Notes

Tofu Cream Cheese on Crackers, Sprinkled With Black Pepper, Served With Mesclun Salad From THE WILD VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK:

"This is the first mock cheese I ever created. I originally used it as a spread and then discovered it works as a cheese sauce (thickened with kudzu or arrowroot if desired) in cooked dishes. You can also use it in place of cream cheese, as a spread, and as an ingredient in other recipes."
