Vancity Virtual Potluck: Vegan Beer Chow Mein & Tofu

This is an update of an old post because I went to re-shoot the photos of this dish for the never-coming cookbook I’m working on (joking!) and I was so embarrassed by the old post that I felt like it deserved a do-over. Plus what better reason than for the Vancity Virtual Potluck? It’s a…
