Tofu Roundup

Tofu is a great vegan “protein” and is very versatile. It takes on the flavor of a marinade almost immediately and can be grilled, baked, breaded, or pan fried. I serve it on what I call a “Blue Plate Special” because it is an old restaurant name for the daily special that had a protein with vegetables on the side.

Many of these recipes are similar but that is kind of the point. Easy ingredients pack a lot of flavor. Plus, check out the side dishes because they are just as important as the tofu!

6 .Tofu Scampi. One of my favorite ways to use tofu to veganize a classic. This dish is all about the sauce.

7. Tamari Marinated Tofu. This tofu shows up in what I call Friday Night Bites. It’s an easy way to use whatever is leftover at the end of the week with an easy marinated tofu.

9. Tofu & Cashews in Brown Sauce. Asian inspired.

10. Tofu Paprikash. When Harry Met Sally!
