  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 package extra firm tofu, crumbled

  5. Stir in crumbled tofu, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

  7. Unroll the filo pastry and cut it into 3-inch strips.
  8. Brush each strip with olive oil.
  9. Place a spoonful of filling onto the end of each strip.

  11. Continue folding until you reach the end of the strip, forming a triangle-shaped pastry.
