Zesty Asian-inspired Tempeh

Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Foodie Friday!🍴

Today I am sharing a simple dish that has become a staple for dinner! It’s super yummy!

Zesty Asian-inspired Tempeh

Marinate tempeh in soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and hoisin sauce. 

Cook until light brown in a pan.

Serve on top of rice with cilantro, a lime, and green onions!

You’re probably wondering what tempeh is, right? 

It’s actually a lot like Tofu, but less processed. It’s made of fermented soy compacted together. It’s tastes different than Tofu. In my opinion, it’s more flavorful and tasty!

Until next time, eat your veggies and have your tempeh too!

Foodie Friday: Nooch Coated Tofu 

Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Foodie Friday!🍴


My favorite lunch/dinner: Nooch Crusted Tofu.

(Nooch is Nutritional Yeast, it naturally has a cheesy and buttery flavor.)

Spray Braggs amino acids on extra firm Tofu. 

Coat the Tofu with nooch.

Pan fry with vegan butter. 

Put on a whole wheat bun. I like to add veganaise to mine! 

And that’s it! 

Until next time, remember: Have your veggies and eat your cookies🍪 too!

Homemade Vegan Cheese+Grilled Cheese+Fav Vegan Cheeses

Hey there! Thanks✨ for visiting Happy Healthy Noms for this week’s Foodie Friday!🍴

For the most part going Vegan was easy for me! The hardest part was giving up cheese (but for ethical reasons I gave it up.)

But it wasn’t hard for long! In fact, I never miss cheese!

Why?

Because just look at all the Vegan cheese products out there:

  Daiya is my FAVORITE Vegan cheese brand, and I absolutely reccomend any of their products.

In the mood for quick and easy mac & cheese? Try Earth Balance‘s mac & cheese with some broccoli.
  

How do you say: YUM! Right?

But, sometimes I want something that is more natural and not processed.

So, I make my own cheese (and it’s SUPER easy!)

 

Now THAT’S how you say YUM!

  • Servings: Several
  • Time: 5-10 Min.
  • Difficulty: SUPER Easy
  • Print

What’s in it?

  • 1 Cup (soaked overnight or for a couple hours) Raw Cashews
  • 1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2T Apple Cider Vinegar
  • A pinch of Garlic Powder
  • A couple dashes of Himalayan Pink Salt.

How to make it?

  1. Put everything in a Vitamix, blender, or food processor.
  2. Blend until it has a hummus-like consistency.
  3. Enjoy!

How can you enjoy your homemade Vegan cheese?

Use it as a dip for veggies!

 

Put it on burgers or sandwiches!
   

Or my favorite: make delicous Vegan Grilled Cheese!

Put it on Dave’s Killer Bread (I love the Good Seed Thin Slices) or Food for Life Ezekiel Bread!

   

Told you it was my favorite! It’s the perfect lunch: quick, easy, and delicious!
