Tofu, Black Beans, and Veggie Quesadillas

Say what you want about tofu, but to me, it is a blank slate of perfect protein. You can complain about it all you want, but you have to know how to handle it. In this preparation,  I added all the flavoring of chorizo with none of the sausage. I think I made one of…

Seitan Stir Fry with Cauliflower Rice

I don’t know if a lot of you know this, but I used to be a vegetarian; a vegan even! 13 years of vegetarianism with 3 years of those being vegan, I learned to love all veggies, fruits, and different types of fake meats (but vegan cheese was not very good at all). It has…
