    That's like our family's recipe. Some of the relatives are vegan and we make "FREE RANGE TOFURKEY" (my late husband's joke--he was so funny.) The recipe is much like this one. 

    Don't over bake it, is my advice. Tofu can get very dry and crumbly. It's best when moist. It's already cooked, so it doesn't have to be killed any more.
