Veganuary aims to help consumers who are curious about vegan products by providing recipes, shopping tips, and restaurant guides meant to help individuals transition to a plant-based diet. In light of the concerns that the coronavirus has highlighted regarding the dangers of eating animal products, more and more consumers and restaurants are consciously seeking out a more vegan-focused diet.
Alec Baldwin, actor and Veganuary supporter, endorses the idea that this is the perfect time for people to try Veganuary: "During the pandemic, we have cooked all our meals at home and have moved to a completely plant-based diet in this house. When you prepare your own food, it's interesting how your tastes change. And any animal products become less appetizing when you prepare them, from start to finish, yourself."
Major national and regional brands, retailers, and restaurants, including Yelp, Mendocino Farms, Tofurky, Follow Your Heart, Violife, and dozens more, will join Veganuary by offering promotions, giveaways, and special menu items, while creating specialized marketing campaigns for plant-based products. Sign up to be a part of Veganuary by visiting veganuary.com!

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.
