soy boy



Soy oh howdy are we gonna get busy with some tofu. I thought I would start you off with dessert. This is one of my own concoctions, in fact everything I will be posting will be invented by me. We have a tofu 'shortrib' coming up along with some crunchy tacos with tofu 'taco meat' and a tofu breakfast scramble 'a la chorizo' just to tease with a few - but today it is the flan. Yuppo a tofu flan! I made a concentrated soymilk and added a decent amount of agar agar some mexican vanilla and I sweetened it with agave. I made a carob syrup with more agave and there you have it my unbaked dairy and egg free tofu flan. For the other dishes I am going to make some of the tofu but most of it I will pick up from a reputable source, the tofu that I make will be for special accents.




The pup wanted a maraschino cherry on his and he dogged it. It's creamy tasty and ever so light and the best part is you are eating -protein. When I make this again I might try coloring it with carrot juice or tumeric to get more of a yellow 'flan' effect.

First off, love the new photo...

And I love tofu and have never heard of a tofu flan...Yum.... I will have to try that out... sadly for me, I cannot eat a lot of dairy (even as a kid it was a no go) and I adore flan and am happy to eat depression era egg and milk free versions of foods I love... I

on the dairy end of things, have you ever heard of a parmesan flan?

As a kid I pined for the maraschino cherry and my ultimate joy was going to tour a maraschino cherry factory in oregon.

I want to try it but my mouth won't cooperate. I can't bring myself to bite into it.

One of my worst foods is Tapioca pudding. The look of Tofu reminds me of pudding. I hate that consistency.

BUT...I have been drinking wheat grass three times a week and never thought I'd go there either.

My son and I took cooking lessons at a vegetarian restaurant when he was 11 just to learn some variety, so I've cooked a lot of things with tofu. Never tried flan, though.

It's always interesting to see what you'll have on here and nice to see a wide range of dishes.
