  1. New subscriber here – feeling totally inspired by you! You might have already addressed this in another video so please forgive me if you have (I’ve binge watched a bunch but not all lol), but would you consider doing a video about your work-out routine? Or even a “work out with me” type vid? Super curious to learn more about how you are staying in shape and gaining muscle. Thanks!!!!

  2. Hi Sarah! These TOFU RECIPES look amazing – thanks for sharing and greetings from Canada! Keep cooking! Nik & Carol

  3. I’m so glad I found this channel cos I’m considering reducing my meat intake (go full vegetarian or vegan? not sure) and so far I want to try everything haha x

    1. That’s so awesome! Vegetarian or vegan a couple times a week is a good place to start so you don’t feel overwhelmed. Glad my ideas can help you. πŸ™‚

  4. I am not vegan (yet), but I’ve been watching your videos for a while and tried out a couple recipes (salmon and hot dog). I sorta decided today that I’m going to switch to a full vegan diet. I guess I’ve been afraid of being miserable, but your videos have taught me I can still be satisfied by vegan meals. So thank you!

    Also, I am trying that sweet chili recipe tonight! πŸ™‚

    1. sandra huber Thanks Sandra! I appreciate you taking the time to write that out. I was able to take away some good tips from that. The one random thing I have going for me, however, is that I was raised on an organic soy farm and have been eating it for a long time (gotta support the family trade! πŸ˜‚).And I get tofu as my “meat” about 75%of the time…almost always if it’s an option. I just virtually never cook with it tofu. I prefer mushrooms as a meat sub honestly.

      But I do like the idea of fasting for a few days. I’m going to try that out on Monday and Tuesday, i think, because I want to reset a little as you said. Thank you again for your thoughtful response!

    2. Congrats! Smiling so wide just reading your comment and knowing that I can help in some small way. Really don’t worry too much about the transition; do it on your own time. Took me quite some time just learning more and taking small steps before I could stick to it 100%. Every little bit counts. πŸ™‚

    3. Hey there! As you commented this pretty recently, I’d like to give you a couple of tips, so you may transition smoothly. It’s great to hear, that someone’s making the choice to be vegan! But form experience I can tell you, that going vegan from one day to another can be bit of a challenge. First of all, your digestion system might be go crazy. If you have cramps, which is pretty common, just switch to a vegetarian diet for a week, so your body can get used to your new diet. There’s no shame in it, believe me.
      Anyway, I hate to break it to you, but you may want to consider your dinner choice. If you haven’t been eating tofu regularly before, you want to stay off it for a while yet. If your body’s not used to it, tofu can be a bit problematic and it would probably aggreviate any stomach pain you might experience. Rule of thumb: You want to avoid any typically ‘vegan’ foods for at least a week, better two, then introduce them slowly. This includes tofu, vegan cheese, soy anything, lots of legumes, anything you’re not used to. There’s nothing wrong with these foods, you’re just not used to them yet. Remember, your diet is perhaps the biggest outside influence on your body, that you can control. If you attempt to change everything at once, you’re body won’t be up for that. Change things slowly, one after the other. Take time to adjust.
      If you want to jump start things, you can try ‘reboothing’ your body. Fasting works pretty well. For example, only drink water and vegan broth for a day or two, then you add in all kinds of fruit, then vegetables, then grains, legumes, fancy stuff like tofu and you should be good to go. Bit of a hassle, but has the sideeffect of resetting your tastebuds as well.
      It’s probably wierd, that I’d write that long of message to a complete stranger, but I’ve seen people switching everything about their diet, failing horribly and then going back to hot dogs and mac n cheese. Hell I almost did that.. So? Uh? Sorry for bothering you and stuff, hope everything works out. k bye *hides*

  5. Thanks! I’m looking forward to trying the tofu with the cornflour coating for that bit of extra texture. At my local Asiana markets they have the bags of deep fried tofu that just need sauce and heating up, but this looks less naughty. Also love marinading tofu in harissa/hoisin or in a pesto-y sauce i’ve blitzed up. The sugar in the hoisin and the oil in the pesto, when the tofu has been on the george forman grill gives it great grill lines.

    1. I love it too! it’s so filthy when you bite in and all the sauce it absorbed oozes out! Yum! But i can see the cornflour giving it a crunch =D

    2. Oh my goodness! That deep fried tofu you’re talking about is one of my favorite treats. Texture is out of this world. I never would have thought to try tofu with pesto but now I for sure need to!

  6. Just got finished cooking/eating the sweet chili one…OMG it was amazing. My 14 year old, who’s a super picky eater, HAD SECONDS!

    1. Yesss I’m so happy! My sister is really picky — she’s always how I decide whether a dish is going to be a crowd-pleaser.

  7. oh yea! i love the flexibility of tofu but it gets boring. this is what i’ve been needing, these recipes! i’m going to do the first one tonight, but since i don’t have sweet chili sauce on hand will use asian ginger sauce, sort of a sassy kick πŸ˜‰ thanks for posting this!

    1. I don’t fully know the difference between the two, but I bet it would taste similar. I think any type of flour (all-purpose, rice, etc.) would work actually.

  8. I just suscribed, I’ve seen you in my recommended for a few weeks but I made the mistake of not clicking on any. Your videos are really great and I’m excited to see what else you post! Much love <3

  9. Can’t wait to try these recipes, thank you so much, my family loves the flavor of all your recipes! πŸ’–πŸ’–

  10. Thank you so much for this video and I love your channel in general. I’ve woke up HUNGRY, like 3 day hungry and was frustrated with what to make. Vegan idea’s don’t come easily to me. This was quick, fast , SAVORY which is hard to find – and satisfying.

  11. Hot sauce on everything πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ€™πŸΎπŸ€™πŸΎπŸ€™πŸΎπŸ€™πŸΎ

  12. Ahh cant wait to try that sweet n sour tofu meal! That looks so easy and super tasty. I really used to love sweet n sour chicken so this is a good alternative. Thank you

  13. I can barely find any new inspiring vegan channels, until i found yours, it is so new and refreshing in some sort of way! And your voice is so relaxing to listen to!

  14. I don’t know why you don’t have a bunch of subbies! You’re great! I mean I’m not Vegan but your recipes are delish! πŸ€—

  15. Hey! Awesome recipes, will be trying them next week for sure!! I’ve been really into the tofu game lately haha Just wanted to stop by and tell you to check this video () because actually, frying with coconut oil is a bad idea! It’s usually said it takes the heat best but this study shows it doesn’t, and it’s smoke point is too low, so it’s not good at all. You need to stop the video to read the little paragraph about it though, because he doesn’t read the explanation, just says not to use it! Best is actually canola oil, crazy right??

  16. Just started looking up ways to cook tofu and came across your video. I appreciate your tutorial, I’ll be trying out the first recipe soon! Keep it up.

  17. In the first recipe, what oil would you recommend to replace the coconut oil to still taste good for someone who is allergic to coconut?

    1. Just regular canola or vegetable would work fine, or peanut oil. I just use coconut oil because I like the flavor.
