Tofu 101 with 20 Recipes!

If we at ecoRDN had a vegan donut for every time some clown proclaimed, “tofu? yuck! tofu is gross!” we’d never need to buy another vegan donut, ever again. In fact, we would have enough vegan donuts to open our own vegan donut shop, and sail into the dairy-free sunset, handing out donuts like kittens hand out cute concussions. Wow! That’s quite a few vegan donuts, because kittens are cute, and the sad reality among fu-phobes and soya naysayers is grim and misinformed.

Not all tofu is created equal.

The Great Aroma® Rice Cooker #CakeHack (with Recipe)

The Great Aroma® Rice Cooker #CakeHack (with Recipe)

Being plant-based in a carnivorous world is heavy. Have you ever looked at a rental property, opened the oven and wished you hadn’t? Who knows what was cooked in there to cause such a blackened lavarock mess at the bottom? No thanks! One instance in particular was our last rental, a studio in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan directly south of Spanish Harlem, the kitchen was not much bigger than a broom closet with no counter space. The biggest concern was the set up: the oven was butted-up directly against the outside wall, that seemed like a huge safety issue (fire hazard!!!). And the studio by stovetop alone got ridiculously hot in the summer. For people who like to cook and eat (especially cake) that was a real bummer, so we had to make-do and improvise.
