How to Throw the Perfect Vegan St. Patrick's Day Party

How to Throw the Perfect Vegan St. Patrick's Day Party

St. Patrick's Day can be a great time to introduce people to vegan food and drinks. Before you send out an invitation, start with a plan. The first step is to think about when you are going to have a party. Are you going to have it on St. Patrick's Day or the Friday or Saturday after St. Patrick's Day? Where are you going to have it? Are you going to have it at your house, a bar, or a park? Then think about who and how many people you are going to invite. What are people going to do while they are at the party? Write a list of activities including games, watching a movie, dancing, listening to music, eating, and socializing.

Vegan Tofu Recipes

 Tofu is made from soybeans, water and a coagulant, or curdling agent. It is high in protein and calcium and well known for its ability to absorb new flavors through spices and marinades. Due to its chameleon-like qualities and nutritional value, tofu, a staple of Asian cuisines for hundreds of years, has recently become popular in Western vegetarian cooking. So popular, in fact, that it is celebrated with its own annual festival and has almost become synonymous with veganism itself. Look for tofu in the produce section of your regular grocery store.
