For the love of Cows

“Aw they’re just so cute.”

That’s what my mom would say anyway, along with a long list of very reason why animals are not food. Not only is my mother a herbivore, she doesn’t eat animal products either, that means no:

eggs dairy cheeses honey etc.

making her a vegan.

Now I on the other hand, I am a carnivore. I think it started as a teenager spiting her mother who ingrained vegetarianism in to my head and stuck as habit,  I prefer my burgers rare. Perhaps if she had not so avidly tried to convert me I may be a vegan today, however this is not the case.

Aside from my juvenile rebellion against my mother I do love me some vegan food. Where others crave chicken soup for a little comfort food, I crave tofu noodle soup. So, in honor of my mother, the recipe today is vegan! This is a really simple, delicious, one pan recipe and I actually prefer it a couple days later when the flavors have really had time to marinate! This is a great dish to make on Sunday and bring to work for lunch. I brought it as a snack to the beach this past summer and it got passed down the line of beach chairs until there wasn’t any left!

the boys, mind you i was in the middle of the line up!
