Recipe: Gingery Tofu Veggie Saute
I have been a huge fan of Nasoya products ever since my very first days of being a vegetarian. Nasoya has always been here for us vegans, and I'm always thrilled to work with them. They have expanded their line so much, included a ton of innovative vegan food products, and are a brand that I really do trust.
In fact, Nasoya has been a leading provider of wholesome organic natural plant foods for over 30 years!
Today I want to focus on their tofu, which I absolutely love. Their tofu is such a versatile ingredient that can be used in so may different dishes, from snacking to main meals and even desserts! What I love most about Nasoya's tofu is that it tastes great and is also packing 9 grams of protein per serving! Nasoya's packaging makes it an easy choice, just open, drain and use the tofu; easy! With clean and simple ingredients (water, non-GMO soy and salt!), I feel good about all my meals made using Nasoya tofu.
Actually, out of all the tofu brands that I have tried over the years, Nasoya has always been my favorite in terms of taste, quality, and value. I wanted to create a new tofu recipe that will be interesting and different, but also perfect for this time of year - serving as a main or side dish with the upcoming holidays too! This dish is such a breeze to make, while the flavors are bold and really stand out. This will be a quick meal to throw together, but also an impressive one.
