Hello, Good Guys friends,
Welcome to The Good Guys Notes #12
Today, we will share one of our favorite Vegan recipes, the Vegan Spam Musubi ala Yaya. Thanks for being here and reading our Good Guys Notes when we find the time to share something we like with you!
Take your apron and get in your kitchen if you are hungry for a good ol' Vegan Spam Musubi*.
*Note: we are using "Omnifoods" vegan steak to replace the original non-vegan SPAM, but you can easily use Tempeh, Tofu, or Seitan instead if you do not have access to Omnifoods in your part of the world.
You can look at the video to understand the process of making the final Vegan Musubi.
"Below find the recipe in images and in words (copy & paste)"

The marinated SPAM shouldn’t stick; oil the pan if you need to.
3 1/2 minutes on each side
Add the rest of the marinade throughout
Cut your regular-size NORI sheets at 2 1/2 stripes.
One sheet of Nori should provide two stripes to make two Musubis; a thin band should remain. Eat it while you cook!

Wet fingers in warm water
