SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made this with Phyllo Dough instead of puff pastry because the Phyllo was so much cheaper.
I did 3 layers-about 5 sheets of phyllo dough, brushed lightly with oil in between sheets and tofu filling in between each layer.
It turned out wonderful!
I also used 1/2 vegetable broth and 1/2 soymilk for the liquid to make it a bit creamier. (1 cup each).
Delicious!
