Soyfoods Giveaway

April is National Soyfoods Month and I partnered with the Soyfoods Association to bring you this giveaway.

Included in the giveaway:

Westbrae Original Soymilk and SoyDreams new Almond, Cashew & Hazelnut Drink

One box of SoyJoy Bars

Five coupons for WholeSoy & Co. Yogurt

Did you know that:

Soyfoods are rich in nutrients and promote healthy eating.

Soyfoods are also a great source of iron, fiber, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc.

Fruit soy smoothies with soymilk or soy yogurt are a fun way to ensure proper calcium, and soy burgers or soy crumbles in place of ground beef are a great way to reduce calories, cholesterol and saturated fast.

Soy meat substitutes, such as soy ground, cook up in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional meats, and it’s ideal for pre-made meals that can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator.

Cooking with soy also provides an excellent opportunity for families to spend quality time together because unlike traditional meats, there is little concern about cooking through or cross contamination, so kids can be more involved in the meal preparation.

Soyfoods make delicious meals. They are great as a staple ingredient or used as a substitute in a favorite recipe.

Here are some of my favorite recipes using soy:

Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu

Pumpkin Honey Tofu. This turns out like spongy pumpkin “bread”. Very soft, chewy, and pliable infused with pumpkin flavor.

Here’s a post with Tofu Preparation & Cooking Tips for how to create bread-like tofu, crispy tofu, firm tofu, and other preparation tips.

Apple Glazed Vegetable & Edamame Stir Fry

Mango Ginger Maple Tofu

Spinach & Artichoke Dip (Fat Free, Vegan) Use soy-based cream cheese

Fig Butter & Cumin Tempeh Stir Fry – This was a 4 minute meal. Tempeh is so versatile and no pressing (or cooking if you’re really in a hurry) is required.

Salsa Verde Pepperjack Tofu (Microwave & Vegan) Use soy-based cheese along with the tofu

Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries Use soy-based cream cheese

    I’ve been making my own homemade Soy Milk for about a year but the past few months I’ve taken a break and purchased nut milks and soy. This past week I’ve started back making my own but I’m trying Flax Milk which is the cheapest of all. I want to try this brand but to be honest, I get what is organic and on sale usually.

    I love tofu! Anyway u cook it but my favorite way is to grind some almond into almost powder and dip the tofu in a bit of almond milk and cover with powder then pan fry with coconut oil! They turn a nice golden brown and they taste crispy and delicious!! They r perfect with some sautéed bell peppers and quinoa.
