If you’re convinced that tofu is bland and just not for you, you haven’t had it properly prepared yet. Tofu is amazing because it’s a canvas ready to be painted on (with flavors)!
I love tofu so much. And I want everyone to appreciate tofu as much as I do. So with this post, I’m sharing my favorite vegan recipes using TOFU.
You can use tofu in all kinds of dishes! For breakfast, tofu in combination with turmeric (for color) and kala namak (for an eggy taste) is the perfect alternative to scrambled eggs. Tofu can also be used as a protein-rich meat alternative in various lunch & dinner recipes such as vegan fish, goulash, curries, and many more. And lastly, you can use tofu (in this case silken tofu) to make a no-bake cheesecake. See, tofu is full of surprises!
Tofu for Breakfast

Tofu in Desserts
No-Bake Lime Blueberry Cheesecake – I know there are tons of vegan cheesecakes recipes on the internet – many of them use soaked cashews. This recipe for my No-Bake Lime Blueberry Cheesecake does not use nuts in the filling – so you can easily make this cheesecake nut-free by subbing the almonds in the crust with oats or with crushed cookies like Oreos.
