Sweet and Spicy Nooch Coated Tofu
Raise your hand if you too once thought that tofu was flavourless?
I am raising both of my hands right now! I went as far as thinking that on top of being flavourless, it was also completely gross and could not understand for the life of me how some people could eat it.
Granted, that was way before I went vegan and before actually giving tofu a fair chance. Since going vegan almost 4 years ago, my thoughts on tofu have done a literal 180! I loooove tofu so much! Yes, straight out of the packaging it is not great, but is raw chicken straight out of the wrapping good? Nope.
Because of its very mild flavour and because you can find all types of tofu (from silky smooth to extra firm), it is one of the most versatile vegan ingredients. From using it in my Date Sweetened Double Chocolate Tarts, in my Vegan Eggs Benedict or in my Marinated Tofu Tacos, I have learned that tofu can adapt to more situations than one can even begin to imagine.
And that is why, I can proudly say that now, tofu is one of my favorite ingredients!
Well… On that note, I am really excited to share yet another super quick and easy recipe with you guys! I know how much you love them and I think if you love tofu and are looking for a new way to prep it, you will loooove this one!
If you do end up making this recipe, be sure to share it on social media and tag me (@muriellebanackissa).
Have a wonderful week my friends!
