Rosemary Seasoned Tofu Balls – Vive le Vegan by Drenna Burton

I got this recipe from a book called Vive le Vegan by Drenna Burton, author of Everyday Vegan and eat, drink and be vegan. My sister from Colorado gave me this book for Christmas this past year. I have made many of her recipes and I have yet to find one I didn’t enjoy. Drenna Burton has a flare for vegan food. Her recipes are quick, fun and oh, so yummy.
