  • 1/4 C low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 C cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 C carrots, fine julienne
  • 2 C purple cabbage, thinly sliced on a mandolin
  • 2 C bean sprouts
  • 1 1/2 C frozen corn kernels, thawed and drained
  • 2 to 3 green onions, sliced thinly lengthwise (about 2-inches long)
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 packages large size spring roll pastry, defrosted (40 sheets)

POMEGRANATE SWEET & SOUR SAUCE (MAKES ABOUT 2 CUPS)

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp garlic
  • 1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 C pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 C unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water

instructions

  1. Make the tofu bacon first, or make it ahead of time. Drain the tofu from the packaging water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut it into spears or thin shoe string pieces. Combine the low-sodium soy sauce or tamari, maple syrup, liquid smoke, and smoked paprika with a whisk in a wide shallow dish. Place tofu in the marinade and set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the tofu slices in an even layer and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, flipping halfway through the bake time. If there is excess marinade you can brush it on the pieces of tofu halfway through baking when flipping the pieces.
  3. In the meantime, cook the ramen noodles in a pot of boiling water for about 3 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain from the cooking water and do not rinse ramen noodles. In a mixing bowl, combine vegetable oil, miso paste, sesame oil, and low-sodium soy sauce and combine until smooth. Add the cooked ramen noodles and cilantro and toss to evenly coat.
  4. Set the noodles aside with all of the other pre-cut vegetables and tofu bacon.
  5. To make the sweet and sour sauce, heat a saucepan over medium-low heat with vegetable oil. Once hot, add garlic and minced ginger. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Add pomegranate juice, rice vinegar, sugar, low-sodium soy sauce, sea salt, ground black pepper, and chili flakes and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, which takes about 3 minutes over medium heat. Make a cornstarch slurry by mixing water and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth.
  7. Once the sauce comes to a low simmer, whisk in the cornstarch slurry and turn the heat down slightly. Stir and cook for another 3 minutes while whisking constantly until thickened and glossy. You can set it aside while you assemble and deep fry the spring rolls.
  8. To make the spring rolls, combine cornstarch with water to make a thin slurry. Ensure you've defrosted your spring roll pastry in the fridge overnight. Place the stack of pastry sheets on a plate covered with a damp tea towel and have a clean surface ready to roll the spring rolls on.
  9. It’s best to use 2 sheets per roll to prevent tearing. Place sheets in front of you in a diamond formation. Add 1/4 cup of ramen noodles in the lower third of the corner closest to you. Then add tofu bacon, cabbage, carrot, green onion, bean sprouts, and corn kernels.
  10. Roll the bottom corner over the filling, gently tucking it underneath and make one full roll over. Then fold each side over and into the center and continue rolling. Wet the top corner with the cornstarch slurry and as you roll it over, smooth it out with a finger so it sticks to the side of the spring roll, sealing it well.
  11. You can make all the spring rolls and place finished rolls a baking sheet or plate covered with a damp towel in one layer before deep frying.
  12. When you’re nearly done rolling all the spring rolls, add the 2 to 3 cups of vegetable oil to a heavy-bottomed pot or deep fryer. There should be at least 2 inches of oil to fully submerge the rolls while frying. Heat it to 365°F to 375°F on a deep frying thermometer, or on the dial on your deep fryer.
  13. Fry spring rolls in batches of 3 to 4 rolls for about 5 minutes until light golden brown. You may need to flip them during the frying time. Remove them with a slotted frying spoon and place onto paper towel on a plate or baking sheet. Continue deep frying in batches, ensuring your oil is at the right temperature before adding the next spring rolls to the oil.
  14. The spring rolls should remain hot while you fry all of the rolls. Slice them in half and serve immediately with the sweet and sour dipping sauce. They’re best served immediately, but if you have leftovers and you want to reheat these you can place them on a baking sheet and heat through in an oven preheated to 375°F.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
