Vegan Calzone

'Cheesy' seasoned tofu mixture toasted inside a tortilla

You will need

Jumbo tortillas - I used 3
150G of firm tofu - pressed
1/4 cup of SEMI-dried tomatoes - diced
1 cup of fresh spinach, chopped
2 medium mushrooms, cut into chunks
5 fresh basil leaves, diced finely
4 cloves of garlic, minced
3/4 cup of mozarella melting cheezly
4 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons of massels chicken stock powder (or vegetable stock powder)
1/2 cup of diced onion
3 tablespoons of oil from semi dried tomato container
1 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon of pepper
3 tablespoons of corn flour
oil for frying

sweat onion and garlic in frying pan until translucent, add everything but cheezly, cornflour and tofu and cook for a few more minutes.
Crumble tofu into pan and add 3/4 of the cheezly, keeping the rest for the tortilla, add cornflour
Fry for a few more minutes until hot.
lay tortillas out on a flat base - gently sprinkle with remaining cheezly and add tofu mixture to half of the tortilla, fold over in half.
Cook calzone. I found the most efficient way of doing this was on a toaster grill, but you could also do it in a pan being very careful, or in the oven.

Cut calzone into slices for ease of eating.
