This tasted great, though a tweak I would suggest is to simmer the fried parcels in the leftover sauce at the end, to add more colour and flavour to it. Alternatively, heat up the sauce to thicken it, then spread it on the tofu parcels. This vegan roast duck reminds me of the skin used in Peking Duck; it’d work really well (I think) as a vegan version of Peking Duck (I’ll cover the pancakes another time).
