This beauty is a real hit at our house. It has become so loved that my husband is requesting a loaf once a week at least :)
It is good as a cold cut to put in your sandwich, on a charcuterie board or even just as a cold snack to eat straight out of the fridge.
The preparation is so quick and if you are a little experienced with making ‘meat’ substitutes, you will probably have all the ingredients already at your disposal at home.
I like to play and change the spices a little every time I make this but this is the basic recipe that you’ll absolutely love.
Tofu is the most common source of protein in most vegan diets. Tofu is low in calories but high in protein and fat which make it a great substitute to use in main course dishes. It also contains many important vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, manganese, selenium and iron.
Dates "honey" or syrup is the syrup produced from the date fruit, it has a lower glycemic index than sugar, which is better for your blood sugar. Thanks to the fact that the "honey" is made with whole fruit, there’s some evidence it contains magnesium, potassium, and other minerals. Dates "honey" is still very sweet and should be consumed in moderation.
Pastami 'steaks' served with dried fruits sauce, recipe coming soon
Whenever I go into the kitchen, whether it is for cooking or baking, I need to have my music with me. I thought it would be nice to share with you the exact song that describes my feeling towards each recipe. That way you can have a similar experience while cooking...
This recipe is one that we absolutely love in my house and it has so many good versions of it, so it reminds me of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen or by Jeff Buckley (Much like this pastrami, both versions are awesome)
