Look What's Cookin'

Tofu Neatballs

June 11th, 2012

Made with tofu, walnuts, spinach, garlic and onion, these little balls have all you need to get through your day.

This recipe was borrowed from Julie Jordan. She is the author of three cookbooks: Wings of Life, Cabbagetown Café Cookbook, and A Taste of Julie Jordan. Look for Wings of Life and Cabbagetown Café Cookbook at used book stores and booksales throughout the region. However,  you won't find this delicious recipe in any of her cookbooks. You'll have to stop in and try them!

Julie Jordan is a native of the Finger Lakes, having been born in Ithaca and growing up near Trumansburg. Somehow, having studied cooking at the Cordon Bleu in London and nutrition and  food science at Cornell University failed to turn Julie into a traditional cook. Just the opposite. She espoused using natural foods and gained such a following that, when she cooked for and later bought the Cabbagetown Café in the Collegetown section of Ithaca, cutomers would line up around the block, waiting to get in.

She now works as a consultant to companies and resorts and designed the vegetarian hot bar and the Wings of Life salad bar for Wegman's, the largest supermarket chain in the region.
