Vegan tofu balls

1/2 cup firm tofu, mashed
1/4 cup flour
1/2 Tablespoon tahini
1 Tablespoon tamari
2-3 Tablespoons minced fresh parsley (or 2 teaspoons dried)
1 small onion, minced
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup flour (to coat the tofu balls)
2 Tablespoons olive oil

Mix everything together except for the flour used for coating the tofu balls and olive oil. Put the flour in a separate bowl. Roll 1/2 tablespoon of the tofu mix and then coat it with the flour. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the tofu balls until they are golden brown all over.

There is another recipe very similar to this one in the same cookbook. The differences: instead of 1/4 cup of flour in the tofu mix, use 1/2 cup flour, 1 tablespoon tahini, 2 tablespoons tamari, 1/2 small onion and 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard. Obviously this is a recipe that you can change things to suit your tastes.
