Well, okay, it wasnt horrible... just lacking flavour. Tonight I decided to test out this recipe, making it with tofu rather than pork. I followed the recipe exactly except for two things. One being tofu in place of pork and the other being 1 tbsp of soy milk and just over 1/4 tsp egg replacer powder in place of the egg. Oh and I baked them for about 35 minutes on 350F rather than the original cooking instructions.
I liked this recipe. I did. It just needed something more. In the future, Id double all the spices no doubt. And I think subbing some nutritional yeast in place of a portion of the panko would give it that extra boost.
On the other hand... what I served with the tofu was definitly NOT a fail. Mashed potatoes made with soy milk and earth balance for the starch. And for a bit of extra protein I mashed together some chickpeas and tahini. Yum! (Oh... dont forget the veggies either!)
