Looking for vegan tofu recipes? I've got you covered!
All of these 26 vegan tofu recipes are easy enough to make for a quick weeknight dinner, but they're also healthy and satisfying too.
What's the difference between firm and silken tofu?
Firm tofu works best when you need the tofu to retain its shape, so it's perfect for stir fries, curries and burgers.
Silken tofu works well for dishes where you don't need it to keep its shape - so it's great for soups, stews and scrambles. It's also delicious eaten cold in salads. It also works well for desserts!
This list is split into recipes using firm tofu and silken tofu.
