Tofu, tofu, oh tofu. It might look boring at first but in reality, the blank slate of tofu offers the cook endless flavor possibilities! Because of this, having a few go-to marinade recipes in your back pocket gives you the power to turn this flavorless block of soybeans into a super delicious and protein packed meal.
Here are just three of all possible marinade recipes. Try them out as they are or play around and tweak them to your personal preference. Good thing is that they are quick and easy to put together so if you don’t like what you first test out, just try and try again.
This recipe is about as Pure Michigan as it gets: gooey fudge that melts in your mouth and rich chocolate coats your palette as you bite into this perfect plant-based fudge.
With only five ingredients, you are going to love this vegan DIY Mackinac Fudge. The texture is similar to fudge made with dairy and the flavor is phenomenal. Don’t worry, you will not be using those long paddles or folding your fudge for hours over marble. This recipe is straight from the double boiler to cool.
This month, I wanted to write about some health and wellness specifics that are super important. Recently, I re-read the book The Blue Zones by Dan Buettner, and I want to use some principles from his book to guide us through this post. Dan spent years doing research on five areas around the world where people are known to live exceptionally long, healthy lives. He discovered nine common patterns that we will begin to discuss throughout this post.
We all know this summer has been hot, hot, hot and if you are anything like me, you have been craving cool, refreshing treats often. I love to eat my favorite store-bought ice creams just as much as anyone but unfortunately, these ice creams quickly end up on the waistline and I don’t feel good about eating them nearly as often as I crave a treat. Enter nice cream. This is the solution to all of your ice cream cravings.
Hey, veg-friends! I’m Dr. Jamie and I’m super excited to be able to have this new place to contribute some inspiring, motivating, and educational content every month for VegMichigan supporters. I thought I would use this first month to introduce myself and write a bit about my personal mission.
We are all looking for that super simple yet super tasty recipe that is loved by everyone, no matter if they are vegan or not. This potato salad has got you covered.
Made from only six ingredients, this dish takes almost no time to make. Plus, with the popularity of vegan mayos, and how delicious they have become, no one will know this isn’t the same egg-based mayo they grew up with.
Millions of people around the world are rising up against police brutality and other acts of violence against people of color. Included are some actions people can take to help bring about racial justice and equity. There are many other things we can do; this list is just a start.
I do not profess to be an expert in issues of racial inequality. I would, however, like to speak to White vegans about the importance of expanding our activism. Haven’t we, as a vegan community, already learned how to see the destructive biases and injustices that lurk beneath beloved cultural institutions?
