Some vegans like it plain, but others like it spicy! Personally, I like it spicy HOT!! Embracing a plant-based diet means learning to like new food items. One items that I NEVER intended to add to my diet is tofu. I simply didn't see any reason why I should add this tastless substance to a meal. Then I had an encounter with tofu that made me reconsider my reluctance to add tofu to my diet. First, it was when I had a jerk tofu wrap at Karyn's Cooked on Well Street. I missed the taste of jerk seasoning oro shall I say "jerk chicken".... don't judge me, I am just keeping it 100!! LOL. Oh how I miss jerk chicken, but the jerk tofu was quite tasty alternative and it sufficiently satisfied my craving for carribean cooking. After trying to the jerk tofu wrap I decided to experiment with tofu occassionally when I prepared food at home. Then, something wonderful happened......I tasted tofu from Phoneix Bean, LLC.
I am now a fan of this company's spicy tofu. I wanted to spice up my life and this is exactly what I needed to do that. In fact, I did a Yelp review of this company. This tofu is so tasty that I can literally eat it right out of the container! I can't believe it. During my most recent trip I reviewed a new business flyer and I noticed that my Yelp comment was on the flyer. Yea Me!
Phoneix Bean's Spicy Tofu Stirfry has become a staple in my household. Getting some of this tofu, however, is an adventure. The company is only from 9am - 3pm and you have to go directly to their manufacturing facility to get it. I travel from the North Suburbs of Chicago and it's worth the trip. A little bird told me that this container of spicy goodness can be found in some stores, but not in my area. I wonder do you need a password or need to know the right person to find out where and how to actually get it. If you know for sure have your people contact my people or simply leave a comment below. Rumor has it , that the store is located in or near Lincoln Park. I do pop in and out of the Lincoln Park area, but the location that I go to now would be a shorter trip. For this reason, I make sure that I carve out time in my schedule to spice up my life with this tofu whenever I have an opporutnity.
If you are tired of eating bland tofu dishes, I advise you to SPICE UP YOUR LIFE at Phoneix Bean!!!
