Vegan Tofu Recipes
Browse 9+ delicious vegan tofu recipes that are simple to prepare but full of flavor! Tofu, which is made from soybeans, is a versatile and affordable ingredient. It's high in protein and also contains a good source of calcium and iron. It comes in four different varieties: silken (for smoothies, desserts, etc.), soft, firm, and extra-firm. Most often I use extra-firm for my recipes, and I purchase organic tofu when available.
Pressing your tofu: Tofu typically comes in a large 14-ounce block immersed in water. A tofu press is a handy kitchen gadget that's used to help squeeze out the liquid before preparing. This helps the tofu better absorb marinades and flavors. But if you don't have one, you can simply press the tofu between paper towels.
Tofu is a great egg replacement in breakfast scrambles, plus tasty when baked or used in stir-fry.
