62 Vegan Tofu Recipes - Back to basics | Hurry The Food Up

There’s a reason we’ve put together these vegan tofu recipes.

I have a good friend who loves to tease me about my vegetarian lifestyle. In fact, one of her favorite things to make fun of is how many different vegan tofu recipes I can come up with.

She thinks tofu doesn’t taste like much, but the trick is to learn how to cook it well.

This list of vegan tofu recipes covers all of the most flavourful choices, from chinese tofu recipes to indian tofu recipes.

Plus, I dare you to find me a more versatile vegan protein source!

There is some debate about the health benefits of tofu, but research overall seems to suggest that tofu is a safe, healthy choice when consumed as part of a balanced diet. It’s full of protein and different micronutrients which makes it a great addition to many different meals.

How to eat tofu

If you’re one of those people who thinks tofu is boring, a few simple steps will certainly prove you wrong.

The first step is choosing the right kind of tofu! There is silken tofu, soft tofu, medium tofu, firm tofu and extra firm tofu.

Make sure that you’re using the kind of tofu that the recipe suggests.

Then comes the choice of how to cook it. You can make fried tofu, marinated tofu or baked tofu, and they will all have different results.

Personally, I tend to fry my tofu but other methods can bring out stronger flavours.

You’ll see the difference between these approaches to cooking tofu as you browse these recipes.

This list covers every possible option for vegan tofu recipes, including everything from curry with tofu, to tofu salad, to tofu burritos.

There’s something for everyone (even my grumpy non-vegetarian friends) here!

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!

Healthy, nutritious and absurdly tasty food? That’s what I’m all about. I love recipes which are full of flavour but are good for you too. My job in family medicine led me to become a nutrition professional as well, with an aim to get people healthier just by the food they eat.

  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

    • 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.
