Tofu Cream Cheese
Buy a block of tofu and that's exactly what you get: A quivering mass of compressed soy milk that's easy sliced into sauté-able, grill-able, and bake-able rectangles, but not remotely possible to spread on a bagel. Yet tofu cream cheese has almost an identical texture to the real stuff. How? According to Stuckey, soymilk-the base of tofu-is essentially processed in much the same way as cheese. The wet portions are separated from the solids, a coagulant is added, and the remaining mixture is blended with oil (typically vegetable) to create a smooth texture.
