Summer Tofu Scramble

Another crazy hard crossfit workout this morning!!! Thrusters and GHD sit-ups – SO GOOD. Came home on a mission to eat and had two lovely heirloom tomatoes on the counter that were screaming to be used. I chopped them up and remembered I had both basil and arugala pesto in the fridge. Seeing as I […]

Grilled Tofu Caprese Summer Salad

So delicious and simple!!! Especially when you don’t feel like cooking in warm weather. I made the tofu this weekend and the basil pesto was from a couple of weeks ago stored in my fridge. I picked up gorgeous heirloom tomatoes at the Greenfield Farmer’s Market along with a beautiful, tender head of green leaf […]

Tempeh 1/4 Pounder (Faux Chicken Sandwich)

Tempeh ¼ Pounder Does this satisfy a craving or what? It is absolutely one of the best vegan burgers I have ever had. Simmering the tempeh in broth prior to pan frying “opens up” the tempeh and also softens it, allowing for a ton of flavor to be added into the burger. I dredged mine […]
