This makes for such an easy, delicious and satisfying lunch or a great go-to basic dinner when you simply cannot be bothered. You will be surprised how tasty the tofu becomes. It is unrecognisable when mixed with the sauce.
Make sure to find non GMO organic, silken tofu. I get mine from Organic Mojo in Pakington street, Geelong where I have been working lately.

Combine all cottage cheese ingredients in a bowl except for the tofu. Whisk until smooth.
