I think you might have oversold this one - it really doesn't taste much like the "real thing," although it does have potential as a tofu spread. I couldn't find the plum paste, so I used plum sauce. (I'm sure that wasn't quite right.) I did feel that the sage overpowered the other spices, and made it taste somewhat off. The texture is firm after the chilling time, and it does work well on crackers, but doesn't last much past then ... the remaining liquid starts to seep out. I was disappointed. However, if you *love* tofu, I suggest experimenting with the spices.
