Our Favorite Ways to Introduce Newcomers to Tofu:

  • Help others make a slow transition to eating tofu by using baked tofu in recipes that call for firm tofu. The firmer and “meat-er” texture of baked tofu can help win over some of the biggest skeptics.  Try adding some Easy Baked Tofu to your veggie stir fry.
