‘Fish’ balls with creamy garlic dipThis recipe is a unique one. I had no previous experience with the nonvegan versions of it, at all. In my past life (before turning vegan... ), I was never one to like fishy foods. I never ate anything that came out of the water, so this was a special challenge for me.
A little background as to why I took on this challenge, there is a tradition in the jewish celebration of ‘Rosh Hashanah’ (a celebration of the new year) to eat a fish’s head. The blessing goes “May we be heads, not tails”, in other words, leaders rather than followers…
Anyway, as I wanted to keep a little bit of the tradition but not in any way harm anyone, I figured I’ll try to make something ‘fishy’ to serve in our holiday feast.
It seemed that it worked and the ex-pescatarians said it tasted just like they remembered.
I am extra proud to share this recipe with you. Hopefully these types of dishes will be the only ‘fishy’ things on our table.
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.
Nori seaweed snack
These dried nori seaweed snack are so good, I just love eating them as a snack so why not adding them to your favorite recipes?. They provide all sorts of minerals and vitamins. Several nutrients you get from these snacks are iodine, copper, iron, potassium, magnesium, and calcium and they are high in fiber.
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 started as a challenge for me, I wasn't really a fan of the seaweed taste so I mostly made it for other people. Now, I got to say I just love it, one of my favorite dishes and now it is so easy. Just like You can't hurry love by Phil Collins says.
