Number of Servings: 4


    36 ounces firm tofu , mashed
    2 tablespoons peanut butter
    3 tablespoons Braggs liquid aminos
    8 scallions , chopped
    1 green pepper , diced
    1 1/2 cups mushrooms , chopped
    1/4 cup water chestnuts , diced

    1 1/2 cups juice , see note
    1/4 cup cider vinegar
    1/4 cup Braggs liquid aminos
    1 garlic clove , minced
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    2 tablespoons cold water


-Preheat oven to 375.
-In a large bowl mix all dumpling ingredients. Shape into 2 dozen 2-in balls and place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed generously with non-stick cooking spray.
-Bake at 375F for 45 minutes or until golden and firm.
-Combine all the sauce ingredients except corn starch and cold water in a saucepan. Bring to boil. Dissolve the cornstarch in the cold water and then stir in and simmer. Continue to stir until thickened and clear. Pour over dumplings and serve immediately.
-Can serve with rice and steamed veggies.
-Makes four generous servings (6 meatballs in a serving)

-For the juice: You can use orange, pineapple, or apple (or a combination) I use straight pineapple juice.
-The tofu should be firm or extra firm and water-packed. Silken tofu is too soft for the meatballs to keep their shape.
-Braggs Liquid Aminos: can be found at a health food store. Its a "healthy" version of soy sauce and is zero calories
