  • Vegan Tofu Ricotta Cheese

  • Vegan Tofu Pot Pie

    When I was growing up, my mom’s close friend was vegan. In the 1980’s, this was uncommon in the U.S.’s Midwest. She was a wonderful role model–compassionate, kind, and giving.

  • Tofu Scramble

    I grew up eating Fantastic Foods Tofu Scrambler.  During college, I couldn’t always afford it. So, I started making my own vegan recipe for tofu scramble from scratch.
