Seitan has a firm, meat-like texture, and can be cooked the same way. It tastes great prepared any way, but I love it most when breaded and seasoned. Can be served with rice and veggies, mashed potatoes, or with a side of pasta.
Pressed tofu is tossed together with tomato, onion, and cilantro in an Asian-inspired vinaigrette providing a simple way of incorporating tofu into your diet. You can certainly play around with this recipe, adding whatever you like, I garnish mine with lime wedges.
I hate tofu but love tempeh and this sandwich is tangy and tasty. My boyfriend and I eat this all the time. It's great because it's vegan for him and I still like it (even though I'm not a vegetarian).
Tempeh is sauteed with soy sauce, lime juice and lots of veggies including green bell peppers and spinach. Chopped green chile peppers and cilantro add a fresh kick. Serve with tortillas, refried beans and rice.
Breaded tofu a la parmigiana. You'll just about swear this is eggplant or veal! One of my husband's favorites, and he doesn't even suspect! Serve with a simple crisp green salad, angel hair pasta and garlic bread.
Firm tofu, bell pepper, and red onion, all quickly stir fried in sweet and sour sauce. A word of caution - this is VERY spicy! If you like milder dishes, decrease the amount of pepper flakes or omit them altogether.
A quick delicious Indian-style curry with spinach, chickpeas, onions, and/or whatever veggies you have. I have added cauliflower, potatoes, and sweet potatoes to this recipe in the past. All were very good. Serve with nan, pita or rice if desired.
This tofu recipe is completely gorgeous. Tofu is soaked in vegetable broth, then breaded with flour, sage, and cayenne, and deep fried. Serve with a relish or a dip of some sort (I love this with plain yogurt mixed with eggplant brinjal).
This is absolutely the best way to eat tofu: it has a slightly crunchy exterior while the inside is nice and soft. My 2-year-old loves it! It is a delicious, easy, quick, and inexpensive meal. Serve with Asian noodles or steamed rice.
