By McDonald, T.   |  Date 29th of April 2024 Although I'm not a great chocolate fan, occasionally, I do like some brownies.  I also like apples, so when I found this recipe, I just had to give it a go.  The original used 2 eggs, which I have to change; thus, I went for flax egg.

Apple and Tofu Salad with Bang Bang dressing

Written by McDonald, T.   |  Date 12th of June 2023  Sometimes I like to watch the calories to maintain a healthy weight. With this in mind, salad seems like a good idea.  However, this is a salad with a difference.  The sweet taste of the apple combined with the spicy sriracha and bang bang sauce is something else!
