Pinto bean tacos
Place a can of pinto beans (425 g) with 3/4 cup of mild salsa into a pot and set aside. Meanwhile, tear one heart of romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces. Heat the bean and salsa mixture on the stovetop until warm. Place the mixture into eight, organic corn taco shells. Top each with lettuce, diced avocado and a dollop of Toffuti Sour Supreme.
Broccoli baked potatoes
Prick four medium-sized russet potatoes with a fork several times. Bake in the oven until tender and wrap with aluminum foil to keep warm. In a pot of boiling water, blanche a package of frozen broccoli (450 g) and place immediately into ice water. Drain, and place the broccoli into a pot with two tablespoons of non-dairy butter. Heat on medium until the butter is melted, and broccoli coated. Split the potatoes and top with the broccoli mixture, a spoonful of Toffuti Sour Supreme and fresh pepper to taste.
Fill eight popsicle moulds with your favourite flavour of slightly-softened Tofutti Premium non-dairy frozen dessert. Insert a wooden popsicle stick into each and freeze until hard. Meanwhile, in a heat-proof bowl over a pan of simmering water, or a double boiler, melt 250 g dark chocolate and cool until room temperature. Dip the pops into the chocolate one at time. For enhanced flavour, try also dipping them into sprinkles or crushed nuts. Place into a Styrofoam block, and freeze for two hours.
