Ultimate Vegan Guide to Disney California Adventure

California Adventure is pretty much the same as Disneyland, in the sense that, you might not expect them to have a lot of vegan food choices, but they actually do. Modifications may be necessary for some of them, but there are a lot more options than just salads and fruit cups. And just remember, if you’re ever unsure about a certain item, just be sure to check with a cast member, or check labels.

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.
