What do you do with Tofu?

 

Tofu doesn’t have much flavor by itself, but it’s easy to turn it into scrumptious breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and smoothies!

And it’s a great source of protein, from soybeans.  Try these and the links below to many more recipes, and you’ll see!

“Fakin' Bacon”

  • Tofu, in any amount, sliced in ¼ inch thick slices
  • Soy sauce or tamari 
  1.   Spread a thin layer of  tamari or soy sauce all over  a platter or any flat pan with edges.  
  2.   Arrange the tofu slices in a single layer on the pan.
  3. Sprinkle or spread more tamari or soy sauce on top of the tofu.  The aim is to cover all the  tofu with the tamari or soy sauce, but not have a lot of extra left  in the pan
  4. Let the tofu marinate for 5 minutes or longer
  5. Turn each slice over and marinate another 5 minutes
  6.   Fry the tofu slices in a frypan with a little vegetable oil on medium heat.  Flip them when they’re golden brown, and brown the other side.
  7.   Serve them any way you might use bacon!

  1.   Mix “Vegenaise” into the mashed tofu, and stir in the other ingredients.    
  2.   Spread it on bread or toast, with lettuce or not.

  3. Stir the “Eggless Egg Salad” mixture into the potatoes and serve,  either hot or cold.
