I know there’s a stereotype about vegans eating tofu all the time, which many vegans don’t like and would like to put to rest. I, on the other hand, have to say that even after being vegan for eighteen years, I love tofu.
Yes, I eat a variety of plant-based proteins, but I have to say that tofu is still one of my favorites, even after all of these years.
One of the reasons that I love tofu so much is that it is so versatile. It can be made into pudding, vegan sour cream, tofu frittata, or these vegan nuggets. It takes on the flavors that you mix with it. So does this vegan eat a lot of tofu? You bet she does!
You may be wondering which tofu I like the best. I use silken occasionally, like if I want to make a dressing, pudding, or dip. But mainly I use firm or extra firm, and I always buy sprouted.
Sometimes I love to cook just for the sake of cooking – not to create a recipe, but just to cook and wing it in the kitchen. I love to use herbs and spices that I know will work well together, but not have to write it down.
Tofu scramble and tofu fries are just those types of wing it types of meals. It’s fun just to cook for the sake of cooking.
There are many times when I put off creating a recipe because I know that not only do I have to figure out amounts for ingredients, but I also have to take a ton of photographs. Not to mention cook the recipe more than once…
If you try these Baked Tofu Nuggets, let me know what you think! I would love to know if the tofu haters out there liked them!
