It’s back to the grindstone around here with work – but I still have a new post for you tonight! First of all, I have had a few issues with my feed not updating, so for anyone who may have missed my last few posts, here are the most recent ones:
And guess what – I have another awesome product to tell you about here! I was contacted by the lovely people at Nasoya, who asked if I would review a few of their new products. Being the big tofu fan that I am, I happily agreed.
I know a lot of readers around the food blog world do not eat a lot of meat, so tofu is a fantastic protein alternative. It is so incredibly versatile, you can prepare it just like you would any meat for a delicious main dish, scramble it like eggs for breakfast, add some to salads for a little added bulk, and even blend it into desserts as a creamy egg replacer!
For those who would love to try tofu but don’t know what to do with it, Nasoya recently launched a campaign called Tofu U – a fun way to learn simple ways to prepare tofu. Enrolling at Tofu U is a great way to find new tofu recipes, and encourages you to share your love of tofu with friends and family – meat eaters included! When you take the pledge, you will receive emails with great recipes, coupons, and other fun ideas!
As a part of the Tofu U campaign, Nasoya sent me a few coupons to try some of their products – I chose their two newest addition to the product line. Organic vitamin fortified Tofu Plus, and organic sprouted tofu.
As someone who tries to eat as clean as possible, I try to buy only organic, non-gmo soy products – especially tofu. Nasoya has a great selection of organic products, none of which are genetically engineered.
Sprouted tofu is better still, as it is even less processed. I was really excited to see that Nasoya now makes sprouted tofu. I like to cut it up and add it to my salads!
The tofu plus is great as well. It is specifically designed to provide essential vitamins that are often hard to come by on a low-meat diet. Perfect for vegans and vegetarians!
Since I wasn’t sure I could get through a whole block of tofu alone before it went bad, I decided to make a tofu “egg”(-less) salad.
I just drained and pressed the tofu, chopped up some celery, and added oil, lemon juice, spices, salt and pepper. I used this as a sandwich filling for quick grab-n-go lunches, and a salad dressing and topping. I would post a recipe, but for one I don’t remember measurements, and you can get so many great, similar recipes by taking the pledge at Tofu U!
Open enrollment only goes until this Thursday December 1st! If you take the pledge before then, you enter for a chance to win $1000 as a part of the open enrollment contest. Tofu U will still be ‘in session’ after, but the contest ends thursday.
