I'm a fairly new vegetarian, and I'm wondering if anybody has any good tofu recipes? I find myself making stir-fry a lot, mainly because it's quick and the only thing I really know how to do. I also have a recipe for stuffed baked avacados (sounds weird, but tastes REALLY good).



Any help would be appreciated!

Did you write the book of love, and do you have faith in God above,
If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock Ân roll,
Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

check out the recipe section on here.

also, you can search the internet for "tofu recipes"... fatfreevegan.com, vegetariantimes.com, vegweb.com, tofu.com are some great sources as well.



also, some tofu brands have their own websites for ideas.



you will get a ton of ideas, from sweet to savory. Check out some veg cookbooks from your library too for some inspiration.



BTW, your recipe for stuffed baked avocado sounds intriguing...care to share??!!

I will, once I remember where I put it.

Last night I made tofu parmesan. Basically bread the tofu and brown it on the stove. Then bake it at 400 for 20 minutes with some tomato sauce and vegan parmesan. You can top it with mozzarella if you eat dairy.



I served it with spaghetti. My omni husband was stealing bits of tofu from my plate!

My (and my carnivorous son's) favorite way to enjoy extra firm tofu is just to slice it, roll it in a vegetarian version of "Shake 'n Bake" and then bake it. Voila - "chicken" nuggets.

Lately I've been making a fast soup for breakfast and to eat throughout the day. I cut up a package of firm or extra firm waterpack tofu into cubes, pop it into a pot with some water and low sodium vegetable Better Than Buillion in it, and heat it up. Then I dice 2 roma tomatoes and an entire bunch of green onions. I take the soup off the heat and add the tomatoes, green onions, and a bunch of frozen leaf spinach. Viola! You can add some small pasta if you're really, really hungry.

I bought the shake n bake at the store today (after searching for it forever, even called my dad to ask if he knew where it was). I'll have to try it this weekend.



FYI, the recipe I mentioned for baked stuff avocados is here: https://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...d.php?t=100338

I really REALLY dislike tofu, however I made this (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=10743.0) once for my friend and she said it was really good

thank you! this soup sounds really good. i am not good at being creative and making things on my own usually. i plan to try this. it seems inexpensive and sounds like it tastes really good!
