Tofu Garlic Vegan Mayo

I don't currently have the luxury of a lot of ingredients lying around. The coronavirus has turned everything on its head. Still, I'm trying to find comfort in familiar hobbies like cooking and origami.

What I did have was half a package of silken firm tofu that needed to be used and a whole head of garlic that wasn't getting any younger. That is the inspiration for this recipe. That, and my love of all things creamy and garlicky.

Ingredients
1/2 package silken firm tofu, drained
8 cloves garlic, stems removed
1 habanero, deseeded
1 serrano
3 tbls olive oil
3 tbls white vinegar
1 tbl salt
1/2 can chick peas, drained and rinsed

Puree all ingredients in your food processor until a creamy mixture is the result.

It's great right away, but you can chill it in the fridge for a few hours to thicken and let the flavors coalesce.

This is extremely garlic forward and also hot from the chiles. Because the mayo is tofu based and tofu has no flavor of its own, the full on flavor …

Simplest Dessert Full of Flavor (Vegan)

This is the simplest, cheapest and best tasting dessert. It takes about 30 second to make and costs only pennies. It's also vegan and by extension vegetarian as well.

Ingredients
1 Slice Soft Style Whole Grain Bread (Like Stroehmans or Freihoffers or Wonder)
Peanut Butter
Chocolate Syrup

Spread the peanut butter on the bread. Swirl with chocolate syrup.

That's it. Eat and enjoy. It's very simple. It super quick to make and is quite delicious really. It really hits the spot when you want something sweet and rich and a little bit filling. The peanut butter adds some nice nutrition, but is also decadent.

Some interesting variations also come to mind. Strawberry or caramel syrup or any combination of the three. Other nut butters like almond or cashew or macadamia. You could also use a more desert like bread or even a bagel. Cinnamon swirl or raisin... the permutations are endless.

But the idea at it's core is to keep it very simple and still achieve a sweet dessert treat. Peanut butter and chocolate syrup on a humble piece of soft bread - it sounds too easy, but I love it and you will too.
