Tofu Lettuce Tomato Sandwich, a New Vegan Cookbook & a Giveaway

Tofu Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

There are some really good vegan cookbooks being published these days. What a relief. I remember the days when you were lucky to get a dry as dust burger when you were out. Now there’s all to play for. Award winning vegan street food pioneers David & Charlotte Bailey ‘s book: Fresh Vegan Kitchen, is one of the good ones. Their TLT or tofu lettuce tomato sandwich has completely won me over to the wonders of smoked tofu. I have a copy to giveaway for one lucky reader. You’ll find details near the end of the post.

Miso Marinated Tofu with Pasta's Last Stand

Dinner, Gluten Free, Pasta, Vegan | 7th January 2018 | By

Whenever I need to get supper on and I haven’t thought about what we’re going to eat, I inevitably turn to my Pasta’s Last Stand. It’s always delicious, I don’t need any special ingredients, but best of all, I don’t have to think about it. Normally I’d scatter a bit of cheese over the top, but as it’s Veganuary this month, I thought I’d ring the changes and scatter some miso marinated tofu over it instead.

Samurai Samphire Noodles with Miso Marinated Tofu

Samphire Noodles

We were walking along the North Cornish coast path last weekend when CT spotted a massive patch of rock samphire. We didn’t want to be greedy, but it seemed too good an opportunity to miss, so we picked enough to make a meal out of. This dish of samphire noodles with marinated tofu was the result.

Tofu Scramble and a Vegan Cookery Workshop

Tofu Scramble

I’ve heard a lot about tofu scramble over the last few months and I have to say, my inner sceptic wasn’t convinced. However, when I found out this vegan breakfast alternative to scrambled eggs was one of the recipes in the Vegan Toolkit Workshop, I thought I really ought to try it. I volunteered to make this particular dish and was of course completely won over.

Vegan Rice Bowl with Maple Tofu and Smoked Tomato Sauce

Vegan Rice Bowl

Bowls of grains topped with vegetables, protein and some sort of dressing are not only healthy but can be flavoursome and deeply comforting. This vegan rice bowl with its smoked tomato sauce is particularly good. It’s especially so when topped with tofu marinaded in a pure maple syrup dressing then fried in coconut oil. If you’re running out of ideas for #Veganuary, this is an excellent one to try.
