Veg*n Cottage Cheese Substitute

If you are Vegan or Lactose Intolerant you can easily make this 'Cottage Cheese' substitute for any recipe that calls for Cottage Cheese, including the Retro Veg*n Not-Meat-Loaf below!


16 oz (450grams) Firm Tofu Block, plain flavor, drained
2/3 cup Vegan Mayonnaise (I used Vegannaise but any available to you will do)
2 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Salt (just a tiny pinch) 

1) Cut tofu into large chunks
2) Place in saucepan and cover with water
3) Bring to boil on stove. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes
4) Drain well
5) Chill, uncovered in the refrigerator until cool enough to handle
6) Once cool, crumble and place in bowl with remaining ingredients
7) Mash until mixture has a fine, grainy texture like Cottage Cheese
8) Put back in refrigerator and chill overnight before serving or using, to allow flavors to blend
