"the cook who has a variety of herbs, spices, and dressings or sauces at his or her disposal, can make tofu entrees that are anything but bland. Having a supply of Litehouse dressings, dips, and herbs in my kitchen means that hundreds more unique tofu dishes are possible in my kitchen, and in yours." ~ Alaiyo Kiasi-Barnes
