Say what you want about raw food, but this tofu replacement wins the day

Tofu, soy bean or bean curd, for many is a no go. It's also the item that many associate with a plant based diet. It is delicious in dishes fried or steamed because of it's ability to take on the flavor of the dish. Yet, soy is not everyone's go to food.
