  •  Milk (optional)
  • 2   tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Directions
1. 
Let tofu and feta cheese stand at room temperature while preparing the potatoes. Quarter potatoes. In a large saucepan cook potatoes and garlic, covered, in lightly salted boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender.
2. 
Meanwhile, place tofu in a blender container or food processor bowl. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Set aside.
