Twist On Tofu: 52 Fresh and Unexpected Vegetarian Recipes, From Tofu Tacos and Quiche to Lasagna, Wings, Fries and More
By Corinne Trang
I received a free copy of Twist On Tofu from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
As the popularity of a plant-based diet continues to grow, tofu sales are soaring, along with the demand for new recipes that showcase this healthy, budget-friendly meat alternative. In Twist on Tofu, award-winning food writer Corrine Trang shows how versatile and flavorful tofu can be, with 54 recipes for creative dinners, as well as starters, soups, salads, sandwiches, and even desserts. There are tofu-based twists on familiar favorites like French fries, Buffalo “wings,” tacos, satay, and empanadas. Recipes for lasagna, Bolognese pasta, chili, poke bowl, and bibimbap offer delicious options for tofu-rich dinners. Trang tops off this celebration of tofu with a bit of sweetness—bumbleberry tofu custard and luscious tofu mocha brownies.
Summary from Goodreads.
Lots of people associate tofu with being a bland, boring food to eat. Twist on Tofu aims to give you recipes that will make you change how you see what you can do with tofu, and how good of a food it actually is.
The recipes are separated into 6 different sections: ‘Starters, Side and Small Plates’, ‘Soups and Salads’, ‘Sandwiches and More’, ‘Baked or Braised’, ‘One-Dish Meals’, and ‘Sweets’. Both the Western and Eastern styles of cooking are catered for in here. Meals that you would more typically associate with tofu like Tofu Veggie Seaweed Roll, Tofu Pea and Mushroom Miso Soup, and Crispy Tofu Salad Rolls; as well as some that you not typically consider, like TLT&A Sandwich (replacing the bacon with tofu), Grilled Tofu Pitta Pocket, and Tofu-Cucmber Raita over Baked Potatoes.
Each recipe is very easy to follow. Not only that, at the beginning of this book, a section is dedicated to the differences between the different tofus, when to use which tofu, different way to cut it up and whether you should drain it or not.
If you are looking for a way to change up how you eat tofu, then I could not recommend this book more.
