I feel like I should begin this post with a warning for all ice cream lovers. So here it is: Warning! Try this vegan ice cream and you are going to be hooked! And I mean that. Period. Ok! I’ve done my duty! Big sigh. Now we can move on.
I have loved ice cream for as long as I can remember. I couldn’t have been more than six or seven and I remember trying to choose a flavor at a local ice cream parlor. I ended up choosing the bubble gum flavor and because I was so cute (actually terribly skinny and hungry-looking) the server decided I needed a double scoop. Despite all the adorable gum balls in it, I ended up thinking that it tasted horrible (maybe I was a bit of a food snob even then) and though I tried hard to finish it, I couldn’t even get close.

It’s a fact. This pasta salad is a favorite. Even people that tell me they don’t normally like pasta salad love this pasta salad! I’ve served it at burger cookouts (yes mine were veggie), baby showers, potlucks, wedding showers, picnics by the lake…and…(drum roll please)…..it was even served at my wedding!!!

This recipe brings back childhood memories. We called it ‘Orange French Toast’. And I liked it just as much today when my kiddos were eating it for their breakfast as I did when I was their age (that just seems like decades ago – oh, actually it was!). I guess some good things never get old (wish I wasn’t! 😉 ). The really great thing about it is what it doesn’t have: refined sugar, added oil, dairy or eggs. What it DOES have is even better: raw cashews, a banana, medjool dates, and 100% O.j. concentrate.

It all started when I saw them… Those mini street-taco tortillas. I mean, isn’t the grocery store a great place to fall in love? And day-dream? 😉 Fellow shoppers were probably eyeing me strangely as I contemplated what these were going to be. Little palm sized bombs of flavor – like you would buy at the beach in Belize! Somehow I finished shopping and got home and then the real magic happened. And now vegan baked tofu street tacos can be part of your dreams too! Ohhh, yes!
