Tree Hugging Twig Eaters Unite

To start things off, let me just say..."I Love Meat". I absolutely love meat. A rare piece of Prime Rib, with more fat than meat, sitting there in its own blood, with a big dollop of horseradish, and a baked potato with butter and sour cream, oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Driving two hours to find a church out in the middle of a cornfield in Indiana on a Sunday, to find the best all you can eat fried chicken dinner in the world, is my glory.
For Lent, I have decided to make the sacrifice of giving up all meat & animal biproducts. Which means, no milk,no cheese, no eggs, no fish on Fridays...and NO CAKE going into my belly for 40 days and 40 nights.

This blog is being created to share a wealth of meat alternatives and vegetarian recipes that are very tasty and definitely worth preparing, even if you just want to be a vegetarian once in awhile.

This recipe is for Rinotta which is a cashew tofu filling, which you can use as a replacement for meat on a sandwich or stuff into manicotti shells, or...just eat with a spoon.
Thank you
for posting this.

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup chopped garlic (~1 bulb)

1 cup soy milk

1/4 cup white flour

2 1/2 cup cashews

3/4 cup nutritional yeast

1 bunch of parsley

2 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp dry mustard

1 T salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tsp onion powder

juice of 1 lemon (~1/3 cup)

2 T olive oil or soy milk

2 lbs drained tofu.
(makes a bucketful, yo)
Step 1
Sauté garlic in olive oil until slightly brown. Whisk in soy milk. Simmer and whisk in flour to form a roux. Yow.

Step 2
Combine these ingredients along with roux in food processor. Now you've got an absolutely vile overpowering muck. It would be unwise of you to spread this on your pizza just yet, which is why I strongly recommend you proceed to step 3..

Step 3
Add olive oil or soy milk to desired consistency. Put tofu in large bowl and combine all ingredients until well mixed.
