Joy of Soy

Let's skip the dairy, but not the protein.
Soy is a dairy-free source of high quality protein.
It is extremely versatile and can be used as an alternative to dairy in many types of recipes.
Tofu (soybean curd) readily absorbs marinades and seasonings and comes in a range of textures (soft to extra firm).There a variety of soy-based products (like patties, "chicken" strips, and "beef style" crumbles) that have allergens such as wheat, dairy, and egg added. As always, check these products before using.

Soy Dinner Options:
1- Tacos (veggie crumbles w taco seasonings, shredded salad, salsa,)
2- Tofu Stir fry ( extra firm tofu cubes stir fried w favorite vegetables like onion, zucchini, red peppers, mushrooms)
3- Levana's borekas (eggfree)
