I’m late to the posting punch again tonight… I sort of felt like I just couldn’t find my brain today. I’m sure it’ll turn-up, though. /shrugs
Today an unrefined vegan totally inspired me with her Tofu Salad Sandwiches post. Yummmmmy! To be honest, I read the post just as I was struggling to “conjure” an idea for what to make my Elflings, who were also becoming a little ravenous. (Refer to above-mentioned suspicion that I had lost my brain.) When I looked through my pantry, I actually had just about everything the recipe asked for – everything but the Vegenaise. *gurgles*
What did I do? I made some. *happy dancing*Veggiennaise Veggiewitch-style 2 C oil* (olive is all I had today) 1 C coconut* milk (soy, almond) 2 tsp apple cider vinegar 1 Tbsp minced parsley* salt and pepper* to taste minced garlic* 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional) * = Organic
∴ In a blender, add milk and oil. Begin to blend at high speed to incorporate. While blending, slowly add apple cider vinegar until the emulsion begins to thicken. Add parsley, salt, pepper, garlic and nutritional yeast. Continue to blend until mixed through. All done. Use as you would any other mayonnaise.
My cute little “wasabi fish” was a lovely way to mash the garlic.
Here is the Tofu Salad an unrefined vegan inspired me to make. My Elflings loved it, and kept saying it was better than the regular “egg salad” we used to eat. Awwwwe! ♥Tofu Salad 1 block firm/extra firm tofu* (Soyganic) 1 chopped tomato* 2-3 chopped ribs celery* 1 handful minced parsley* ½ C chopped red pepper* ½ C chopped yellow pepper* 1 heaping soup-spoon veggiennaise salt and pepper* * = Organic
∴ Cut the tofu in half. Cube one half, and crumble the other half. Add everything to a bowl and stir to combine. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Serve on your favorite bread or crackers. Enjoy!
