Cooking Brown Rice:
While the rice is cooking and the tofu is baking:
Save time by buying baked tofu, but if you can make your own baked tofu, it's less expensive and tastier. Ditto the marinade.
Fried Tofu is another time saving option. But fresh veggies work far better in this recipe than frozen veggies.
Question: What is asefetida? I love your recipes - Maria B
Answer: Thank you, Maria! Asefetida is an Indian spice, also called hing. It's quite smelly, similar to garlic, and can be used as a garlic substitute. You just need the tiniest pinch, and if you have it in your cupboard, make sure it's very tightly sealed, so it doesn't make all your other spices smell like it! - Savvy Veg
Question: Hi thank you for that information. Can you tell me what is nutritional yeast and Braggs. - Maria B
Answer: Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast with a cheesy flavor, the only reliable vegan food source of Vitamin B12. It's found in the bulk foods or supplement section of food stores in flakes or powder. Don't get brewer's yeast by mistake - they look similar.
Braggs Liquid Aminos is a brand of salty liquid flavoring similar to soy sauce, but which isn't fermented, like soy sauce. You can always use soy sauce if Braggs isn't available - Savvy Veg
