Spicy Asian Tofu Broccoli Stir-Fry🧡 . Press 1-14oz pack extra-firm tofu between kitchen towels to remove excess liquid. Cut into about 1-1/2 inch cubes. Bake at 400F until golden and slightly crispy, about 15 minutes. Cut bite-size florets from 1 head broccoli and steam lightly until just tender Mix sauce: whisk 3 tbsp low-sodium tamari/soy sauce, 3 tbsp hot sauce, 3 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil (or to taste). Sauté 2 tbsp minced ginger, 4 minced garlic cloves and 2 sliced red chili peppers (optional) in sesame (or neutral) oil about 30 seconds until fragrant. Add lightly steamed broccoli florets and cook a couple more minutes, adding more broth or oil as needed. Add baked tofu and mix. Stir in sauce while continuing to heat until sauce is warmed through. Serve immediately. #vegan #plantbased #veganfood #vegetarian #crueltyfree #organic #govegan #glutenfree #healthyfood #food #healthy #vegansofig #foodporn #foodie #whatveganseat #veganlife #vegano #love #healthylifestyle #veganism #fitness #veganfoodshare #natural #veganrecipes #health #instafood #dairyfree #vegansofinstagram #skincare #bhfyp

Nothing says “you complete me” better than a dish of rice and stir-fried veggies. @veganteam101 presents this lovely vegan meal, a perfectly-balanced bowl that shows broccoli, tofu and rice in harmony. The best relationships are ones where all parties respect and value each other equally. This dish feels like it embodies the primary tenets of a great relationship. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!



What is it that they say? “Three words, eight letters, say it and I’m yours?” Imagine it in food form, and you’ve got  @ggzatter’s zucchini, mushroom and pesto delight complete with pesto. The austerity of this vegan dish belies the quality and presentation. Like a declaration of love, this three-piece meal is special and should be cherished.

A smoothie bowl is never a bad idea 😍 @healthyselfco #vegan

On with the desserts! This sweet smoothie bowl by @wellness_gem is just the right kind of vegan dessert dish to enjoy with your special someone. Imagine taking turns spoon feeding each other this splendid selection of grains and cream, basking in each other’s presence in this season of hearts. Ah, what a wonderful image.



Our final vegan Valentine’s day pick is by @plantcraft_, presenting an evocative set of red, heart-shaped pancakes colored with beet juice and decorated with juicy strawberries. The second dessert for today’s selection does not disappoint, with its artful presentation and stunning aesthetic. We would love to complete our Valentine’s day by digging into this great vegan dessert, either with our partner, loved ones or even just ourselves (because in this season of hearts, it’s also important to love yourself.)

That’s it for our Food Friday blog, the first Valentine’s Day of the new decade. Be sure to tune in next week for more great vegan dishes to admire. Want to join in our weekly celebration?
