so, i've been a vegan for nearly 5 months and i am loving it. still. i am amazed that i haven't completely caved at the sight of giant piece of cheese or a deliciously tempting what-a-chicken sandwich! i just haven't been willing to give up how good i feel. now, i know if you think like i did, you assume that vegan food is all rabbit food with a side sawdust like grains. and it is soooooo much more. it's freaking delicious. you can make just about anything vegan, seriously, i have been baking like it's my job. this is one of my most favorite and satisfying meals. it seriously puts takeout food to shame.
pick whatever vegetables you like. i use cabbage, snow peas, and sauteed kale.
i used udon noodles and a tablespoon of barley miso(sooo good for you) for flavor.
while noodles are cooking, brown up tofu in a little bit of safflower oil and good quality soy sauce(shoyu). once tofu, is browned, remove from pan. add another bit of oil and add cabbage and snow peas. cook until tender but still with some snap to them. add greens and tofu just to heat through. toss another tablespoon of soy sauce to coat and the tablespoon of miso. then just saute for another few seconds until miso is dissolved.
mix in noodles and...
taaaa-daaaa, yuuum. it's so satisfying. it feels like it's really bad for you, but it's totally not.
so, tell me? does being a vegan seem like crazy talk? could you do it? what do you think would be the hardest foods to give up?
