Soy-Free Tofu Recipe
I made a post a while back about my top tips on sneaking in enough protein throughout the day. In that post, I confessed that I struggle with eating enough protein. Why? Because I just don’t crave meat frequently. My body just doesn’t ask for it.
Trying to hone in on my intuitive eating skills, I try to honor what my body asks for. And what my body asks for is lighter alternatives to animal products.
So I went on a quest to find suitable alternatives for my body and today I am sharing my favorite find with you.
I know a lot of plant-based and plant-focused people substitute meat products with soy-based alternatives. My problem with that I try my best to avoid soy-based products. I only make exceptions to this rule if I am eating out because let’s be real, if you’re celiac, finding safe gluten-free foods take the priority, all other diet choices are put on the back burner.
One day, after researching soy-free tofu alternatives, I came across a recipe for Burmese tofu. Burmese tofu is essentially chickpea tofu. I knew I had found my solution.
After a lot of recipe testing, I finally created my favorite soy-free chickpea tofu recipe!
Packed full of flavorful spices, this tofu might be a tough competitor to its soy-based relative.
