    Any recommendations for Tofu substitution ?

    • Diced chicken or turkey for meat, fish like salmon or tuna, or diced vegetables.

    What frozen kosher yeast rolls are there?

    • i would love to know too as i have to make it all dough from scratch.

      • I think any dough would work from challah to pizza dough. It would be different of course so up to you if you want it chewier or fluffier. Then make either one and place small rolls in the muffins tins.

    • Based on where you are located there are a few out there and some kosher markets sell their own. You can even try frozen challah rolls of dough. Also some of the Rhodes breads are kosher – http://www.rhodesbread.com/

      Or you can try pizza dough and make your own dough balls.

    I made this for Shabbat lunch last week. I left out the chili peppers (my husband doesn’t like spicy) and the tofu. I don’t heat on Shabbat so we ate it at room temp and everyone loved it. My brain is already thinking how to change this depending on what I have around and if I’m in the States or in Israel. By the way I used the Rhodes rolls and it worked perfectly. You can take out as many as you need while they are still frozen and return the rest to the freezer. I also used frozen spinach (didn’t have time to check fresh) and that worked too.
