But what exactly are they, and where do you get them?

I haven’t found soy curls in any of the stores where I live, but fortunately they are available online from Amazon. I am including affiliate links below for your convenience so you can purchase them easily. I recommend trying a bag, and if you like them, you can save a lot of money by buying a pack of six.

Butler Soy Curls are textured non-GMO soybeans. All you need to do is rehydrate them in warm water for 10 minutes, squeeze out the water, then use in your favorite recipes.

I like to keep a few bags on hand for fast and easy meals. Sometimes I simply cook them with Annie’s Naturals Organic Original BBQ Sauce. Or I might use Organic Tamari for stir fry or Cholula Hot Sauce and lime juice for tacos.

Do you crave more raw fruit and vegetables when the weather is warm? I know I do!

During the last heat wave, instead of turning to my usual Tropical Chickpea Salad, I decided to create raw tacos using some of my favorite produce: strawberries, tomatoes, mango, and avocado, plus some fresh herbs.

If you’re not sure how to cut a mango, check out the video in my post for Mango Avocado Salsa to learn an easy way to do it.

Before we get started, I want to share with you a kitchen tool I have been using almost daily.

(This post may contain affiliate links for your convenience. If you make a purchase after clicking an affiliate link, I will earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thank you for your support!)

I love using fresh herbs like basil, cilantro and mint in recipes, but sometimes it’s tricky and time-consuming to chop them.

That’s why I am so excited about these Herb Scissors!

Check this out…all you need to do is pile up your herbs and cut them with scissors that have five blades on each side instead of one. And this tool even comes with a little tool to remove the cut herbs from the blades and also makes cleaning the scissors quick and easy.

I normally don’t like to have a ton of gadgets filling up my kitchen drawers, but these Herb Scissors are definitely worth owning and make me want to add more fresh herbs to my meals because it’s just so easy!

Now that you know my trick for chopping herbs, let’s get going with the recipe for Raw Strawberry Mango Avocado Tacos.

Yields 1-2 servings

One of the things I hear the most from people becoming vegan or vegetarian is that they miss sushi. Obviously there are lots of vegetable options, like these 30 Veggie Sushi Recipes, but some miss the taste of fish, like that in a spicy tuna roll.

That’s where Sophie’s Kitchen comes in.

Sophie’s makes an amazing variety of plant-based, non-GMO products that taste just like fish and seafood, but without the cholesterol or mercury.

I visited their booth at Natural Products Expo West and sampled their Vegan Toona, which they had made into toona salad and served on crackers. It tasted surprisingly like the tuna salad I grew up eating.

Spicy Toona Rolls
Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sushi rice
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. agave
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 can Sophie's Kitchen Vegan Toona (Sea Salt or Black Pepper)
  • 1/4 cup Sriracha Mayo (I used Hampton Creek Sriracha Just Mayo) or your favorite vegan mayo mixed with Sriracha, to taste
  • 4-5 sheets nori (roasted seaweed)
  • Vegetables cut in strips such as avocado, carrot, and/or cucumber (I used avocado)
  • Toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • Sriracha (optional)

Method

  1. Prepare the rice according to package directions. Transfer the cooked rice to a large glass bowl and carefully fold in the vinegar, agave, and salt. Do not over mix the rice. Allow the rice to cool at room temperature covered with a damp dish cloth or paper towel.
  2. Drain the toona and use a fork to put the contents in a bowl. Stir in the Sriracha mayo.
  3. Place the nori on a sushi mat and top with a layer of rice. Add the spicy toona mxture and vegetables and roll. Slice into 8 pieces.
  4. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Top the rolls with toasted sesame seeds and Sriracha, if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

If you've never made sushi rolls at home, watch some YouTube videos to learn the technique before you start. It's not too difficult once you try it a few times, and your rolls will still taste great even if they don't look perfect.

Have you tried Lean Greens?

This superfoods green powder has been sold in the United Kingdom for several years and is now available in the United States (and you can get a 15% discount–see below).

Even though I try to eat a lot of green vegetables every day, sometimes it’s difficult to get enough if I’m busy and not able to prepare my own food at home. I was curious to try this super greens supplement and was generously sent some from the company to review.

Lean Greens contains spinach, wheat grass, barley grass, alfalfa, chlorella, carrot, spirulina, broccoli, blueberries, black currents, digestive enzymes, ginseng, and green tea.

I was particularly interested in how this green powder would taste because in the past when I’ve tried taking spirulina, a blue-green algae, I found it unpleasant. If you’re not familiar with this superfood, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and antioxidants that can help protect cells from damage. It contains nutrients, including B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and gamma linolenic acid (an essential fatty acid).”

Fortunately, Lean Greens is easy to drink, even simply mixed with water!

But my favorite way to consume it is to add it to my morning smoothie.

I added a scoop to my favorite chocolate smoothie, and it didn’t change the taste of it at all.

I have been using Lean Greens for the past week in the mornings, and I’ve noticed that I stay fuller longer, and don’t always need a snack before lunch. And I have piece of mind knowing that even if I fall short on vegetables later in the day, I’ve started the morning off right, even when I start with a delicious chocolate smoothie!
