We’ve partnered with Garden of Vegan, one of our favorite vegan tastemakers, to celebrate the success of our tumblr so far! For the month of December we’ll be posting original recipes featuring WestSoy deliciousness!
Tofu Vegetable Noodle Soup
Yields 2 servings.
What You’ll Need:
1/2 block firm or extra-firm tofu, cut into cubes (I recommend using WestSoy Extra-Firm Tofu)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 tbsp olive oil
3½ cups vegetable broth
3-4 medium white button mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 rib celery, thinly sliced diagonally
1 carrot, sliced into ribbons using a vegetable peeler
1/8 cup red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup packed, of chopped kale, stems removed
1/3 cup fresh or frozen peas
1-1½ cups uncooked rice noodles (approx.)
3 green onions, thinly sliced on a diagonal, for garnish
Combine the tofu, olive oil, garlic, and soy sauce in a shallow bowl or food storage container. Set the tofu and marinade aside while you clean, slice, and prepare all of the vegetable ingredients.
In a medium sized saucepan, heat 1/2 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Add the tofu along with the marinade and cook, stirring occasionally, until the tofu is golden brown.
Add the onion and celery and continue cooking until the onion appears to be transparent. Add the carrot ribbons and sliced mushrooms and cook for about 30 seconds.
Add 2½ cups of vegetable broth, turn the heat up to high and bring to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the peas and chopped kale and boil for another 2-3 minutes or until the vegetables and noodles are tender. Add more broth if necessary.
Top with thinly sliced green onion and serve!
This soup is best served immediately after it’s made. As the soup sits the rice noodles will continue to absorb the broth. If you want to save some for leftovers, strain the broth from the soup and refrigerate them separately. Add the broth back to the soup when you reheat them, you may still find that adding extra broth is necessary.
ponytailjade: Hey! I was wondering how long it took you perfect the different crossfit moves (clean jerk, snatch, etc.), or if maybe you're still in the process?

Hey! My coaches are awesome and I learned pretty quickly through the onramp. Clean and jerk I got fairly quickly, snatches took me a month or so… every move is different. I do have them mostly down now, as I’ve been Crossfitting for a year (though I haven’t been regularly lately since I’m at school and the gym is so expensive here). There’s always random times that I get even the simpler (for me, since I lifted prior to Crossfit) moves a little off and the coaches guide me a little bit (i.e. arching my back while dead lifting, but those slip-ups are lack of focus rather than not knowing the moves). But mostly, I had them down in a month of going 5 times a week.

One of my long-time friends and old teammates just told me he wants to trail run together this summer.

While I won’t be living at home (most-likely, and he is) we agreed to meet up as often as possible. I’m psyched because I need someone to run with but I’m not comfortable running with most people. He’s someone I am used to running with because we grew up doing so together, so it’ll be alright. It’ll also be great to have someone who is faster/more in shape to get pushed. I miss running with the guys.

ALSO he suggested that we go back to THE course (aka, where our state meet was held every year in high school). THE course we trained on once a season, raced once a season, feared, loved, conquered. THE course the guys became state champions on senior year. THE course with THE hill. I haven’t really thought about it as something I could go back to but it’s quite close to where I go to college and I’m thinking about trying to run it this weekend. Plus with him this summer.
