Here is something for all the times you feel like you need an healthy break and all the vitamins you can pack in a plate to help you fight the winter germs... I know, this year it's been a tough one!
This salad has it all. The peppery green (baby arugula) and the nutrient-rich grain (quinoa is high in protein, fiber, anti-oxidants, magnesium, vitamin B, iron ... and so much more). It has juicy orange slices, tangy cranberries and crunchy almonds. All in one heavenly bowl.

Vegan Tofu Banana Bread

This vegan tofu banana bread is so moist and soft that you wouldn't even guess that it's made with no eggs nor dairy

Take a look at what I baked over the weekend. You might say this looks just like your usual, perfectly dense and moist banana bread loaded with crunchy walnuts. But noooo. Today I've got a special recipe for you. Even though this looks (and tastes) just the same, it's a VEGAN tofu banana bread. Oh yeah, you heard me right. There are no eggs, no milk, no yogurt in this baby. What I used is a whole box of Soft Mori-Nu Silken Tofu and three extra large and extra ripe bananas to make this extra moist and extra tender sweet bread. 
Sorry, I just cannot stop myself from using this word. I'm just EXTRA excited after experimenting  with tofu in a dessert for the first time, and tasting how good this turned out.

But who really needs excuses when we are dealing with French macarons?!? There's nothing more perfect than this elegant, delicate and exquisite cookie. Especially if it comes in a pink and sparkly, heart shape and raspberry flavor.
