2 ts Marjoram
2 ts Thyme
1 ts Winter or summer savory
Salt and pepper to taste
1 ts Rosemary

1/4 c Soy sauce; or tamari
3 c Pepperidge Farm Herb

1/2 c Toasted sesame oil
1/4 c Soy sauce; or tamari (1/4 to
2 tb Miso
2 tb Orange juice
1 ts Mustard; of choice

Mash tofu or mix well with hands. Be sure that all of the lumps are out.
Line a 12 colander with wet cheesecloth over lapping the sides. Add the
mashed tofu to the cloth covered colander, press down and cover with the
overlapping sides. Place the whole thing in a large bowl. Cover the
cheesecloth with a plate that fits inside the colander and place a 5 pound
weight on the plate. Refrigerate and let sit for 2 to 3 hours.

When time is up, start the stuffing. Saute the onions, celery and mushrooms
in the 2 tablesoons sesame oil. When soft, add the garlic and all the rest
of the stuffing ingredients, except stuffing, mixing well. Stir and cook
for 5 minutes. Add herb stuffing and mix well.

Remove tofu from fridge and take off weight, plate and top of cheesecloth.
Hollow out tofu to within 1 inch of the sides and bottom, placing the tofu
in a bowl. Place the stuffing inside the shell and pack in firmly. Cover
with the remaining tofu and pat down firmly. Turn stuffed tofu onto a
greased baking sheet, flat side down. Gently press on sides of turkey to
achieve a more oval shape. If desired at this point, you may mold
drumsticks out of one pound of tofu, and place on each side of the turkey.

Mix up the basting mixture and baste tofu turkey with half of it. Cover the
turkey with foil, and bake at 400 degrees for about 1 hour.

Remove foil, baste with all the remaining mixture except a few tablespoons
and return to oven for 1 hour more, or until the turkey is golden. Remove
from oven and use rest of basting mix. Using at least 2 large spatulars,
move to a large plate. Serve with the gravy of your choice, if you wish,
and cranberry sauce.
