Tofu-Veggie Corn Cakes

These corn cakes are like little veggie omelets. Enjoy as a main dish, a side, or an appetizer.
  Mashed tofu 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs) (firmly packed)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm)
  Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
  Sea salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Corn meal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Grated zucchini 1 Cup (16 tbs) (firmly packed)
  Finely diced red bell pepper 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dried basil 1 Teaspoon
  Ground cumin 1 Teaspoon
  Ground turmeric 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon

1. Place the tofu, water, garlic baking powder, and salt in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Transfer to a medium bowl, add all the remaining ingredients except the oil, and mix well.

2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop heaping tablespoons of batter onto the hot skillet and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until brown on the bottom. Turn over and brown the other side. Remove the cakes to a platter and continue with the remaining batter. (In order to hold their shape without falling apart, the cakes must be small).

3. Serve the cakes hot or at room temperature.
