5 Delicious Tofu Dishes

While to some, tofu is arguably the most difficult food to work with, I have found that tofu can actually be very versatile, if you know what to do with it. Freshmen year, when I discovered I could no longer eat meat products, I turned to tofu as a main source of protein. After finding easy ways to cook tofu that pleased both my stomach and taste buds, I decided it was time to find ways in which I could incorporate tofu into larger meals.
