Tofu is definitely gaining more respect in the court of public opinion these days. Most people don’t cringe when you say ‘tofu’ anymore, or tell you that they ate it once, and they hated those slippery little white cubes, floating in their Japanese soup. It’s so mainstream that you can even order is right off the menu at Chipolte! (Yes, Sofritas is tofu! It’s amazing btw, in case you haven’t tried it! Spoiler Alert: This post contains a link to a sofritas copycat recipe! ) Besides it’s super high protein content, one of the best things about it is that it will soak up the flavors of anything you cook it with, marinate it in, or blend it with, making it a really versatile food! So enjoy this list of 25 creative ways to prepare tofu, including recipes from my blog, and from other talented food bloggers! Enjoy!
