This is one of the first vegan dishes I tried and my first attempt at using tofu and I love it! This recipe is very versatile. You can use the tofu as crumbles and place in a salad, lettuce wrap, or sandwich. You can make “chicken” strips or nuggets. You can also fry it up in a pan to make it a bit more crispy.
I like to show off common dishes that carnivores eat all the time, when I can. Whenever I’m invited to a BBQ, chances are I’m bringing this dish. I admittedly stole this recipe from my mother and it’s a common dish that always shows up at large home functions and gatherings. This is a quick and easy dish that will show your friends and family that we as vegans eat more than just “rabbit food”!
This is one of my favorite recipes since turning veganish. I even got a few hard core carnivores to eat this during Christmas dinner. It’s an awesome combination of flavor including sweet, sour, salty with a touch of spicy. The eggplant gives a great meaty texture for those looking to substitute vegetables as a main dish.
