with them. They are really tasty and versatile!
