 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Frozen tofu
    1       sm           Onion
    6       oz           Potatoes
    1       sm           Carrot
      1/2   ts           Yeast extract
      2/3   c            Vegetable stock or water
      1/2   c            Whole wheat flour -ÿUSÿ
    2       tb           Whole wheat flour
    1       pn           Sea salt
    1       t            Baking powder
      1/8   c            Vegan margarine
                         Soymilk as required
    1       tb           Soy sauce
    1       tb           Water
    1       t            Cider vinegar
    1       tb           Vegetable oil
   Pour boiling water over the tofu, cover if possible,
   and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.
   Chop the onion.  Dice the potatoes and carrot into
   small pieces. Add the yeast extract to the stock or
   water and bring to the boil in a saucepan. Add the
   onions and potatoes, lower heat, and leave to simmer
   for 7-10 minutes.  Add the carrots and cook for a
   further 4-5 minutes.
   While the vegetables are cooking put the 1/2 cup flour
   in a bowl and mix in salt and baking powder.  Cut in
   the margarine, then pour in enough soy milk (about 2
   tablespoons) to make a soft dough. Divide the dough
   into four balls.
   Put the soy sauce, water, and vinegar into a small
   bowl. Drain the tofu and squeeze it gently to extract
   excess liquid. Cut it into small dice. Put the dice
   into the bowl with the soy sauce mixture and stir it
   round; the liquid should be absorbed rapidly by the
   Spread the 2 tablespoons flour on a plate and turn the
   tofu cubes in it. Heat the oil in a skillet and
   stir-fry the tofu cubes until lightly browned.
   Add the tofu cubes to the vegetable mixture and turn
   into an oven dish. Flatten the dough balls and place
   them on top. Place in a 435F (220C) Gas Mark 7 oven
   for 15 minutes and serve immediately.
