Spicy Barbecue Tofu

Tofu tends to get a bad rap. If it's not prepared properly it can feel like eating an old sponge and taste of absolutely nothing. On the other hand, when treated well, tofu can be a scrumptious treat for the senses as well as powerful nourishment for the body.

I first fell in love with tofu through my local Chinese takeout. They have deep fried tofu with sauteed vegetables. Deep fried tofu has the perfect chewy exterior and pillowy soft center. It tastes of all the vegetables, oil and soy sauce from the wok.

I've experimented with cooking tofu at home. I don't really deep fry. But there are other great ways to prepare tofu as a main protein. I like to broil it. I use a classic meat eaters method to give it flavor. I brush it with a glaze before and mid cooking. It works brilliantly both in terms of flavor and texture.

Sandwich Love Vegan Style

As is evidenced by my many posts on them, I love sandwiches. A lot. Pretty much everything tastes better when in sandwich format. Don't believe me... try it. Take any food and stick it on a roll and I guarantee it will satisfy you better and taste great. It's also easier to eat. Hand-held is the way to go.

Here is a pictorial run down of some of great vegan sandwiches. They use uncommon sandwich ingredients, but taste way better than the typical meat and cheese kind.


Lightlife bologna style on a bagel. Two slices of the lightlife with pickle and roasted garlic hummus between.
Curry lentils and barley on a kaiser roll. Roll is buttered with hummus. Mix of lentils, barley, cauliflower, garlic and mustard greens fill out the sandwich.Recipe for curry lentils
Mexican rice on whole wheat bread. It's not much to look at. Kinda beige, but don't let that fool you. The flavors are plenty colorful. Bread is buttered with hummus before adding the rice mix. Recipe for rice mix.
