My Top 4 Favourite Tofu Recipes

I'm obsessed with tofu and you should be too. If you're not, chances are you are cooking it the wrong way. Tofu can be delicious without too much work and paired with the right things. In my spare time I scroll through the internet in search of great recipes to try and I'm never not inspired by what I find. I've done the leg work for you today. Below are my top 4 tofu recipes from food bloggers and chefs from around the globe. Pro tip for all of these recipes - get hard or extra firm tofu - it will hold its shape and develop a nice crust in the cooking process.

1. 101 Cookbooks - Caramelised Tofu

Heidi is one of my all time favourite cooks - her food is delicious and beautiful. This recipe is my absolute favourite. It is quick, simple and light. Making it the perfect summertime dinner - preferable eaten outside as the southerly kicks in after a hot Sydney summer day.

2. The Kitchn - Sheet Pan Honey Roasted Tofu & Green Beans

Sheet pans are your best friends in the kitchen. If you invest in some chef style large ones you will be laughing your way to mass cooked roast vegetables and tofu! Things taste better when they roast on a sheet pan ;) The beauty of this recipe is its a one pan wonder. Sweet and spicy and jam packed full of nutrients.

3. Jamie Oliver - Vegan Chocolate Pots

I'm throwing in a curve ball here - desert - and not just any dessert, desert made with tofu. Sounds gross I know but trust me. This on will be a hit with all involved. If you cant get your hands on dairy free chocolate and are not vegan, sub in some dark chocolate 80% or higher

4. Chris Morocco (via bon appetit) - Braised Spring Veg with Tofu and Miso Polenta

We are slowing upping the steaks here. Chris Morocco cooks beautiful soul loving food. This recipe, albeit slightly more complex than the rest, is worth the extra work. Go slow on the miso here and add it in slowly to your desired taste.
