Salads are Perfect with 40 Degree Weather
Well, since we're having such a heat wave here in Toronto, J and i thought that this week's cook-a-long recipe was perfect to try - no cooking/baking/frying involved! Normally, i'm not that excited about 'raw' tofu that's marinated for a mere hour, but this dish was scrumptuous!
Of course, we had to improvise a bit because we were also too lazy to go out and get some groceries. So, instead of ground flax seeds i used flax oil, and instead of cashews, i chopped up almonds and sesame sticks. We also didn't have any celery in the house. We put the salad on a bed of spinach and toasted some bread to go with it.
It really was a tasty surprise - flavourful, a great texture, and not too 'tofu-y.'
Unfortunately, i think i'll miss (or at least do late) next week's recipe, i'm off to Vancouver for a week - my first time there! I can't wait, especially to indulge in all the great vegan-friendly institutions there! See you when i'm back!
