High-res My Guide to Cooking Amazing Tofu
As a single ingredient, tofu has a lot to offer and it’s worth learning how to cook it well. I’ve gathered together all of my tofu recipes, tutorials, tips, and tricks together into this all-inclusive tofu resource.  You’ll be enjoying amazing tofu dishes in no time!
Why do you need to learn how to cook tofu?
It’s high in protein (13g/serving)
A source of calcium and iron
Mild in flavour making it ideal for marinades
Versatile – it can be baked, sautéed, fried, grilled, you name it!
Quick and easy to prepare – it can be flavoured and prepared in as little as 10 minutes
Very cost effective, 1 block ($2.27) = 4 servings ($0.57/serving)
Tofu has some awesome health benefits too! Studies have shown that eating tofu can help to lower bad cholesterol, and 25g of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease (in combination with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.) Check the label and look for non-GMO tofu.
