$ IN THE QUEST TO LOSE FAT, GAIN MUSCLE AND INCREASE STAMINA Chef Sharon Experiments With Known Methods To Draw Her Own Conclusions – includes reduced-fat and fat-free recipes with lots of motivational insights.
You can use this simple, semi-raw, green tofu chop as an appetizer spread for crackers, a salad in a lettuce cup or as a spread on a sandwich or hot dog bun with a mustard squirt and dusted with smoked paprika. I also mix it with salad greens and a semi-sweet vinaigrette for a soft/crunchy texture addition to the greens. Nice!
Okay, so I didn’t meet expectations regarding the AFC RAPID FAT-LOSS DIET, but Steve thought I put myself on a solid path to lose more and I agree. So that meant a dinner party for two for lunch. It was a surprise. All I knew was we had to take a bus – a nice one that travels fast. I thought maybe we were going downtown for Impossible burgers, but we stopped midway at Don’s Lighthouse.
He knew they only served a vegan main dish for dinner, so called in advance and the chef said he’d be happy to make it for lunch. I was in animal-free heaven. I’m so accustomed to eating side dishes prepared by people who don’t want to prepare anything absent the animal. This was a joy. The service was beautiful. The wine excellent. It’s been a while since I had a Vouvray. Even dessert. Vegan? Yea! Tripe orange sorbet. Once I discovered they had chocolate syrup by Hershey that was vegan I was all set. A shot of the Vouvray over the sorbet and chocolate was divine. A perfect meal that deserved a congratulatory comment to the chef face to face.
We use Tofu Pups for the spam and Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard in place of the traditional veggie mayo. Two types of tofu plus celery, scallion, green pepper with curry, fennel, garlic and cilantro! Nice!
Essentially fat-free salad or sandwich spread. Tastes like ham and egg. Also tastes great all by itself. If you want to add a little fat, then a couple tablespoons of veg mayo will work nicely. But we’re trimming the fat, so it really isn’t necessary to enjoy!
Now get ready for something different, okay? We’re going beyond the fat, which means there is a world out there that hasn’t been seen yet – not by me anyway – and judging by all I’ve read, not by anybody else either. So get ready to be wowed. Don’t be looking for the old Caesar here. It’s gone. But when it left, look what opened up!
Serves 2 for me (yes, I ate 2 servings – so good, couldn’t help myself!)
