Some Easy And Healthy Tofu Dishes


healthy tofu dishes

Healthy eating is a way of life for many people, but there are few diet restrictions as strict as those associated with the vegan lifestyle. A vegan diet does not include any animal products, including meat and dairy. The most common protein sources in a vegan diet are soy-based food items such as tofu, tempeh, or seitan.

Although it can be difficult to find anything on the menu at restaurants that will suit this particular dietary restriction, following these Healthy Tofu Dishes will allow you to enjoy some tasty options from your favorite cuisine without compromising your beliefs about what you should or shouldn’t eat.

Tofu Scramble

A plate of food with broccoli

In this dish, eggs have been replaced by extra firm tofu which has been crumbled into pieces and then seasoned with turmeric and garlic powder.

Bean Burrito

A store filled with lots of traffic

This meal is quick to make and will only require the cooking of a single pot of rice, which can be done in about 20 minutes.

Tofu Pad Thai

This dish takes slightly longer than some of the other recipes on this list, but the extra time is well worth it for such a delicious dish.

Tofu Ceviche

Tofu makes a wonderful substitute for seafood in this ceviche recipe, and the capsaicin found in the habanero peppers will give your metabolism a boost. If you’ve never tried tofu before or if you’re looking for some new recipes to add to your weekly menu plan, these four easy dishes should become the go-to items on your list of favorite things to eat.

The Grilled Tofu With Wasabi

This is our favorite dish, if you are really good it almost tastes like beef! If only I had known to marinate it in soy sauce.

Spicy Tofu From The Caribbean

This dish was much spicier than we were expecting and after a couple of bites, we felt like we needed to go take a nap in the hammock outback. But other than that one drawback it was actually pretty good.

Fried Rice With Tofu Bits

We added some soy sauce to this and then ate it for lunch every day for an entire month (we don’t really like vegetables). I like to think of fried rice as kind of like scrambled eggs; if you want to, you can put anything in there and call it something else. So basically this dish is like scrambled tofu.

Tofu Pockets With A Side Of Garlic Sauce

If I had one criticism it would be that the pocket part of this dish was a little tough and chewy (I know that’s how it’s supposed to be, but still). Other than that, delicious! And we didn’t even feel bloated after eating all these pockets.

Tofu On Toast With A Tomato Wedge

This was actually really good, not very complicated though so I guess you could basically just say it’s toast with a tomato wedge on top! But sometimes simple is best. All in all, an easy and healthy tofu dish for everyone!
