    Thx for the recipe! What can I substitute for the Tofu. It does not work well with my digestive system.

      RE: substitution for tofu. You might try plain yogurt (Greek style if you can do dairy). If you are dairy-free, than any of the vegan type yogurts should work, but you’ll need to add a couple teaspoons or so of cornstarch in to help thicken it. I can’t give you exact measurements since I personally haven’t tried. I would start with a couple teaspoons as you process the ingredients together and then add a bit more if it seems to be too thin. I hope that works for you!
