Baked Tofu Bites

Rating: Unrated
Tofu cubes are marinated and then baked in the oven. The tofu can be used as a hot or cold snack or used as salad topping. Don't forget the smoke flavoring, it really adds the special flavor.

Tofu Parmigiana

Rating: Unrated
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.

Breaded, Fried, Softly Spiced Tofu

Rating: Unrated
This tofu recipe is completely gorgeous. A former roommate introduced me to some basics with tofu, and over the past few years, I've settled on this ratio of spices and other breading ingredients. The crust on the tofu sticks is tasty and the texture is really wonderful. Serve with a relish or a dip of some sort (I love this with plain yogurt mixed with eggplant brinjal). I usually make this with a cumin-scented rice dish and a garlicky broccoli side.

Lime-Curry Tofu Stir-Fry

Rating: Unrated
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.

Almost Eggless Egg Salad

Rating: Unrated
More than just a substitute for egg salad! The only egg is in the mayonnaise; use soy mayonnaise for a vegan variation. Serve on wheat toast with crisp lettuce and fresh tomato slices.

Tofu Vindaloo

Ultimate Tofu Breakfast Burrito Bowls

Rating: Unrated
Tofu scrambles up just like eggs, and with some clever spices, even non-vegans will barely notice the difference. Try setting out toppings to let family or guests assemble their own burrito bowls.
