ברוכים הבאים לעוד יום של VeganMoFo, החודש של אוכל טבעוני. VeganMoFo הוא אירוע שנתי שבו בלוגרים בכל רחבי העולם להקדיש ההודעות שנכתבו עליהם למזון טבעוני במשך חודש שלם. החודש, The “V” מילה היא מקדישה ההודעות שנכתבו עליה “מוצרים טבעונים אני אוהב.” אלה הם מוצרים ששווים לכתוב על, reading about and definitely worth spreading the word about! And if any of the products inspired me to create new, delicious recipes, אני מוכן לחלוק את זה גם כן.
היום הדגש הוא על מזונות וודסטוק. Here is how I discovered Woodstock Foods. אני גר בוודסטוק, NY so when I was in Sunflower, our local natural foods market, I saw that the brand of tofu in the refrigerator case was called “Woodstock.” I thought it was a local brand, named after the town but I was wrong.
מזונות וודסטוק is a company that began selling natural and organic foods over 25 לפני שנים. They believe that “good food comes from simple ingredients farmed from sources we can trust.” Woodstock Foods began by launching their nut butters and today they offer over 250 products in over 10 categories.
יותר 70% of their products are domestically sourced and over 75% are USDA Organic. יותר 145 of Woodstock’s products are Non-GMO Project Verified with over 80 more on their way to being verified.
לאחרונה, מזונות וודסטוק teamed up with non-profit American Farmland Trust to raise awareness about the importance of preserving land for sustainable farming.
Woodstock Foods makes a lot of great products that I use in my recipes. Here are just a few of them with טרודי, The “V” Spokescow של המילה, modeling them:
Woodstock Foods also makes condiments, frozen fruits and vegetables, cranberry sauce, packaged fruits, nuts and seeds, packaged grains, relish, כרוב כבוש, snacks and my favorite product of theirs – טופו.
Let me talk to you about Woodstock Organic Extra-Firm Tofu.
This is my absolute favorite tofu in the entire world!
למה? Is it because Woodstock Foods has one of the first Non-GMO Project Verified Organic Tofus? Is it because their tofu is higher in protein and calcium than other types of tofu? ובכן, all those things are awesome but they are not the reasons why Woodstock Foods Tofu is my favorite. The reason is because it is the firmest extra-firm tofu I have ever cooked with. אני מתכוון, I could be blindfolded and have five types of tofu in front of me and I could still pick out Woodstock’s tofu in a heartbeat.
When you open the package of Woodstock tofu and drain the water, the tofu is already firmer than many other brands AFTER they get pressed! And once it is pressed, it is solid as a rock (to quote Peaches n’Herb). You can slice it as thinly as you need to. It will not tear, break or crumble. This type of consistency is important when cooking especially when you want to make tofu scallops or cutlets.
Just the other day, I had to use a block of tofu that was not Woodstock’s (GASP!). It was drained, it was pressed and it still jiggled like Jello. I needed to cut it into slices and it tore. The tofu shimmied under my knife and I think I shed a tear or two, wishing I had a Woodstock block of tofu instead. It’s that good. אה, and it tastes better than other brands too.
Look at just some of the delicious dishes I have made with Woodstock Foods Tofu:
I could go on and on because pretty much every tofu recipe I have made for the past 4 years has been made with Woodstock Foods tofu if I could help it. It’s really the best. אני מתכוון, look at this grilled tofu – look how firm this looks:
The next time you go out to buy tofu, try and find a store that carries the Woodstock Foods brand. הגעה שלהם איתור חנות למצוא קמעונאית קרובה אליך. למעשה, the next time you want to buy any products that you know are organic, non-GMO and from a company that cares, buy Woodstock Foods brand.
