I'll eat the eggs from my parent's backyard (they have chickens that roam the acre). When the chickens lay and they don't decide to sit on the eggs, the eggs are then gathered. I'm totally fine with eating those eggs. Store bought eggs? Never in a million years. There are so many reasons why- ethically, nutritionally, environmentally, you name it and I can give you a good run down on the "why's and why nots". Or just read the book Eating Animals or The Food Revolution, both of which I highly recommend. It's so crucial that we make informed decisions in regards to our health and our food purchases- I'm not saying you have to take on some strict dietary restrictions, but I am saying it is your responsibility to make informed decisions. Anyways, I'm straying from the topic here- I made this incredible quiche for my mom's birthday, but I ended up using sprouted tofu instead of the eggs because their lazy chickens haven't laid an egg in over a month! I've always sort of turned a shoulder to the idea of a tofu quiche because it just seemed so lackluster. But turns out it was seriously incredible, with an eggy consistency, and just overall delicious. I'm actually going to eat the last bit of it for breakfast this morning once I finish this post.
Pheww, that's a mouth full! This a great dish simply because you can modify it to accommodate whatever vegetables you currently have in your fridge/freezer. In it's original form it has both savory and smokey notes with sweetness from the pesto. It's a winner, hands down.
If I can eat one thing for the rest of my life it may just be these stuffed shells. I was always skeptical about a stuffed shell that had a tofu ricotta filling but I gave it a go and now I don't think I could ever live without this. It's incredible. And perfect. And I want it nowww. Really, I do! Someone make this for me today, please!
