Preheat oven to 450º. Stir together all the dry ingredients until well mixed. Cut in the applesauce with a pastry cutter or two butter knives, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the milk all at once and stir just until the dough clings together. Lightly flour the surface of a cutting board and knead the mixture a few strokes. *Pat or roll dough to about a 1" thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter, or the top of a drinking glass, dipping the edge into flour between each cut. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer biscuits onto it. Bake for 8-10 minutes or till the biscuits look golden. Serve warm. Makes about 8 biscuits.

*Note: You can also bake these as drop biscuits. Just drop large spoonfuls onto your baking sheet, leaving room for expanding in the oven.

3 12oz blocks of firm or extra firm tofu- drained well

1 med onion (finely chopped)

4 large garlic cloves (minced/garlic press)

1/2 cup red bell pepper (chopped) *optional

1 cup fresh asparagus (chopped)

2 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp smoked paprika

After draining the tofu, press between paper towels to remove additional moisture (you do want some moisture left to help incorporate the dry seasonings). Cube the tofu into small cubes. Toss all ingredients (except asparagus and mushrooms) and place in a pre-heated large non-stick skillet. Sauté until seasonings are incorporated, moisture has mostly evaporated and there is a bit of a crust on the tofu. Add asparagus and mushrooms and sauté until tender.
