Happy Friday friends!
I haven’t been this happy to see the weekend for a good 7 days or so. But alas it’s here, and I’m celebrating with what else than a roundup of fermented soy foods!
Seriously though, I haven’t done a roundup in a while, and I wanted to spread my love for tempeh recipes with those who may not even know how to pronounce it, let alone know what it is or what to do with it.
It’s tem-pay by the way! And yes, it is fermented soy beans, but that means it’s full of protein AND probiotics! Double win.
So I’m sharing some of the best ways to prepare tempeh and it’s vanilla cousin tofu that will seriously change your mind about plants. Lessgo!
Thai Collard Green Lettuce Wrap Recipe — A healthy vegan sandwich made with marinated tofu and a tangy peanut sauce.
Hello my good friends!
I’m back after my brief hiatus this week. My broski was in town so I spent some time with him while I could. That and I totally forgot to take any pictures of my meals, besides my morning tea from the lovely miss Heather.
But that’s okay, because I’m back and with a GIVEAWAY!
The lovely folks at Nasoya reached out to me about trying out their new line of Nasoya TofuBaked products. They are already marinated and baked, ready to be thrown into any salad or stir fry for those times when pouring a bowl of cereal or slapping some butter on bread is your next line of defense for “cooking dinner”.
Since I can never press the ish out of my tofu enough with my stack of cookbooks and giant cans of beans, I was so ready to try these out. They come in two flavors, Teriyaki or Sesame Ginger. I was more partial to the teriyaki since it seemed to have just a bit more flavor than the sesame.
I love sneaking in my LGV aka leafy green vegetables anyway I can, so why not have your wrap and LGV too!
And lesbehonest, I just wanted another excuse to make this peanut sauce. I could literally slap it on a washcloth and call it dinner. Literally.
And the whole meal takes about 5 minutes, which makes for a quick and easy lunch that will satisfy you much longer than a bowl of cheerios…or a washcloth.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Good morning friends! I wanted to start out the day with a great quote from the man we are celebrating today with, Martin Luther King, Jr. Along with many of his other moving words and speeches, this quote is pretty powerful.
It reminds me that even if you can’t see what the future holds or how things will pan out, keep faith in what you really want in life and it will come to you. That will help me through numerous things in my life right now and keeps me focused on the positive things life brings me.
This weekend was pretty low key (big surprise) especially since we got an unexpected foot of snow. Remember those Spring fever temps I was talking about earlier?
Yeah..along with my hopes and dreams of an early Spring they got buried by a foot of snow. A light dusting turned into a blizzard in no time and luckily I got my grocery shopping done early enough in the day before it got too bad out. What would have I done alone in the house all day with nothing to eat but a can of cranberry sauce and silken tofu?! Priorities people. Learn them.
