CAN YOU PASS THE TOFU…
A lot of vegans today say that their one regret is they didn’t become vegan sooner, but let’s not kid ourselves, it would have been so tough! I mean, salad? I’m not a rabbit!
True, with all of the vegan food options and information, being a vegan today is better and easier than ever! But, hey, being vegan was never about having fun, being better than others (this one is just a bi-product, jk! – or am I?), or for convenience, am I right?
So, props to all those OG vegans from before the 2000s and 2010s, like before being vegan was “cool”. Thank you for inspiring, educating, and paving the way for myself and all of the vegans that came after. It’s an amazing time time to be vegan. Let’s keep the momentum going! Oh, and can you please pass the tofu? Thank youuu!
Haidilao Hotpot has some vegan options like broth, veggies, tofu and various other soy-based ingredients. The value wasn’t quite there at the Richmond location, but it was very tasty and the ambience was nice. Back in 2013, I remember the China branch had more perks while waiting to be seated though. One of my faveContinue reading “Haidilao Hotpot in Richmond BC”
This tasty dish uses the mock chicken from Happy Veggie World in Richmond, which I’ve blogged about before. I love the chewy meaty texture of the mock chicken, which I just deep fried, seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, mushroom seasoning powder, and chili powder. Topped it all off with fresh chopped cilantroContinue reading “Salty Peppery Vegan Chikin Veggies and Rice”
This tasty comfort food is a piece of cake to make! William Yeung from YouTube has a 9-minute video demonstrating how to make this savoury, spicy, and zingy tofu dish. The dish has that soft tofu mouth-feel and a satisfying sauce covered over white jasmine rice. It’s all topped off with some aromatic chopped greenContinue reading “Vegan Mapo Tofu following Will Yeung’s Easy Recipe”
These delicious little nuggets are super crispy and remind me a lot of Yves chick’n nuggets, but at a fraction of the price! You can buy them bulk from Happy Veggie World in Richmond. They are imported from Taiwan, and in my experience, that means darn good quality! Taiwanese culture tends to be pretty healthContinue reading “Crispy Chik’n Nuggets from Happy Veggie World”
On the weekend, I juiced up some jumbo carrots in my Breville juicer to make delicious creamy carrot juice (I find the jumbo carrots are much sweeter than regular carrots). With the leftover carrot pulp, I decided to make a soup stock out of it. It was really simple, just add it to a potContinue reading “Homemade Spicy Lemongrass Chick’n Noodle Soup”
I was SkipDashing (doing SkipTheDishes and DoorDash deliveries) when I had a spur of the moment decision to take a break and see what yummy food I could get into my belly…
Nice light and airy crepe-like meal filled with tender potatoes, cauliflower, and fresh tangy tomatoes.
Delicious deep fried tofu and avocado mango rolls. The agedashi was nice and crispy with a sweet and savoury soy glaze on top, all over a bed of mixed veggies (broccoli, cabbage, bean sprouts, and carrots. They have a lot of vegan options. So, next time you’re in New West, you may want to giveContinue reading “Hyack Sushi”
It was great to find that Taco Del Mar has plant based meat options now. However, I found the Beyond Meat crumble very tough and dryyy. I would not want to eat it again. I hope that Beyond improves their formula, because I do love their burger patties. I have yet to try their breakfastContinue reading “TACO DEL MAR”
Beyond Meat Burger at White Spot
Writing this blog post makes me want another one…Oh gawdddddddd…The weird thing is that this beyond patty didn’t taste like the ones from the grocery stores or A&W, or even other restaurants that carry it. I’m not sure why the texture and flavour seemed so different to me. Visually, it looked like it was deep fried and more pale or something.
Out of pure food science, I’ve tried Pizza Pizza’s vegan calzone and panzerotti at, like, three locations. They’re actually slightly different (texture and size most notably). But, they were all really really yummy in my frikkin’ tummy.
A&W nuggets were pricey AF, but pretty tasty
10-piece A&W nuggets made by Lightlife. At the time of this writing (Dec. 15 2019), Lightlife’s nuggets are being served at all A&W locations across Ontario and British Columbia, Canada.
This place was not bad. I almost stepped out after looking at the unimpressive vegan selection (Like, where’s my little box of vegan options, and little green leaf logos, huh? Come on now! It’s 2019). The friendly and very persuasive staff convinced me to try some of their stuff. She even threw in some social proof by stating that they have a lot of regular vegan patrons. Okay, so…
Happy Veggie Faux/Mock Meat Supplier in Richmond If a Vegan “chicken” nugget looks like a chicken nugget and tastes like a chicken nugget, is it a chicken nugget? – Jacob H. After hearing about Happy Veggie World from friends over the past 3 years, I finally got to visit them in Richmond this October. MyContinue reading “Happy Veggie World”
