Vegans, take heart: Here's an appealing dish for the grilling season. Pressed tofu is marinated in chimichurri -- an Argentinian herb sauce that's usually served with steak -- and then grilled with slices of wholegrain bread. Cucumbers and avocado round out the meal. This recipe comes from our book "Clean Slate: A Cookbook and Guide."
Kale, ginger, garlic, and soybeans, in the form of miso and tofu, combine to lend flavor and nutrients to a delicate soup. This soup is brimming with soy, an excellent source of protein as well as antioxidants. Kale, a cruciferous vegetable, is high in vitamins A and C, folic acid, calcium, and iron.
Tofu, not mayonnaise, gives this dressing a silky texture without the extra saturated fat. The cilantro-lime flavor makes it a perfect accompaniment for Latin-inspired dishes like fish or chicken tacos; simply add shredded cabbage or radishes on top.
These drinks make a refreshing and nutritious snack -- especially once you swirl in fresh fruit.
Soft silken tofu provides the best results for this drink. If you only have firm or extra-firm silken tofu on hand, however, you can add as much as a quarter cup of extra soy milk to achieve the desired consistency. To reduce the fat, use the lite variety.
You also can try substituting blueberries or raspberries for the strawberries, or you can experiment with other soft fruits like mangos and peaches.
This shake stores well in the refrigerator for up to three days.
