So please, can anyone think of vegan alternatives to these three foods? How does one marinate tofu without these ingredients? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Sent by MarleneEditor: Marlene, that's a rough situation! Our sympathies really go out to you, and we certainly hope that you find relief from the migraines along with good ways of enjoying the foods you love.
It seems like you have to avoid acid in general (citrus, vinegar) — is this correct? If so, can you still have wine? We wonder about some flavorful yet not too acidic white wine marinades. Also, can you still have lemon zest? You can experiment with flavored salts and sugars, rubbing a bit of lemon oil or zest into the salt to give you that bright, acidic flavor that your dishes need.
Readers, do you have any thoughts or advice for Marlene?
