Vegan Tofu Recipes: High Protein and Super Tasty

Tofu may get a bad rap from anyone who hasn’t tried it. But it’s such a versatile ingredient and a great source of protein for non-meat eaters.
The great thing is tofu is quite readily available these days in the grocery store and there are different types of tofu too, from extra firm tofu to silken soft tofu.
It will depend on which recipe you need and what firmness you’ll require.

Take a look at this top 79 list of vegan tofu recipes

And we’re off! Now 79 recipes is quite a lot, but don’t worry there will only be a small test at the end (joke!)

Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:15 minutes
Total Time:20 minutes
Servings:2 people
Calories:486kcal

Ingredients

  • 14 oz firm tofu (ideally get fresh tofu from the supermarket)
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • ½ bunch radishes
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 small tin pineapple (small tin = 8 oz = 225g = ¼)

For the dressing

Instructions

  • Press out some excess moisture of the tofu block, then cut it into small cubes (about one square centimeter). In a pan heat up some oil at a medium heat and in the tofu goes. Fry for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Multitasking challenge: make sure you stir every now and then (and add some salt) while you prep the rest of the salad. You can do it, bring it on!
  • Next up: wash your veggies!
  • Slice the radishes.
  • Cut the cucumber lengthwise in half, remove the seeds with a small spoon and cube what’s left.
  • Cut the pineapple into small chunks as well.
  • Throw everything into a bowl along with the spinach and bean sprouts.

Now to the dressing

  • Combine olive oil, honey, sriracha, lime juice, salt and pepper and toss it into the salad.
  • Get the tofu cubes and place them in a separate bowl. Add them to each salad serving. (If you throw them right into the salad they’ll get mushy quickly).
  • Also for garnish, cut the chili and roughly crush or chop the peanuts. Sprinkle them over the salad when serving.
  • Enjoy!

Tofu FAQs

We’ve answered all your tofu questions soy you know the facts!

How many calories are in tofu?

There are 76 calories in 100 grams of tofu, and 8 grams of protein.

How to store tofu?

According to Wiki-How you need to store tofu submerged in water in an airtight container as it is susceptible to bacteria. You should also change the water daily.

Is tofu healthier than meat?

While tofu is said to be healthier than meat in terms of the reduction in saturated fat content, there are concerns that eating too much can have a negative affect on women’s health.

Soy contains phytoestrogen which mimics oestrogen in the body and there have been cases where it’s temporarily stopped a woman’s monthly cycle when they’ve consumed too much, so don’t over do it!

Can you eat tofu raw?

Any type of tofu can be eaten ‘raw’, as it’s already partially cooked when you buy it in the shop.

However, there can be a small risk to health from contamination during manufacture so it’s advised that small children and pregnant women in particular cook it before eating.

It’s always a good idea to use paper towels to really dry out the tofu before cooking or eating.

  1. Having lived in South Korea for several years, I learned a lot about protein-filled tofu. Koreans drink it, fry it, boil it, make tofu soup…you name it, and they make it with tofu. However, like many Westerners, I was a bit put off by the sliminess of the soy wonder. Luckly, a Korean friend told me how to say goodbye to slime and that is to simply freeze the tofu before cooking. The result is a tofu that isn’t slimy and has a texture somewhat similar to meat.

    I hope this idea might interest others who want to cook tofu dishes that are free from slime

    1. Hi Susan, and thanks! Funny enough, I read the same recently and currently have a block defrosting in the fridge for this evening’s meal, I’m looking forward to it. Thanks for sharing, it sounds like a great tip! I gather you’re supposed to squeeze the water out after defrosting, too.
