SESAME ORANGE TOFU

SESAME ORANGE TOFU from WHOLE FOODS in the deli case.

Now here’s a piece of tofu I couldn’t stop eating! Like most vegan items in deli cases these days, it’s not always there. This was the first time I saw it. Next time, before I go all the way out there, I’ll call first to see if they have it.

Even though it didn’t taste anything like sesame seeds or orange, I know full well that it’s the combination of the ingredients that creates the final flavor achievement, not any one ingredient.

Tender like fluff. Nice breading crunch too. Wow, I couldn’t brag enough.

I added a little of my own dressing for an extra pop and it did exactly that.

Microwaved great.

AFC Waldorf Astoria (WA) Salad

AFC WALDORF ASTORIA SALAD

Although Waldorf Salad was popular in my day (and I’m 70 years old), it was more popular in my parents’ and grandparent’s time. 

~ “The name comes from the fact that the Waldorf salad was first created for a charity ball given in honor of the St. Mary’s Hospital for Children on March 14, 1896, at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in New York City” (wikipedia).

The Animal-Free Chef presents a new slant on an old tradition. Hope you like it!

Makes about 4 cups glazed walnuts; 4 cups Waldorf dressing and for this recipe 8 cabbage and grape servings

TOFURKEY HAM ROAST

Well, well, well, who would think a plant could be transformed into a replica of a ham roast? Not me years ago. Times have changed and lucky for us all, especially those whose hides are stolen to satisfy the cannibalistic palates of humans! Yea! Congratulations to the fine folks over at Tofurkey for this wild success!

AFC Vegan Ham And Egg Macaroni Salad – using May Wah vegan ham

AFC VEGAN HAM AND EGG MACARONI SALAD

You can’t get much better than this. Lots of new techniques applied to an old-time favorite salad. Macaroni has a new place in the heirarchy of pasta salads. You don’t even need the dressing, in fact some of you will want to forego it. Or, half with dressing, half without. Either way it made it to the moon and back! 

Makes 14 cups solids and almost 2 cups dressing

VEG SCRAMBLED EGG AND GARBANZO BEAN SALSA

Not your ordinary salsa! I like this so much that I eat it plain as a snack. Also can be used in a sandwich or as a salad served on a lettuce leaf. Multipurpose is what I like and I love this chewy texture, multi flavor, varied color, high protein content – everything good salsa! And so will you!

DONKEY BEAN SAUCE

DONKEY BEAN SAUCE 

You can’t really taste the tomato or the beans or the pumpkin or the sesame seeds – not distinctly. Even the texture throws you off for a bean sauce. Nobody will connect this sauce to beans – unless they are a bean aficionado. No one ingredient commandeers the recipe. Brilliant strategy!

Makes 4 cups sauce

TOFU SHIRATAKI MACARONI

TOFU SHIRATAKI MACARONI

I like everything about tofu pasta.  A great invention. I made a stir-fry the other night, then added these at the end. They only take a few minutes to prepare. Very easy.

They don’t taste and texture like grain pasta, but who cares when both taste and texture please the palate.
