Tofu. Probably one of the most discussed vegan foods out there. I feel like it is one of those foods that everyone thinks is the most disgusting thing until they learn how to use it in different types of recipes. I will admit that I too hated it in the beginning but I learned to incorporate it into different recipes and now I enjoy eating it. One of the things that tofu is great at is to be used as a substitute for eggs. I used to love making mini muffin-like omelets and I always ate them as lunch or for a snack but since I don’t eat eggs anymore I had to find another way to make them and this is where tofu comes in. The great thing about tofu is that you can make it taste like anything that you want since it dosn’t really taste like anything by itself. In this recipe, I chose to season it with garlic and spinach but you can experiment with any seasoning that you like. As you know I like to make customizable recipes to make it ideal for anyone’s taste and this one is no different. Another customizable thing about this recipe is the filling. I used bell peppers and tomatoes but you can use whatever vegetable that you like.
