Preheat the oven to 400F.
While the tofu is pressing, put the basil, tomatoes, oil, and lemon juice into your blender or food processor and pulse to get a chunky mix, then transfer to a large bowl. If you don't have a blender or food processor, just mince the basil and tomatoes as finely as you can, then transfer to the bowl along with the oil and lemon juice.
Crumble the pressed tofu into the bowl, and add the garlic powder and nutritional yeast. Mix well, then set aside.
On a floured surface, roll out the pastry sheets until they're ⅛" thick, then cut each one into 12 squares. A pizza cutter works great for this, but a butter knife will get the job done, too.
Place a generous two-tablespoon-sized dollop of the tofu ricotta into the center of each square, then cinch the opposite corners together to form little pastry packets, as pictured (see the video, if you need more of a visual). Press the corners together firmly, so you get a good seal (see notes).
Arrange onto two ungreased cookie sheets with plenty of space between the puffs, and bake for 14-16 minutes, until the pastry turns golden brown.
Tip! If you don't press the corners firmly enough, sometimes one will pop free during baking, but don't panic! While the puff is still warm, just tuck that rogue corner into the center, and no one needs to know.
