Tofu Eggless “Egg” Salad

Tofu Eggless “Egg” Salad is one of our favorite vegan food transformations. Made with firm tofu and vegan mayonnaise instead of hard-boiled eggs and eggy mayo, this a treat on fresh bread or stuffed into pita. You can also dollop it onto a green salad for extra protein. Photos by Evan Atlas.

Tofu fans will love the sprightly citrusy flavors that permeate this elegant presentation, and it just might make converts from those who are new to tofu dishes. Easy enough to make for an everyday meal, this is also special enough to serve as a holiday main dish. The carrots, citrusy flavors, and fresh herbs make it a wonderful choice for Easter dinner.

Kung Pao Broccoli and Tofu

Sometimes I get unexplainable cravings for a spicy stir-fry. The last time the hankering hit, I checked the fridge to find I had a tub of tofu and plethora of broccoli, so Kung Pao Tofu happened. This recipe is based on a Kung Pao Vegetable dish I posted a few years ago. Contributed by Dianne Wenz, from VeggieGirl. more→

“Tofuna” Salad or Sandwich Spread

"Tofuna" - tuna-style tofu sandwich spread

This sandwich spread is so simple, yet every time I make it, it disappears quickly. Even tofu skeptics love it. Since all you really need for this is the first three ingredients, it hardly qualifies as a recipe, and you won’t even need to consult this after you make it once. The last two ingredients, though entirely optional, are highly recommended. If I’m having guests for lunch or brunch on weekends, I often make a batch of this as an extra, no matter what else I’m serving. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→

Singapore-Style Tofu Yellow Curry with Rice Noodles

Singapore-style rice noodles

Characteristic of some Southeast Asian cuisines is the overlapping of Asian and Indian influences. This is true here in this tasty and pleasantly offbeat noodle dish that is seasoned with both soy sauce and curry. Fine Asian rice noodles are now available in a whole grain variety.

Tofu Chocolate Pudding

Dairy-free tofu chocolate pudding recipe

Three ingredients (plus two optional ones) add up to a delightful dairy-free chocolate pudding. Silken tofu is a great base for pudding — it has just the right consistency, and it spares you from bothering with a flour-thickened sauce, which tends to scorch and lump. more→

Barbecue-Flavored Tofu Nuggets

Baked Barbecue-Flavored Tofu Nuggets

This is so simple that it barely qualifies as a recipe! But it is invariably a huge hit, and makes believers out of tofu skeptics. It can be served as a simple protein dish on the dinner plate, or as a hot appetizer with cocktail toothpicks. Of course, if you use VegKitchen’s recipe for Quick Vegan Barbecue Sauce, this becomes more than a 3-ingredient recipe, but since I’ve never found a prepared BBQ sauce I’ve been too impressed with, I like to take the few extra moments to make my own. more→

Stir-Fried Greens with Napa Cabbage and Tofu

Stir-fried-greens with tofu and napa cabbage

Napa cabbage combines nicely with darker leafy greens, adding a lighter texture and flavor as well as visual interest. This dish comes very close to being downright addictive. It’s an amped-up variation of Stir-Fried Chard with Napa Cabbage from Wild About Greens,with tofu added, and the flexibility of using whichever kinds of greens are most abundant in your garden or at the farm market. Serve with (or over) a simple noodle or grain dish and a bright, colorful salad. more→

Easy Curried Sweet Potatoes and Tofu

Easy Curried Sweet Potatoes and Tofu

Once you have your sweet potatoes ready, this delicious curried combo made with tofu and greens comes together quickly. Serve with cooked quinoa or couscous or a fresh flatbread, and a simple salad of tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers. Stir some coconut yogurt and chopped cilantro into the salad to make it almost like a raita, a perfect accompaniment!
