I am a tofu-loving vegan. We now make our own (wonderful, amazing, fabulous) tofu for about 20 cents a block, but even when we were buying tofu it was still heaps cheaper than animal proteins. And much more versatile.
Tofu cut into strips, marinatd in some kind of soy sauce concoction, and then stir fried with veggies makes a quick and summery meal -- perfect for the warm weather we've been having lately.
I don't mind my tofu rather bland, however. This was not marinated, but did have some kind of sweet chilli-style sauce on it.
Who can go past a tofu scramble for brekky? Tofu, grated carrot, spices and tomato served with toast is hearty and healthy and a perfect way to start the weekend.
These were really yummy spanikopita-inspired pastries. A filling of tofu, silverbeet and mushrooms wrapped up in puff pasty and shaped in various ways. I remember making the dipping sauce -- a squeeze of mayo, a squeeze of tomato sauce, a squeeze of sweet chilli, a spoon of mustard, a spoon of tahini... Surprisingly, it worked and was a delicious dip for the tofu & veggie filled pastries.
