IMG_5714

I thought I’d take a break from the all the sugary treats I’ve been sharing (don’t worry I’ll be reviewing more summery sweets very soon) to introduce a new product that I absolutely love, that’s semi-local to me, and is delicious! Plus, who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashioned recipe, right?

You might recall my post about Hodo Soy from April where I raved about this fabulous company and their Spicy Yuba Strips and shared a recipe for vegan Mango Stir Fry. Hodo Soy, a great organic tofu company out of Oakland, California, continues to steal my little vegan, tofu-loving heart. Today I am featuring my love of their Tofu Skins. Like Yuba, I hadn’t heard of Tofu Skins until recently and let me tell you they are delicious! Go get your hands on some as soon as you can, and if you are a lover of spring rolls, you are certain to love this gluten free, non-dairy, nut-free, egg-free and of course totally vegan recipe. Get your spring roll on!
