We are looking to shake up our meat free meals! Check out these20 Terrificly Tasty Tofu Recipes from the HLB Community to try in your kitchen ASAP.
The Best Baked Everything Tofu from Dianne’s Vegan Kitchen // Everything Tofu — covered in a mixture of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, garlic, onion, and salt — is baked tofu perfection! Serve it in a sandwich, a Buddha bowl, or a salad. It’s also makes a delicious dinner alongside sautéed vegetables and cooked grains. This simple and easy tofu recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and oil-free.
Easy Asian Tofu Tacos from Eating Bird Food // Spice up Taco Tuesday with these flavorful and meatless Asian tofu tacos. The tofu is crispy and flavorful and pairs great with the crunchy and refreshing slaw.
Tofu Broccoli Stir Fry from The Almond Eater // This tofu broccoli stir fry is made with long grain brown rice and topped with roasted broccoli and crispy tofu. It’s a quick and healthy dinner recipe and vegan-friendly, too!
Cashew, Tofu, and Broccoli Stir Fry from Brownies and Zucchini // The sauce is similar to a sweet and sour sauce, but definitely on the sweeter side. It is also a pretty thick sauce, which means that the tofu gets a nice coating of it and soaks up the flavor which I love.
Easy Coconut Veggie Curry with Tofu from Running on Real Food // This quick and easy vegetable curry with coconut milk, tofu and brown rice makes a great option for a weeknight dinner. It’s ready in 15 minutes, tastes great and is vegan and oil-free.
The Best Crispy Asian Baked Tofu from Running in a Skirt // Tofu is ridiculously easy to make at home, is an inexpensive protein and when made correctly can taste really good. The secret, in my opinion, is to pack it with flavor AND make it crispy. My favorite way to make it crispy is in the oven!
Thai Inspired Tofu ‘Chicken’ Noodle Soup from Foodie Loves Fitness // This soup incorporates some of the classic chicken noodle soup ingredients, such as carrots, celery, and noodles, but my Thai take includes rice noodles instead of regular pasta. It also features classic Thai ingredients, including red curry paste and coconut milk. And since we do things plant-based around here, instead of chicken, the recipe uses tofu that’s sautéed until crispy in coconut oil, then tossed with soy sauce and nutritional yeast to give it some nice salty flavor.
Tofu Ricotta: Easy Vegan Cheese in Minutes from Cadry’s Kitchen // Tofu ricotta is a full-bodied, umami-rich addition to your vegan lasagna, stuffed shells, and mushroom pizzas. It’s made with just a few ingredients in the food processor, and comes together in only minutes. Vegan & gluten-free.
Crispy Buffalo Tofu and Kale Salad with Vegan Ranch from The Glowing Fridge // You’ll be delighted to know it IS in fact healthy and doesn’t disappoint. Also, crispy baked tofu smothered in buffalo sauce… need I say more? Spicy food is never lacking in this house!
Italian Tofu Scramble with Zucchini and Cherry Tomatoes from Zen and Spice // Tender yellow potatoes, zucchini and cherry tomatoes tossed with tofu and seasoned with traditional Italian seasonings like garlic, basil and oregano. This Italian Tofu Scramble is a perfect vegan breakfast any time of the week!
Tofu Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce from Dietitian Debbie Dishes // This tofu stir fry with peanut sauce is a great weeknight meal option since it cooks up relatively quickly on the stovetop… The great thing about stir fry recipes like this one is that the type of veggies you add in can vary based on the season or what you have in the fridge that night. In the one I made for this post I included purple cabbage, carrot, red bell pepper, and broccoli. Other great vegetable options include: sugar snap peas, asparagus, cauliflower, bok choy, green beans, Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, etc.
Balsamic Pasta Salad with Tofu from Sinful Nutrition // Balsamic Pasta Salad with Tofu — A classic summer recipe made with sweet and tangy balsamic vinaigrette, tri-color pasta, artichoke hearts, bell pepper, and Nasoya balsamic tofu. A vegan friendly side dish for any cookout or barbecue!
Grilled Tofu with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce from jessica Levinson // Top crispy grilled or broiled tofu with a smooth and delicious dairy-free cilantro avocado cream sauce. A quick and easy weeknight meal to enjoy all year long.
Tofu Fresh Rolls with Creamy Peanut Sauce from Naturally Lindsay // Who knew it was so easy to make your own peanut butter? It made a super creamy and incredible sauce. I omitted the sambal olek for my kids but added a big dollop to my sauce before devouring.
Tofu Sweet Potato Bowl with Tahini Sauce from Veggie Chick // Tofu has a bad rap. And I get it. It’s a bit weird looking and pretty flavorless on its own. It took me a little while to get used to the texture and figure out how to cook with it, but now that I do, I cannot get enough. This food is a protein powerhouse and you can use it in SO many ways. For this particular dish, it’s a bit crispy, which is my favorite way to eat tofu.
Honey Teriyaki Tofu from Savor and Savvy // Don’t let the prep time shown on the recipe fool you.. the actual amount of hands-on time for this honey teriyaki tofu recipe is 15 minutes – 5 minutes of prep, 10 minutes of cooking… but there is an hour of marinating in the fridge.
Tofu Teriyaki Buddha Bowl with Roasted Veggies from Hello to Fit // Tofu Teriyaki Buddha Bowl with Roasted Veggies has all the essentials that make up a healthy Buddha bowl: a brown rice base, roasted veggies, crispy tofu, and a delicious Medjool date teriyaki sauce. Perfect for a vegetarian meal!
Easy Honey BBQ Tofu Bowls with Rice and Peppers from Savory Spin // This tofu is so quick and easy to whip up and relies on the flavoring of spicy/sweet, smoky/tangy Moore’s Honey BBQ Wing Sauce, some sauteed onions and garlic! I paired it with some rice and sauteed peppers for a delicious weeknight meal. Now, you can easily sub some chicken for the tofu and this would be just as delicious! After all our holiday feast-ivities, these Easy Honey BBQ Tofu Bowls with Rice and Peppers made for a light and flavor-jammed dinner!
Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu from Ricki Heller // A great way to serve tofu that works as a main or side dish. These Crispy Salt and Pepper Tofu cubes are vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, egg free, nut-free, yeast-free, and low glycemic. Suitable for Stage 2 and beyond on an anti-candida diet.
