Two words: Farmer’s Market. Better yet, lets make it five words: Farmer’s Markets are rockin’ awesome!

If you want to [frame title=”Farmers-market” href=”” src=”https://cdn.powerofpositivity.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Farmers-Market-ingredients-recipe.jpg” width=”250″ height=”150″ type=”right” alt=”farmer-market”] take charge of knowing where your food comes from, what better way than to meet the people who grew it? Here in my town we have “Market Night” on Thursdays, with a complete produce and food section. On Saturdays there’s the local farmers market, which i really enjoy. I like to head down to the farmer’s market and pick up a few items then come up with a dish based on what I’ve just bought. This is a totally fun way to eat!

My latest farmer’s market creation: The Heirloom Tomato, Tofu, and Bacon Avocado Stack.

Heirloom tomatoes are the quintessential apex of tomato flavor in my book. Each type has it’s own unique, delicious taste. The Bacon avocado is a type of avocado that is super soft and buttery, making the perfect start for a spread. I also added a chimchurri that I had made a few days prior to this, along with just a dollop of vegenaise, for a luscious spread to add to this plant-based Neapolitan.

Now the Tofu… What can one say about tofu? I like to eat tofu occasionally because it’s a high protein source and quite adaptable in my dishes. I used extra firm organic sprouted tofu in this recipe because it has a great texture and flavor.


Heirloom Tomato

Sprouted extra firm Tofu
Red Chile Flakes
ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) – I like it better than the red wine vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive oil
Veganaise – Original

So get down to your local farmer’s markets to meet the farmers and their families. Eat seasonal and eat hardy. Fresh food from the farm to your plate is definitely rockin’ awesome!

He enrolled in a local culinary program where the fire, knives, and "center of the plate" caught his eye. He quickly found that the benefits of raw plant based nutrition would become a part of his life that would not only transform him physically but in a process of evolution, begin a spiritual transformation as well. Tauting the many attributes and healing virtues of a vegan diet, he began a self training and experimentation with the many foods and dietary medicines . Over the next 12 years, Everett began to settle into his own personal style of cooking and creating. "TC" (Tatted Chef) Style is a combination of raw, juiced, blended, and cooked plantbased cuisine that allows for fun, down to earth and easily enjoyable methods, while embracing a plant powered lifestyle. In his words,"Keep bein' ROCKINAWESOME!!, Love is All". This means to apply what your own body has to tell you and live life fully in the Light and LOVE, positively creating and moving in the direction that best serves you.
