Vegan Mofo #18 Tamari Tofu with Edamame

Still not up to par. So, I figured something light and mild on the stomach would be better than nothing at all. I decided some Japanese rice, edamame with umeboshi vinegar, baked tamari tofu topped with furikake. If you do decide to use furikake, make sure you read the label to check for bonito. You want one without bonito or you can leave the furikake off and just add sesame seeds and cut up nori. Enjoy!
