OK I AM POSTING THIS EARLY because you guys are all so darn nice, acting my 6 miles was something special...seriously I miss my 14 miler days. Also don't forget to checkout LIL Runners Bake Sale for charity!!
Tofu and I have this weird relationship where I walk by...then go back and pick it up...put it down...and repeat cycle! I just really couldn't imagine that I would know what to do with it. However as I have ventured in to cooking, I'm realizing I can do much more than I thought. So when Nasoya came out with these new Silken Creations...it was game time.
In an effort of full disclosure, I have to admit we got off to a rocky start, as they sent me some expired tofu...not once but twice. BUT then I tried the
Ok first up is the vanilla...probably my fav which is no suprise I love vanilla ice cream! You may have noticed this in a lot of my Green Monster twist recipes. It worked like a charm since I never have any milk on hand.
But I also used it to make chocolate chip cookies! They have a ton of recipes on their site, but I started with a version that made a very soft cookie...David ate 3 of them and had no clue they contained tofu...SCORE!
Also seen in my green monsters was the chocolate silken creation...perfect for a dessert smoothie. However, I also decided to spoon some up with a Gluten Free Life Chocolate chip muffin (what is that another giveaway item??) and seriously that may be one of the best desserts I've made at home in a long time!! Is this why my weight is creeping up?Now they also have this picture of BEAUTIFUL pie on their site, so I thought ok let's give it a go. I made the pie as you saw for our BBQ Saturday and it was pretty good...but their's looks SO MUCH BETTER! So I didn't do something right, but hey you live and learn.STRAWBERRY
Ohhh strawberries, they make me happy. Once again...yes I've used it in Green Monsters and friends it is soo good. But I had to be more creative than that so it was time for POPSICLES! I haven't made these in eons, so I busted out the frozen blueberries/strawberries and blended everything together then filled the holder....YEAH!! It was just like I made those Whole Fruit pops, but for way less money and less sugar and well YEAH!!
I know a number of you are cutting out soy for the Whole Life Challenge and I think that's a worthy cause...if you were way overdoing it. I on the other hand believe everything in moderation. I mean if I am eating cookies, surely soy is no worse for me than that.
