Banza

It’s the chickpea pasta we love in a creamy, plant-based cheese sauce. The Banza Plant-Based Mac features a dairy-free cheddar cheese powder ready to be mixed with non-dairy milk and vegan butter—don’t mind if we do. The nutrient-dense mac and cheese contains over 12g of plant-based protein, making it a satisfying choice. Word on the street is that Banza recently launched a Plant-Based White Cheddar Mac exclusively at Whole Foods Market and online platforms.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
