Best Blog Tips

A couple of years ago I had three articles on vegan protein alternatives featured in Alive Magazine.  I just realized that I never mentioned them on this blog!  I was looking up a recipe from one of the articles to make again, and thought some of you might welcome some new recipes for tofu, tempeh and basic seitan. So, I'm posting the links to the articles and recipes with the photos below.  I hope you'll find something new and intriguing in this collection.

The photos are all by Scott Yavis.

***The first article was "Versatile Tofu: The Kitchen Chameleon", from the June 2012 issue, which featured 5 recipes:

Smoked Tofu Cheese Spread with Smoked Almonds
Tofu Tikki Masala
Smoked Tofu and Fruit Wraps with Chipotle Cream
Top: Jamaican Ginger Beer Sherbet; Bottom: Korean BBQ Tofu and Vegetable Kebabs

***The second article was on Seitan, from the August 2012 issue, featuring 7 recipes, including how to make an easy, basic seitan that is used in all of the recipes.
