    Crispy Peanut Tofu (V)

    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.

One might think that I would have gotten sick of eating chickpeas while I was over there, but I feel as though the exact opposite happened! Now that I am home, I just want to eat more chickpeas! As I mentioned in my other post, Baked Chickpeas, chickpeas are such a great source of protein!  All our meals were Kosher while in…
