Tofu Tour: Mini Veggie Quiches

The next stop on our tour is mini tofu quiches! When choosing these recipes, my main goal has been variety. I want to show several ways one can enjoy tofu, even when one of the steps is to blend it into a purée. That’s not very appetizing to think of but bear with me because this recipe does not disappoint. I’d say these quiches are one of those recipes that you could set down in front of someone and they wouldn’t know the difference between it and the real deal.

To create these delicious masters of deception you’ll need…

Nutritional Yeast and Why You Should Eat It

You’ve heard of yeast. It makes bread rise and the world go ‘round, but have you heard of its rock star cousin nutritional yeast? Nutritional yeast is seriously underrated, especially considering that it does way more than just make bread fluffy. It’s nutritious, multi-purpose, and oh so delicious. Not to mention, it is likely the easiest and tastiest nutrient you could supplement to your diet.

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!

Tofu Tour: Vegan Roasted Veggie and Tofu Buddha Bowl

Tofu is one of those funny foods that everyone seems to say the same thing about. Usually, that thing is along the lines of, “it doesn’t really taste like anything.” While it’s true that plain tofu on its lonesome is pretty underwhelming, the same could be said about bread, and we find plenty of delicious ways to dress up and eat that. Unlike most bread, however, tofu is both a nutrient dense food and an excellent source of protein.

BumbleBars on Vashon Island

Back in 1995, Liz made the very first BumbleBar and pretty soon afterward, she and Glenn set up shop on Vashon Island near Seattle, producing and distributing bars. One of the stores where BumbleBars were available was a community staple called True Value. It’s since become an Ace Hardware, but current employee Katy Sassara reports that the store hasn’t lost any of its local warmth and still sells BumbleBars!

BumbleBar, Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, Vegetarian, Pescatarian, Organic Energy Bar, Energy Bar, Vashon, Vashon Island, Vashon Ace Hardware, Liz Ward, Glenn Ward, Elizabeth Ward

It’s always nice to connect with BumbleBar customers and distributors, but hearing from Katy was especially wonderful because she’s both! She reports some of her early memories of the store and the treat it was to visit and buy a BumbleBar.

As Vashon Island and its local Ace Hardware store hold a special place in our hearts, it was wonderful to read the answers Katy provided for some questions we had:

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. All the artist has to do is upload their work and RedBubble takes it from there.

It’s as great a service for independent artists as it is for us consumers. Where else are we going to find an abundant variety of snarky and adorable vegan t-shirts and stickers?

Oh, Kale Yes! 15 Minute Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips

Here’s a confession: I love chips. Especially salt and vinegar chips. I can’t even say that I finish a whole bag of chips in 2-3 days, because it’s more accurate to say I finish a bag of chips in however long an episode of Bob’s Burgers takes. Usually, if I’ve allowed myself to buy a bag of salt and vinegar chips, it’s opened and I’m eating it right as I get in the door. Full disclosure, I only wait that long now because I had to implement a rule that I’m not allowed to start eating them in THE CAR RIDE HOME anymore.
