Tropical Coconut Tofu Salad with Papaya Guava Vinaigrette


Here’s an awesome way to get fresh fruit onto a salad that doesn’t feel out of place. It actually feels perfectly in place with warm ocean breezes and tropical drinks in your hand.

Sweet and Sour Tempeh


This recipe reminds me of trips to the mall we took as kids where we’d always get the greasy, fried, covered-in-sticky-sweet-sauce “Chinese food” the food court had to offer.

Cajun Grilled Tofu and Mushroom Pasta


A creamy Cajun alfredo sauce that’s delicious and vegan? Can it be possible?? This is probably the BEST creamy-style pasta sauce I’ve ever made.

Coconut Crusted Tofu with Mango Chutney


Sweet and savory are the best two words to describe this tasty treat. I’ve always been a fan of chutney with Indian food, but I thought it was go nicely on something else. Namely, these baked coconut tofu steaks. Nothing says “yum” like toasted coconut! The mango chutney can be made as spicy or as… Continue reading Coconut Crusted Tofu with Mango Chutney

Thai Summer Rolls and Peanut Satay Dipping Sauce


I am obsessed with Thai food. Like bad obsessed with it. I could literally eat it all day, every day. Especially those cold summer rolls with veggies and rice noodles inside with the peanut satay dipping sauce. I will also admit I fell off the wagon bad and stopped posting. I knew many people liked… Continue reading Thai Summer Rolls and Peanut Satay Dipping Sauce
