    2 1/2   c            Tofu -- crumbled
    8       c             -- water; boiling
    2       tb           Olive oil
    1       lg           Onion -- chopped
    5                    Garlic cloves -- minced
    1       t            Thyme
    1       t            Basil
      1/2   ts           Oregano
      1/4   ts           Celery seed
      1/8   ts           Cloves, ground
    2       c            Mushrooms -- sliced
    4       tb           Tamari
    8       oz           Whole wheat spaghetti
      1/4   c            Parsley -- minced
      1/2   c            Dry red wine
    Drop the tofu into a large kettle of boiling water.
    Bring the water back to a boil and cook for 1 minute.
    Line a colander with a clean dishtowel and drain the
   tofu in the colander. Rinse the tofu under cold water
   to cool it off for easier handling. Bring the edges of
   the towel together, twist the towel, and press the
   excess water out of the tofu. Continue pressing the
   tofu until it has a firm ground-beef-like texture,
   then set it aside.
    Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion,
   garlic, thyme, basil, oregano, celery seed and cloves.
    Saute over low heat until the onion is almost tender.
    Add the mushrooms and cook until they are done.
    Add the pressed tofu to the sauteed mixture. Stir in
   the tamari and mix well. Set the skillet aside while
   you prepare the spaghetti.
    Boil a large kettle of water and cook the spaghetti
   until it is tender. Drain the cooked spaghetti and add
   it to the skillet with the tofu mixture. Add the wine
   and the parsley; mix well.
    Serve with a big green salad.
