[day 8] Matt's Omnivore Opinion - BBQ Tofu
The barbecue tofu is not prepared as a meat substitute, meaning that it doesn't try to look or taste like meat, which might scare off fellow omnivores, but meat doesn't always have to be the main course of a meal and vegan dishes don't always have to include mock meats; and I'm perfectly fine with that. The tofu is nice and thick with a barbecue flavoring; it also fills you up, which is a problem I find with some Vegan meals. I'm not a food connoisseur, so all I can say is that it tastes great and if you enjoy tofu you'll like it; and if you're not a sheltered eater you should take a chance on GOOD vegan food.
The side dish is vegan macaroni and cheese. Obviously it's not real cheese. It's different from your boxed macaroni and cheese; it's not as runny or thin. If you ever eaten home made macaroni and cheese then you'll love the Vegan version.
I know I may have not gotten into extreme detail but I'm no expert food reviewer, so all I can say is I approve of this vegan meal for all non-Vegans and for all meat eaters. Meat eaters especially shouldn't act afraid of vegan food when it's just as, if not more healthy than what you (and I) eat on a day-to-day basis. - Matt
BBQ Tofu From The Slow Cooker

Layer cubed tofu and BBQ sauce in slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-5 hours!
The mac & cheeze is courtesy of the old recipe found on Get Sconed! which seems to be removed! I hope it is posted again - it is tasty!
