Tofu and Kale Spanakopita

This recipe is from the cookbook Vegan Planet by Robin Robertson.

Recipe: see page 386 of Vegan Planet.
Traditional spanakopita is a Greek dish consisting of spinach, feta cheese, and phyllo pastry dough. In this veganized recipe, the feta is replaced with tofu and lemon juice, and the spinach is replaced with kale.

The taste was kind of bland. Normally that wouldn't bother me as long as the dish is healthy or low calorie or low sodium, but the calorie count was high from the phyllo and olive oil. But still, it was kind of fun making this. I've never used phyllo pastry dough before, or made spanakopita.

Ingredients: kale, firm tofu, phyllo pastry, yellow onion, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, nutmeg.
