hello makotodori…you're funny or at least your comments are. i think what it's trying to say is to use 1 oz of silken tofu or (if it's easier for you to measure)…use 2 tablespoons of the silken tofu instead. have a good one.

For those who ARE willing to try this recipe, were you able to figure out what the "or 2 tablespoons" ingredient is?

Nice recipe. Skip the tofu. It is an estrogen mimicker and is definitely not for men, and it will screw up a woman's cycles. Perimenopausal women may have very heavy periods and tofu/soy can worsen that condition. Also, cooking spray is oil and most oils in the US are now GMO toxic where the plant was GMO'd to withstand heavy app's of herbicides and pesticides. Moreover, common oils (corn, vegetable, etc.) degrade in cooking, making them slightly toxic. Coconut oil and butter are better for cooking and have more nutrients. Use organic, minimally processed. Better yet, look for raw sweet butter. Pasteurization makes foods a bit toxic too.
Other than that, sounds good.
