“This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes. Isa recommends serving this with her recipes Unfried Fried Rice & Five-Spice Delicata Squash which can be found in her book. I made these for some non vegan friends who were weary of tofu but they said these were amazing!! This recipe is very easy & the result is cool & crisp on the outside while warm & sweet on the inside. YUM!!”
