more questions...

Yep - still waiting on the hubs, so.......

what's your favorite spice or spice blend?
coriander

you have $20 to spend on fresh groceries and produce for the whole week (with a fairly well stocked pantry of dry goods, legumes, grains, and spices).
spinach, potatoes, bananas, tomatoes

what's your favorite way to make tofu?
Marinate it in mirin, Bragg, and sesame oil then bake it and serve it with a raw satay sauce

vegan guilty pleasure?
Tofutti

were you always interested in cooking, or did veg*nism change the way you saw and interacted with food?
I started cooking in the kitchen with my mom at a very young age and have always been interested in cooking

excluding analogues, what new things have you tried that you probably wouldn't have as an omni?
Can't think of a thing. I'm pretty adventurous.

what is the one vegan staple that everyone seems to love, but you can't get behind?
Daiya "cheese" - yuck.

what question about being veg*n do you HATE answering?
Where do you get your protein? Ugh.

are your pets vegan? if so, what do you feed them?
No. I feed the cats Kumpi cat food supplemented with locally grown, chemical free meat. I feed the dog Kumpi dog food supplemented with the same thing as the cats as well as fresh fruits and vegetables.

what’s one “veg*n myth” you’d like to squash?
That the diet is boring. I can't tell you how many times I've told people about something I've eaten, and they have NO IDEA what it even is. My diet is quite interesting and varied. I eat a much greater variety of food than any omni that I know.

How do you slice the tofu when you bake it? Also: where's your raw satay sauce recipe? (I have one; I'm all about the comparisons!) Baked tofu. Mmmmm.

When I marinate it and bake it, I just cube it. I'll dig out the satay sauce and send you the recipe. I know it has miso, tahini, and orange juice though - weird combo I know, but it works! I'd love to hear about your recipe!
