Vegan Journey Starts Here: The Art of Tofu

Vegan Journey Starts Here

Our vegan journey began after my husbands heart attack. We agree that vegan meal plans are the heart healthy choice.

Fortunately I have vegan cook books and vegan friends to help our transition.

Eating vegan foods at eating places and at friends inspire me to get creative in my own kitchen. Tofu is one of my favorite things to experiment with because I think it is so versatile. From eating it in stir fry or making peanut butter pie. Tofu is something that is always in my fridge. One of my first vegan cookbooks is a review book from Robert Rose Inc. It has good information about tofu besides recipes.

My Vegan Journey Starts Here

I’m all for expanding my horizon of knowledge so I requested 125 Best Vegan Recipes by Maxine Effenson Chuch & Beth Gurney for review a few years ago.

My Thoughts

The great things about this book is I can get creative by taking a marinade recipe for tofu and apply that to another tofu recipe. It is a whole new recipe to prepare.

The recipes are not time consuming either as the book was written for busy moms in mind.
