Food Is Our Medicine

It is essential for us to have a basic understanding of our physical make-up. This is highly relevant knowledge that will help us know how to better take care of ourselves.

Tofu Scramble

This is one of my favorite tofu dishes. I often prepare this at home for breakfast or brunch. It’s a great alternative to scrambled eggs. People really enjoy it! Ingredients 1 (14–16-ounce) block extra-firm tofu 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (or your favorite cooking oil) ½ teaspoon turmeric 1 cup chopped onions ½ cup diced…

Tofu Salad

This is my rendition of a tofu salad. It looks and eats like egg salad, but it’s vegan. In the warm weather I like to create dishes that don’t require cooking. Tofu is rather bland, so I have really seasoned it up. I served it out at work this weekend for the first time and received…

Tomato and Cucumber Salad

I like to make this dish when tomatoes and cucumbers are in season (they taste so much better). We have them in such bounty that I am constantly looking for ways to add them to my recipes. I decided to use lemon balsamic vinegar instead of regular balsamic this time around and I thought it…

Seasoned Baked Tofu

Baked tofu is a staple in my home. It’s a great way to add texture and flavor to tofu–and it’s healthier than frying. With just two simple seasonings, the tofu is well flavored. I made this dish at work the other day and everyone really loved it–especially the kids! They were very happy to take…

Millet Croquettes

This is a fun way to prepare millet. Croquettes are crispy, savory cakes (patties) that can be made with a variety of ingredients. In this recipe all the seasonings are cooked into the millet; this adds a depth of flavor to the patties. The starch in the millet binds the croquettes (no eggs or flour needed). It’s…
