Tofu has long been known as vegans’ ultimate protein source. However, it is also severely underappreciated as an ingredient on its own, despite its great taste and versatility. Tofu is not only nutritious, but it also can be used in every dish, from appetizer to (seriously) dessert. Here are a few recipes to get you started…
