It’s been a while since I’ve posted a homemade meal, hasn’t it? To kick off my vegan April, I treated myself to a tasty salad topped with tofu, cucumber, and a refreshing sesame miso dressing. The soy sauce marinated tofu chunks were leftovers from a dinner and were the perfect protein addition. I wish this fabulous sesame miso dressing were my own creation, but no, I got the recipe from here. I didn’t have fresh ginger, so I skipped that and it was still tasty.
Earlier this year, I stopped buying salad dressing at the grocery store and vowed to make my own dressing from now on. It’s convenient to have bottled dressing around, but when you examine the ingredients more closely, you’ll often find many undesirable ingredients in there. It only takes a few extra minutes to make your own dressing using a few basic ingredients. A hand whisk works for mixing the dressing, but I prefer the immersion blender.
I’ll be sharing more vegan meals soon, but follow me on Instagram to see it all as it happens!
