Year one of my vegan journey, you could not pay me to eat cold tofu out of a package. Fast forward to almost year three and I can’t get enough! If you are experimenting with cold tofu, let this be your first go-round. It’s packed with so much flavor and protein (secretly)! Not to mention you can whip this up in 10 minutes or less!   Credit: Reprinted with permission from Blk + Vegan by Emani Corcran. Page Street Publishing Co. 2023. Photo credit: Monika Normand.
