Easy to find and simple to prepare, tofu can replace pork, beef, chicken and more in any number of recipes that you want to make meatless. Most tofu is sold plain (without added flavoring), though it can absorb any seasonings you add to it, similar to how meat adopts the flavor of a marinade. Whether you crumble it atop a salad, grill it with barbecue sauce or sear it and serve with Asian-style noodles, tofu is a hearty vegetarian ingredient whose uses are endless.
Food Network Magazine features firm tofu in 30-minute tacos (pictured above). To prepare, first slice the tofu, dust it with taco seasoning and sauté it until it is crispy and caramelized. From there, stuff the tofu in toasted tortillas along with lime-scented coleslaw, shredded mozzarella cheese and bright salsa verde.
Serve with Alton’s five-star Guacamole, made with fresh avocados, Roma tomatoes and pinches of cumin and cayenne, to complete this Mexican-inspired feast.
