Cauliflower and Tofu Pizza Crust (Gluten-Free, Low-Carb)

Most cauliflower pizza crust recipes call for a combination of cauliflower and cheese, but this one uses tofu instead of cheese, which can be easily converted to vegan. I used one pack of Wildwood Organic SprouTofu Firm Two Pack. Trader Joe’s has the best price for this product. Please use your favorite pizza sauce, cheese […]

Agedashi Tofu Baked in Toaster Oven (Gluten-Free)

I never make deep-fried food at home. It’s not that I don’t care for deep-fried food. While it’s true that it’s not very healthy to use a lot of omega-6 oil in your cooking, there are times I really crave for deep fried foods, such as shrimp and vegetable tempura, fish fry, and fried calamari. […]

Cabbage, Tofu and Tuna Stir Fry

When I visited a friend of mine in Washington DC last year, she made this for supper one day. I don’t normally eat tuna but decided to recreate it because it was so simple to make and delicious. I made slight changes to my friend’s original recipe. Note on Tuna: Please avoid canned white (Albacore) […]

Szechuan Green Beans and Tofu

I felt like I needed some protein and some spiciness today, so I created this simple Chinese dish for my supper. You can also make it without tofu or use other protein, such as chicken, beef or shrimp. Ingredients: 1/2 block tofu (7.5 oz or 200 g) (I used organic sprouted tofu) 12  oz (350 […]

Kimchi and Tofu Soup

I ordered a similar soup at one of my favorite Japanese restaurants in northern Illinois after attending an exciting piano recital by the Russian prodigy, Evgeny Kissin. I wanted to recreate this soup since it was very healthy and warming. I must say this is very close if not better than what I had at […]

Vegetarian Mapo Tofu

Mapo tofu served at Chinese restaurants always contains ground meat, so I came up with this vegan version. The taste is not exactly the same, but it is still a good dish. I suggest serving it with cooked quinoa or brown rice. Ingredients: 5 dried shiitake mushrooms 1 Tbsp sesame oil 1 tsp ginger, minced […]

Tofu and Seaweed Salad

Bok Choy Noodle Soup

I used noodles called konjak noodles (or Miracle Noodle) for this dish. This is a great product especially for someone who needs to control/prevent diabetes or needs to watch her weight. It contains no carbs, calories, gluten, or soy. It is derived from the roots of the Asian Konjac root called glucomannan, which is very rich in soluble fiber. […]
