Tofu is a great source of protein for plant based diets. When firm it can be grilled, broiled or baked, while silken can be used as an egg substitute or to add protein to shakes and smoothie. The recipes here use it in all these ways.
How to buy: Tofu comes in different consistencies, such as silken, medium, firm and extra firm. Choose whichever fits your needs or recipe.
Storage: Leftover tofu should be left in fresh cold water in an airtight container. Leave in the refrigerator and use within three days.
