This post is brought to you by Woolworths
Now first of all I have to tell you that retro daddy has been buying products from the Macro Vegetarian range before I even got the brief for this post. And we’ve been loving them. So talk about a perfect blog post to write. Each week we always have some tofu in our shopping trolley and some sort of vegetarian product like a burger/sausage or something for daddy and the kids that is quick and easy. In this house meals have to be quick, easy and healthy. Oh and they have to be something that I know people will eat.
Eggplant & Lentil Ball wraps
And most of our dinners are vegetarian as I was vegetarian for such a big part of my life that it’s how I like to eat and what I know to cook. Now once upon a time I bought most of my tofu from the asian grocer because when I came back from living in London I was a bit disappointed in the range of products at the supermarket. These days things have improved and the range of vegie products is always growing. Mind you I still can get a bit confused if I’m at a new supermarket and am not sure where to find the tofu or vegie sausages in the chilled section.
Tofu, tamari & almond stir fry
The Macro Vegetarian range has around 30 new products to start with and we found these ones easily in the Woolies chilled section. I got to have a play around with a few delicious things from the range and make up some super easy recipes for you lovely people out there. I’ve made them quick and easy to prepare, nutritious and balanced. When you’re eating a vegetarian diet or even if you’re not vegetarian it’s important to have a nice balanced meal.
But don’t worry! You don’t have to be vegetarian to try these recipes and I’ve written them up assuming you haven’t cooked with these products before. I often get asked how do you cook with tofu or what tofu should I buy so I loved making up a delicious stir fry with the Macro Vegetarian Firm Tofu and I’ll show you how I get my tofu just right.
Vegie & Avocado Burgers
oh and if I had to pick a favourite…………….well for me it’s a close tie between the Eggplant and lentil ball wraps and the Tofu stir fry. But daddy and the kids loved the burgers and sausages so I think we’ve covered all bases with these recipes.
So you’ll find my four recipe cards here and if you’d like to try a few more recipes then Woolies has brought out great little recipe cards that you can pick up instore. My recipes all passed with flying colours here so I know you’ll be able to try them out at your house too AND they have the added bonus of being good for you too.
And don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Macro Vegetarian products the next time you’re at Woolies…..you can think of me as you walk past the range instore.
