Tofu Tour: Very Easy Vegan Curry

We’re exploring the different ways we can enjoy tofu and the next stop on the journey has a delightful kick. This was my first time making curry, and I was a little bit intimidated. I’ve heard talk of it from more sophisticated palates all my life, but I’m not entirely sure if I even really knew what it was until making it this weekend.

Curry is an all-encompassing term referencing a variety of recipes from the Indian subcontinent and South Asia. The linking factor is that all curry dishes feature a complicated mixture of herbs and spices that typically include hot chilies. There are dry curries out there, but our recipe is the saucy kind!

Custom Creative Vegan T-Shirts and More!

You know what’s great? Fun, custom t-shirts and stickers. Know what else is great? Independent artists. There’s this awesome site out there called RedBubble that allows artists of all styles and skill levels to put their work up for anyone to purchase. RedBubble does a great job of previewing the art on various products like t-shirts, stickers, phone cases, coin purses, and even clocks and coffee mugs to name a few.

Ingredient Highlight: Sea Salt

Salt has a pretty bad reputation. The American Heart Association has warned people against too much consumption because it is known to raise the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other fatal illnesses. However, not all salt is bad for you, just table salt. In fact, research has shown that sea salt, also known as organic or natural salt, has a number of health benefits. When natural salt is processed into table salt, it is heated up to 1200° Fahrenheit, completely altering the chemical composition and destroying all nutritional benefits. This is the kind of salt that the American Heart Association warns us about, but it is not the kind of salt that we use here at BumbleBar.
