When someone wants to make the shift to go vegan, vegetarian, or simply eat less meat, they commonly think of using tofu. This block of soy can be really intimidating, though, making it seem hard to find tasty ways to use it.
Don’t be scared: Tofu is awesome, supremely diverse, and anything but bland! Since it’s extremely porous, it absorbs whatever flavors you are cooking with like a sponge, which makes for delicious stir-fries and curries. It can also be added to smoothies, act as a cream, or even replace eggs or cheese. Try some of my favorite vegan recipes, and you’ll see how yummy tofu can be.
*For any recipe that calls to drain the tofu, place the block between two large plates and set a heavy pot top on the top plate. Allow the liquid to drain for at least an hour.
