Cheese Sauce


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Sauté onions, mushrooms, and red pepper together until the the mushrooms are sweated out and the onions are translucent.
  • Add the garlic halfway through cooking the onion mixture.
  • Add the frozen spinach to the pan with the onion mixture when it is done cooking so the residual heat will start to wilt the spinach.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir in the cooked vegetable mixture.
  • Ladle a few spoonfuls of this mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Place the tofu on top of the sauce in the baking dish and poke a bunch of holes in the tofu so that it will soak up more of the sauce.
  • Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the tofu.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Blend the sauce ingredients in the blender.
  • Pour the sauce over the tofu and vegetables.
  • Bake for another 20 minutes.
  • Serve over noodles, potatoes or rice.

Absolutely love the Outback Black Bread. I added some raisins in the batch I made this afternoon. Not needed, but my husband has fond memories of black bread in a can with raisins. Thank you for your weekly recipes. I usually make each one! Karen

Loved the sauce! I think I will make extra ‘cheese’ sauce next time. I will also cut the tofu into smaller pieces. The tofu did remind us of ricotta cheese.

Can you slice the tofu into thinner slices to be more like tofu chikun. Thinking of taking it to a church event.
