Vegan Dad's Egg-Free Salad

Vegan Dad is always busy making traditionally great stuff into tasty vegan delicacies -- like this egg-free salad. He points out, “This is a great way to introduce tofu to people who don't eat it on a regular basis.” Serve it on bread or enjoy it with crackers or fresh veggies. Kids like it wrapped up in a small tortilla with some shredded romaine and tomato. He says, "Past experience has taught me that a) kids llike things in tortillas, and b) kids like portions that aren't too daunting.”

Ingredients:

1 package firm or extra firm non-silken tofu
3 Tbs. minced dill pickle
1 green onion, minced
1 Tbs. Dijon mustard
¼ tsp. paprika
¼ tsp. turmeric
freshly ground pepper (to taste)
3-6 Tbs. Vegenaise (to taste -- see product below)

Directions:

  1. Press the tofu by draining it, cutting it in half horizontally, and blotting dry; line a plate with a folded lint-free dishtowel or several layers of paper towels and set the tofu on the toweling; cover the tofu with paper towels or a small cutting board and put several cans of food or other weight on top; let sit for at least 15 minutes, changing the towels as they become saturated.
  2. Crumble tofu with your hands into a bowl (Note: make it as chunky or as fine as you want).
  3. Add dill pickle, onion, mustard, paprika, tumeric, and pepper.
  4. Add enough Vegenaise to get the consistency you like and mix well.
  5. Refrigerate until ready to serve. It tastes even better the next day.

Soy Benefits

A fresh look at past research reveals that people who eat a lot of unfermented soy products like tofu may have a smaller chance of getting lung cancer. Compounds in the soy called isoflavones have been shown to slow cancer cell growth in the lab.

Chinese and U.S. scientists examined 11 observational studies, a few of which followed people for a decade. People with the most soy in their diet had a 23 percent lower risk of lung cancer than those with the least. The link between soy and decreased cancer risk only held for unfermented products such as tofu and soy milk. Furthermore, it was only true for people who never smoked, women, and Asian populations.

James Cromwell - Vegan Talk

James Cromwell is an outspoken vegan and animal advocate. He has narrated Farm to Fridge, an eye-opening film about the way animals are raised for food, and encouraged others to go vegan by saying “If you love animals, don’t eat them.” Now, the actor has opened up about his love for all animals and what inspired him to go from vegetarian to ethical vegan over 15 years ago.

James explains that he had been a vegetarian since the 1970's, and it was his experience while filming a movie that led to his vegan diet. “I was doing a picture in Australia called Babe, working with a lot of animals and animal trainers. I cared about their welfare and then of course you have lunch and it’s all there in front of you, and I thought I should go the whole hog, so to speak. So I made that decision and kept that during the shooting."

His advice for transitioning to a vegan diet? “Start with one meal a day, then up it to one day a week, then one week a month. Work your way into not consuming animals and animal products and inform yourself. It doesn’t take anything at all, and it’s very easy to do. Then you start to think, ‘What else?’ This process begins your consciousness.”
