SO let's GIVE TOFU A SERIOUS SPICE UP Y'AAAALL. Look, no matter what a vegan tries to tell you....tofu got no flava. If the first experience a non-vegetarian or vegan has of tofu is not done right, then that's it! THEY'LL THINK THAT'S HOW WE EAT IT AND WILL RUIN THEIR VIEW OF OUR PLANT-BASED DIET FOREEEVAAAAA...AND MAKE MEMES ABOUT IT. SO, IF you wanna represent the plant-based community, it best be flavor-filled. 😂😂😂 Here is my masala tofu with a whole lot of aroma, delicious spices, & chickpeas. You can use this in a wrap, on toast, over a salad, or just on its own with a lil sauce.
I also wouldn't recommend having tofu regularly. I maybe make it once a week in different ways, but it's definitely not something I would recommend having as a base for your diet. Remember, fresh food is best 😁!
