Spicy tofu & brussels sprout fried rice

main meal / tofu

Here’s a combo that you might not think goes together, but it really does.  Brussels sprouts and fried rice?  Nah.  Oh, but YEAH. Many people aren’t keen on that stinky little vegetable, but I’m a huge fan of sprouts.  They’re usually only found as part of a roast dinner (hidden under the gravy), but after trying this recipe it’s clear that they’re a lot more versatile than just being a side dish.  One cup of […]

Tofu “eggs” benedict

breakfast / tofu

I think I’ve probably only ever had two or three eggs benedict meals ever before going vegan.  There was always the worry that when you order eggs at a café or restaurant they’re going to be too snotty and gross (EW), and that had forever put me off ordering them.  Plus being vegan, it’s now something that just isn’t on the wish list where brunch is concerned. Have no fear – tofu is here. It […]

Oh boy do I have an awesome recipe to share with you guys today.   I’ve always seen shakshuka online and out and about, and thought the dish itself looked awesome, but the whole egg idea… ughhhh, no thanks.  That’s where tofu is your best friend – reliable, versatile and tasty when cooked and spiced properly.  Cauldron organic original tofu works best in this recipe, and there is no need to squeeze out the excess […]

main meal / tofu

It was a long time coming, but the day had finally arrived.  I would try my hand at making vegan fish & chips, aka Tofush and chips. Not sure why I had put this off for so long – fear of failure?  Thinking it might look crap?  Might taste disgusting?  It’s tofu, I mean, how much like fish can tofu taste?!  Turns out quite a lot, if you wrap it in a nori sheet. I’ve […]

Balsamic tofu skewers

I love a good skewer, and I love Mediterranean veggies and tofu, so here we are. I used to make skewers by cutting up the ingredients, popping them on skewers, drizzling and grill.  Grilling however is a right royal pain.  Ain’t nobody got time to check and turn, check and turn, check and turn every five minutes. The solution?  Cook it all first and THEN stick it on skewers.  I know, genius. Of course feel free to use any […]

Pistachio crusted tofu

main meal / tofu

Spent a good hour in the kitchen the other night whipping up a vegan storm.  The tastiest part of the meal was the pistachio crusted tofu, and considering the ingredients list it didn’t take too long to prepare. With the tofu, pistachio and tahini combo, this recipe will ensure you’re well on your way to hitting your daily protein, iron and calcium recommended intake. And we like that kind of thing 🙂 There’s quite an ingredient list and takes some […]
