    About this recipe: This makes a great vegan sandwich filling. You can replace the sunflower seeds with sesame seeds if you prefer. Try it on a toasted bagel with ripe tomato slices, or on granary bread with lettuce and onion.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 500g (1 1/4 lb) firm tofu
    • 4 tablespoons brown miso
    • 5 tablespoons tahini
    • 1/2 onion, minced
    • 1/2 carrot, minced
    • 3 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seeds

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. Press tofu to remove excess water: Place tofu on a flat surface. Cover with a cutting board, and place a cast iron frying pan or a similarly heavy object on top. Allow it to sit for about 30 minutes.
    2. Crumble tofu into a medium bowl. Mix in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.

    Tip:

    You can find brown miso paste in Japanese and Asian shops. Simply omit from the recipe if you aren't able to find any. A dash of soy sauce might be a nice substitution.

    Used different ingredients. This is a fabulous recipe! I even forgot to buy tahini and decided to substitute peanut butter, and that tasted great too. It's kind of a weird combination, but it works. Try it! - 24 Jul 2008

    Used different ingredients. Oh, this is so good! I used red miso and no onion because of my husband but otherwise no changes. I'm not a vegetarian, just trying to get more soy and healthier protein. I highly recommend this to anyone trying to cut meat consumption as it is so tasty! - 24 Jul 2008

    I needed to amend my first review. I rated this 3 stars the first time, but after letting the flavours blend overnight I would give it a 4. It was fantastic the second day--much better than the day it was made. - 24 Jul 2008
