"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
This is seriously addicting and the best tofu I've ever had. It doesn't last very long around my house. I just eat it hot out of the oven, but it's just as good cold, on salads, as a sandwich filler or salad topper. One of the hardest things when I started transitioning to vegan was making sure my body felt comfortable with enough protein. Keeping this around makes it super easy and tasty. Plus it keeps for a long time in the fridge. I'd recommend making big batches and freezing some.
