Has anyone here come up with copycat recipes for Amy's frozen meals such as her Golden Vegetables Enchiladas or Indian Mattar Tofu? I love these foods but would like to learn to prepare them or something close. Perhaps this would be a good thread if moved to the right spot. Eve

i love the Amy's enchilada sauce, i wish they would sell it in seperate jars like they now do for the pasta sauce.

i am not aware of any copyate recipes, but there is one here for making tofu Panir Style (which i assume is what the Indian Mattar Tofu is going for, that dish traditionally has panir (cheese) instead of tofu.) http://veganfeastkitchen.blogspot.com/2006/08/vegan-panir-paneer-indian-fresh-cheese.html the rest of the recipe is for Saag Panir, which was one of my favorite indian meals. i haven't had Amy's version, but I am sure you could look for a Mattar panir recipe and use the vegan panir and substituite soycremer in place of cream in the recipe.

just an idea...
