Hi,

I don't eat tofu because the research shows that tofu and other soy products that are not fermented contribute to early loss of memory (dementia). I do eat soy products that are fermented such as miso and tempeh.

The best tofu I've found is from clearspring - it's a firm silken and has no nasdty ingredients, especially soy isolates.

Those recipes sound lush, definately going to try once this relapse is over. Thanks for sharing :)

For the biscuit base, I'm going to look at some plain fat free digestive type biscuits and make my own base by hitting the biscuits into small crumbs and compacting into my tin. It shouild work.
