Tofu-Coconut “Yogurt”

Hi everyone, I created a new recipe: tofu coconut yogurt. It’s creamy, tangy, delicious and a very satisfying alternative to the store bough yogurts.

I shared the recipe on my cooking demo at station FMR for the Pop Up Shop Vegan event and I wanted to say a special thank everyone who come 🙏💕 Let’s get started!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 block of silken tofu
  • 1 can of coconut milk (solid part only)*
  • 1/2 lime, juice only
  • 1/2 lemon, juice only
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt

*Make sure to get a good quality of coconut milk where the only ingredients are coconut and water otherwise you won’t be able to scoop only the solid/ cream part only.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth;

2. Taste and adjust sweetness (maple) and acidity (lemon) if needed;

3. Allow it to cool in the fridge to get a thicker texture;

4. And enjoy as is or with your favorite toppings! Mine are granola and Quebec strawberries at the moment.

Note: you can blend in some fruits to make a fruit yogurt or freeze into popsicles for a refreshing treat!

Bon Appétit !

Go To tofu/ tempeh (4 ingredients)

This super easy and versatile tofu/ tempeh marinade recipe is my absolute GO TO and I can almost guarantee that it will get you hooked on tofu!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 block of Firm Tofu (or Tempeh)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Press the tofu in a clean towel to remove extra moisture;
  • Chop the tofu bloc to form sticks or cubes;
  • Add the melted coconut oil, soy sauce, nutritional yeast and garlic powder;
  • Let it marinate for minimum 10 minutes (the more the better);
  • Add to a pan on medium-high heat and cook each side until golden brown (no need to add oil because we already have enough coconut oil in the marinade);
  • -OR-
  • Bake in a 375°F oven until golden (approx. 25 minutes).

Tip: Don’t move the tofu too much in the pan to obtain a crispy outer layer.

Bon Appétit!
