    Mushroom and Walnut Vegan Bolognese

    I will be honest, I don’t have a ton of experience with vegan cooking. However, every time that I have ever made a vegan recipe, I have loved it. Vegan Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese – AMAZING! Black Bean Brownies – so good! Cooking vegan requires a little additional thought and creativity. When I am normally cooking, if something doesn’t taste quite right there are so many non-vegan easy solutions. Add butter.  If you need a quick protein, add chicken.

    Before we even begin to discuss this INCREDIBLE Crispy Peanut Tofu, I must give MAJOR credit to the amazing and fabulous, Lindsay Ostrom, the powerhouse behind one of my FAVORITE food blogs, Pinch of Yum. This recipe was completely and totally inspired by Lindsay’s recipe for Sesame Zoodles with Crispy Tofu.

And I have eaten it for pretty much every meal – because seriously, the Crispy Peanut Tofu IS that good. I have enjoyed it over zoodles (as suggested by Lindsay!),…
