Tofuture

I wanted to put some more basic recipes on my blog. Scrambled tofu is one of the first things that comes to mind and many people have asked me about this recipe. So here it finally is! It’s simple, nutritious and super delicious. I always make it this way and everybody loves this. It’s just so good, I can really crave this. I often eat this for lunch after coming back from a work out or when I’m just very hungry. There is not a lot that can top this! It’s perfect as a scrambled egg substitute, so if you crave scrambled egg, this is what you want to make. When I have left overs  (to be honest, this doesn’t happen a lot) I often add 2 big spoons of mayonnaise, mix it up and put it in a sandwich. Perfect for on the way.

Tofu / Pate

TOFU
There is/was this hype around these things called a tofu press. Everybody needed one. I never really bothered myself, but I did always wonder how restaurants and some recipes gotten these perfect cubes of tofu that do not turn into a scramble as soon as you put the in the pan. Especially in curries. It’s always so delicious. I know some people use books and all heavy things they have for hand to press the water out of the tofu, but that it’s just a little too much for me I guess, haha! Then a while ago I discovered the tofu from The Tofoo Co. This is the perfect tofu for curries, to use in a stir fry, to put in a sandwich and so many more recipes. They have a naked version and a smoked version. The smoked version is nice for salads, sandwiches and wraps, because in a stir fry everything will taste like this and I can tell you that, even though it’s yum, it’s a little too much to have a whole dish taste like it. I’m so happy to have discovered this brand and the good thing is they sell it at quite a lot of shops, even the smaller Tesco’s for example. Hooray!

PATE
So what do you put on your sandwich? This is a question I get asked quite a lot. It turns out, people have no inspiration, apart from cheese and meat, when it comes to sandwiches. There are so many things though, including this nice pate I found from Liberto. It’s not only vegan, but also organic, gluten-free and it’s super yum. It doesn’t have a very strong taste, but that makes it perfect to use it for a base in sandwiches or on some crackers in the evening, whilst watching a movie. It really is a perfect movie snack I must say! It is also a good snack before or after the gym, because it’s high in protein. So if you want to get some extra proteins in, you better get some crackers and spread away (I got some garlic pita bread sticks and this is a perfect combination). It’s also high in fibre and has absolutely no crap inside. Totally perfect! I got mine at Ocado and I think it’s definitely a good treat. Liberto has more things to offer than only this pate though. Check out their website to see what else they have.
