Almost like Chicken but Not Quite

"Chicken" Tofu Nuggets
Got the original recipe at this website.

•1 block firm or extra-firm tofu, pressed
•1/3 cup rice milk
•2 tbsp mustard
•1 tsp onion powder
•1 tsp garlic powder
•1/2 tsp salt
•1/4 tsp black pepper
•1.5 tbsp nutritional yeast
•3/4 cup flaxseed meal (or bread crumbs)

1. In a wide bowl, whisk together the rice milk, mustard, nutritional yeast and spices until smooth. Place the flaxseed meal in a separate wide bowl.

2. Coat each piece of tofu with wet mixture first, then coat with crumbs.

3. These can be baked or fried until golden brown, I personally prefer to bake them at 350F for about 22-24 minutes, turning once.

Makes 2 servings of vegetarian tofu nuggets.

Kale Hemp Salad
Original recipe from Domestic Affair Blog.

The Salad:
1 large bunch kale, washed, thinly chopped, and dried
3 tbsp cider vinegar
1/2 tsp sea salt

Toss to distribute. The more you toss it the better! Then add:

The Dressing:
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/3 cup hemp seeds
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground cayenne pepper (original recipe called for coriander but I didn't have any)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup fresh sprouts (optional, I didn't use them)

Toss all ingredients together until well-distributed. Allow it to rest for a few minutes.

Makes 2-3 larger servings.
