Vegetarian Cooking… Try Something New for Breakfast

Next time you’re putting together a tofu scramble, try using soy flour instead of tofu. One-quarter cup of the dry flour has 10 grams of protein, 10 % of the daily requirement for calcium, 25% for iron, 14% for phosphorus and 30% for magnesium. I find that very impressive for something that is also quite tasty.

In a small cereal bowl, take a couple tablespoons of soy flour and add equal parts water. Mix it well with a fork. Add two raw eggs and mix well. Add a tablespoon of salsa and scramble that in. Cover the bowl with a small plate and microwave it for three-and-a-half minutes. When done, drizzle soy sauce on it. Serve with whole-wheat toast and fresh avocado slices.

What’s the Taste Difference Between Real Cream Cheese and Fake Cream Cheese Made From Tofu?

What’s the Taste Difference Between Real Cream Cheese and Fake Cream Cheese Made From Tofu? Honestly, when it comes to cheesecake… a big difference. I bought some Tofutti brand cream cheese before Thanksgiving because I wanted to make my award winning (brag, brag) Acorn Cheesecake and I thought it was time I tried making it dairy free. When I got the Tofutti cream cheese home I tasted it and was impressed with the flavor, thinking it would be perfect for the acorn onion dip I make. But it just didn’t cut it flavor wise for the cheesecake. It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t have the rich flavor of a real cheesecake. But I do look forward to trying Tofutti cream cheese to make my acorn-onion dip. That’s on the menu for the coming holiday!
