Two Vegan Boys Weblog

A journey of cooking vegan food for my family.

TGIF!!!!!!

Hello there.  How are you?  It is Friday.  Yippee!  I have been busy baking cupcakes for upcoming parties.  I also am excited to say that  a recipe from Two Vegan Boys is featured in the current issue of Meatout Mondays.

In other news, we are a winner winner tofu dinner.  No really.  Happy Herbivore had a question one day that said, “Do you tofu?”  I mentioned that we especially liked to make and eat tofu jerky.  Our suggestion along with another was chosen.  We won a Nasoya tofu gift pack.  Insert Snoopy dance here.  By the way, have you checked out Happy Herbivore lately?  Tomorrow starts the 30 WHOLE Days Challenge. A challenge in which you only eat whole, unprocessed foods for the next 30 days.   

Tofu Jerky    

1/3c tamari
2T liquid smoke
2t onion powder
1t garlic powder
2t maple syrup or sugar
1 pkg firm tofu, sliced very thin.

Combine all the ingredients, marinate overnite. Lay tofu slices in a single layer in a dehydrator. Dehydrate until desired consistency or bake in the over at lowest setting, 200F for 5-6 hous. *For a grown-up jerky, add coarse black pepper or cajun seasoning.  Easy, tasty, and healthy snack for kids and adults.  Enjoy!

Last night I made a quick and tasty meal using the last of our CSA veggies.  I made sauteed beets and greens with white beans and broccoli over a bed of couscous topped with a ginger orange sauce.  And balsalmic baked tofu on the side. It was a lite and refreshing meal.  The greens used were from the beets and some arugula from our CSA. 
Last night I made a treat for the guys in my life.  Strawberry cupcakes.  Heavenly!
Well I am about to leave to go pick up our weekly CSA.  I can’t wait to see what lovely vegetables are in store for us this week.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
peas and love….

    I’ve been wanting to make some jerky for ages but have never gotten around to it. I shall pull out my sadly neglected dehydrator tomorrow and give it a go! Thanks for posting the recipe!

  4. Yum, that jerky sounds delicious! Congrats on getting all the recipe attention, too!

    And so glad to hear you are enjoying your CSA!
