There’s no food that strikes fear into the hearts of new vegetarians like tofu does. Tofu! It comes swimming in a plastic container full of water, it’s strange and springy and white and incredibly bland out of the package. So many of the questions we get at Oh My Veggies involve tofu cooking and preparation, so I’ve rounded up some of our favorite ways to use tofu—both from Oh My Veggies and from other food blogs.
Use Tofu in Asian (and Asian-Inspired) Dishes
