Tofu-riffic #veganrecipehour

Standard

Once again, many thanks for your participation in #veganrecipehour.

We had another overwhelmingly amazing response and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for joining us! Im especially pleased as there were loads of photos and conversations between you lovely peeps! One went on until gone 11pm!! 9you know who you are lol) this is a pretty short looking round up this time but, its spread accross here and #pintrest also, of course you just need to search #tofu or #veganrecipehour on twitter and you have every interaction literally at your fingertips!!

The topic of conversation this time was #tofu. This was chosen as its a bit of a stereotypical #vegan #vegetarian ingredient. Its also a pretty bland, funny looking unwelcoming substance to the uninitiated! BUT… as we have all proved, its amazingly versatile, useful, inexpensive and, once seasoned and cooked properly, very very tasty! its also super healthy!

So, lets get to the recipies!!

Check out this ‘nutty crusted Tofu‘ from’coconut and berries’. You can also find many other wonderful Tofu ideas! Take a look! eg Pesto-Ricotta Tofu Omelettes with Cherry Tomato,

Soy Sesame silken soba noodles sound pretty special from @veganupnorth

 

We had some great useful tips:

Dorset Vegan@Dorset_vegan

This is my fave tip for tofu – freeze in packet and then defrost and drain – gives chewier texture.

Damian Copeland@DocDamo

Freezing tofu opens up the texture which makes it perfect for marinades – always looking for new marinade ideas btw!

Mr Fullbellies@BRYNFISH 

mash some #tofu, lemon juice, garlic salt and sauted leeks bake in a w/meal pastry base 30min. Hello #vegan quiche

 

Every had trouble with pressing tofu? Its a bit tricky at times isnt it! Also, if you dont know you have to do it, it can be a bit of a distaster! this is a lovely and useful guide…plus a beautiful recipe!
