Spicy Baked Tofu
This healthy, protein-packed tofu dish is filled with flavor. This is a spicy dish. I don't find it overly spicy but I like heat in my faux-meat! I served this with wilted garlic spinach and a fresh salad on the side. Remember that tofu is a concentrated protein, so you don't need as much tofu as you would meat. This dish is great reheated! If you want to be really creative, try grilling your tofu for an even more delicious result!
Fruited Tofu Curry Salad
Vegetarian salad, with a lot of flavor. Serve as a meal or as a side dish on a bed of lettuce or in pita pockets. Tofu may also be pan fried in a small amount of oil with a tablespoon of curry powder instead of boiling method.
A great tofu taco recipe for a meatless meal.

Eggless Tofu Spinach Quiche
I make this quiche without eggs. The tofu gives it a good texture. I've brought it to potlucks where friends aren't vegetarian...no one ever knew! It is always a hit!
Tofu Sandwich Spread
This is a favorite vegetarian sandwich spread made with tofu. Makes a great sandwich filling or you can eat it with crackers.
Tofu Creamed Spinach
A good alternative to higher-fat versions of creamed spinach, silken tofu is pureed with milk, cheese, and seasonings, then added to spinach sauteed with onions and garlic. Serve it to anyone, and don't tell them there's tofu in it until they've already eaten some. If you like, pan fry some thinly sliced mushrooms with the onion and garlic, or add some canned mushrooms with the spinach. You could also add a little crushed red pepper for heat and sprinkle some extra cheese on top for serving.
Tofu and Rice Stuffed Peppers
Italian style stuffed bell peppers for the vegetarian (can easily be prepared vegan). Even my meat-eating husband loved these.
Hot and Spicy Tofu
Firm tofu, bell pepper, and red onion, all quickly stir fried in a 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.
Coconut Curry Tofu
My vegetarian daughter-in-law gave me this recipe for a creamy coconut milk, spicy curry, and ginger tofu dish! I serve it over rice.

Lime-Curry Tofu Stir-Fry
This is a quick and tasty sweet and sour dish. I like to marinate the tofu in the same sauce used on the dish, and then bake it at 375 degrees for 20 minutes--it makes the tofu really take on the flavor of the sauce.
Yellow Squash and Tofu Stir Fry
A great, quick vegetarian dish that includes yellow squash, zucchini, and tofu, making for a beautifully-colored dish. Top with cheese, if desired. You can use butter instead of olive oil, if desired.
Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein
This easy-to make recipe is very inexpensive. I made it for my boyfriend's family and his mother is Filipino! They loved it! You can really mix in a lot of different ingredients to spice it up or make it your own. Try different Ramen noodle flavors.
