    Mitch, this tofu recipe is exactly the type of meal I look for when experimenting with more tofu dishes. I continually strive to add to add this unique protein to my menu ;o)

    Btw...Did you have a chance to take a look at the chocolate PB dulce de leche pie I posted lately? It's a real crowd pleaser. I get the feeling it might please you too ;o)

    I'll be making these burgers this week for sure...thanks for sharing this tasty recipe.

    Flavourful wishes,

      Glad you like it. I am out of the country at this moment but will certainly have a look at the chocolate PB dulce de leche pie when I return and am back to cooking more. Thanks for writing.
