“I am not a vegan, but I do enjoy making and eating vegan dishes. Tofu is one of the proteins I appreciate for the most because it's not only delicious, it's versatile. And that never more true than with my pumpkin mole. The rich pumpkin flavor blended with the spices and chiles makes this tofu and Spanish rice a party in your mouth.” - Cat Cora
