Stop Eating Flavorless Tofu! Three Easy Ways to Cook Flavor Into Your Meat-Free Protein

Tofu is a staple in every plant-based diet, and even if you’re not vegan, there are plenty of ways you can still enjoy the meat-free protein. Unfortunately, it often gets a bad rap for its lack of flavor and texture. But if cooked correctly, tofu is delicious and a great source of protein.

Here are a few ways that you can cook tofu to make it flavorful, delicious, and healthy, all in one:

1 Baked Tofu

Cut tofu into cubes and line in a glass tray
Add marinade of choice over tofu
Let tofu marinate for 30 minutes
Transfer tofu to a baking sheet
Bake at 400°F for 35-40 minutes, flipping halfway through.

2 Sauteed Tofu

Cut tofu into cubes
Heat oil in a pan
Add tofu to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes per side
After tofu is golden brown, add desired sauce to the pan
Continue to cook tofu in sauce, often stirring, until crispy

3 Scramble Tofu

Cut tofu into slices
Heat oil in a pan
Add tofu slices and “scramble” with a spatula
Add sauce/seasoning
Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring often
Continue to cook tofu without stirring for about 6-7 minutes
