Tofu Made 12 Different Ways You're Going To Love

A lot of people have the preconceived notion that tofu is flavourless and they won’t like it. However, this is only true if it’s not cooked correctly. Try out any (or all) of these 12 tofu recipes and you’ll realize that tofu can be just as tasty as any other source of protein.

1. Sweet and Sticky Tofu with Bok Choy

This garlic and ginger sweet and sticky sauce will ensure that your tofu is anything but boring and tasteless. This recipe is essentially a healthier take on traditional Chinese takeout (and also way cheaper to prepare as well).

4. Crispy Buffalo Tofu Bites

As someone who always loved wings before going vegetarian, this is one of my personal favourite takes on tofu. The buffalo flavour of the tofu pieces paired with the garlic yoghurt & feta dip of this recipe is a healthier take on wings and ranch (and dare I say more satisfying for that). You’ll be surprised just how much even your most “tofu-hating” friends will enjoy these.

I personally love experimenting with flavour when I make my tofu, and I’ve found that peanut sauce is definitely one of my favourites when it comes to replacing the meat substitute. This stir fry is simple to make while being absolutely delicious.

6. Black Bean and Burgers

As I’ve said before, it’s usually pretty difficult to impress me when it comes to meatless burgers. I usually find they’re dry and tasteless, but this black bean and tofu burger is one of few that proves me wrong. Whether your friends are meat-lovers, vegetarian or vegan they’ll be sure to love this scrumptious recipe.

7. Breakfast Tacos

Realistically, any taco is perfectly acceptable at any time of the day. You need less than 10 ingredients for these tofu breakfast tacos and they’re perfect for those mornings when you’re pressed on time but still need a hearty meal. Don’t knock tofu breakfast scramble until you try it because it’s a surprisingly good dupe for eggs.

8. Baked Nuggets

Don’t be leery of these almond crusted baked tofu nuggets because they are just as finger-licking good as chicken nuggets in my humble opinion. The dipping sauce that goes along with this recipe is to die for and I’m sure these nuggets will become a staple in your stack of tofu variations.

9. “Chicken” Noodle Soup

This soup doesn’t have to be reserved solely for chicken! Tofu does just as good of a job at being a protein source and complimenting the flavours of this soup. If you’re looking for vegetarian comfort food then this is one of the top contenders for an easy, flavour-filled meal. Some tofu fried in tamari can take you a long way.

10. Buddha Bowl

Buddha bowls are great because realistically no matter what the recipe is you can spice it up however you desire. This roasted veggie buddha bowl pairs it with quinoa, avocado and broccoli among others, but you can replace them with whatever you’d like if you’re not a fan of anything the recipe calls for. Buddha bowls are a great way to make a healthy dinner tasty and satisfying.

11. Banh Mi Sandwich

Banh mi sandwiches make for a savoury and filling lunch that will give you the energy boost you may desperately need to get through the day. While the banh mi is a Vietnamese sandwich that typically calls for meat, this recipe replaces it with tofu and is every bit as delicious. The recipe is entirely vegan as well so it is friendly to everyone.
