Day 25: Friday Lunch Treat

Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu

Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu

Friday lunchtime I decided to treat myself with a visit to a new Asian takeway in my area call Joyhut.  It opened its doors for the first time a couple of months ago and I’ve made one previous visit just for a simple stir-fried vegetable dish which was nice but very basic. I’d been eyeing off the Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu on the menu so that was my first pick and I went with the vegetarian black bean noodles to follow. The tofu was amazing! I’d always loved salt and pepper calamari in my seafood eating days so this was a very pleasant surprise. Beautifully spiced and delicately crispy without being overly greasy, it was just what I had been hoping for.

The vegetarian noodles were also delicious with plenty of flavour in the black bean sauce. I only managed to eat half of the serving after scoffing the tofu first. Oh well, more for later :) I will definitely be returning to Joyhut – plenty of tasty options for diets of all persuasions, great value and just around the corner :)

I was a vegetarian years ago when I was much younger, but it didn't stick the first time around. Relationships, apathy, lack of choices all influenced my slide back into eating meat. In early 2011, I heard about a book called "Eating Animals" by Jonathan Safran Foer and immediately got myself a copy. Reading about the horrendous conditions factory farmed animals are forced to live under for their scarily short lives, really made me question whether I wanted to be a part of this going forward. A quarter of the way into the book my decision was made. I know my vegetarianism isn't going to change the world; my husband is a carnivore through and through and I don't expect that will change any time soon. I do however feel that most people would like to make more ethical choices concerning the food they eat, the coffee they drink, the restaurants they dine at etc. Many just don’t know where to start, which labelling to trust on food packaging, or just find it all too hard. So I'm here to share my own journey and to also learn from others who have made this lifestyle choice. Thanks for stopping by :)
