1. Crispy Tofu and Peanut Noodles with Carrots, Snow Peas & Scallions

We used a toothsome whole wheat linguini to catch a luscious, creamy peanut sauce. The noodles get topped with crunchy, thinly sliced carrots and snow peas lightly dressed with a sweet vinegar sauce. They’re even better with warm pieces of golden-crisped tofu, so make sure to get your pan hot enough when browning the tofu. Cook, relax and enjoy!

2. Mapo Tofu over Udon Noodles with Ground Pork and Baby Kale

3. Grilled Tofu with Chimichurri Charred Green Beans and Squash

Chimichurri is an Argentine garlicky herb sauce often served over grilled meat. We love it so much we had to drizzle it over tofu. Truth is, we kind of like it better that way—the bright and slightly spicy flavors shine alongside a charred tofu. And tender vegetables complete this light summer meal. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

4. Miso-Glazed Tofu & Carrots with Greens, Grains, and Furikake

We think this dish is as fun to eat as it is to say! Furikake is a Japanese seasoning condiment that packs loads of sweet, salty, and briny flavor. It’s usually sprinkled over rice, but we love how it transforms tofu into something super special. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

5. Mushroom Mapo Tofu with Rice, Snow Peas, and Chili Oil

While traditionally cooked with ground pork or chicken, our rendition of this Sichuan dish does not miss meat one bit. We chop white button mushrooms up finely, sauté them until browned, and combined with a very special black bean garlic sauce, you’re left with an addictive mixture of silken tofu, crunchy snow peas, and those flavorful mushrooms, all served over rice. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

6. BBQ Tofu Sliders with Pickles and Crunchy Broccoli

This super inventive tofu sandwich is sure to make a convert out of even the most vocal naysayer! And how could it not? Sticky, smoky-sweet BBQ sauce and tangy home-made pickles, all between a soft potato roll. Who needs steak? Cook, relax, and enjoy!

7. General Tso's Tofu with Broccoli and Soba Noodles

This type of tofu is very silky. Tossing tofu in cornstarch and shallow frying gives it a nice crispy outside. Broccoli and soba are perfect vehicle for sauce. Easy weeknight meal/Take-out food made at home. Cook, relax, and enjoy!
