It seems like every day there’s another statement from a historically white led organization (HWL) stating that they “stand with BLM.” Overall, it is good that there is a swell of consciousness and awareness of systemic racism among HWLs. There are many white leaders out there who are really paying attention with heightened urgency and truly want to make change. In the grand scheme of things, this has the potential to be such an impactful shift of our NPO sector to really identify and uproot racism in our systems.
I’m a vegetarian, so I’m always on the hunt (pun intended) for plant-based protein sources. I use tofu when I want to really taste the ingredients of a marinade or allow the other flavors to shine, since tofu does a great job of carrying whatever else is around it. When I use Soyrizo (a vegetarian chorizo), I know that everything else in the dish will bow to its intense flavor. But, when I want to create a balanced flavor profile, I use Field Roast because it carries its own flavor while allowing the rest of the ingredients to gently follow and be amplified in turn.
