Top Tips for Cooking with Tofu

Whether you’re plant-based or just like to go meat-free every now and then, tofu is a brilliant high-protein alternative that tastes great.


Tofu sometimes gets a bad rep for being bland and boring, but with my few cooking hacks you too can master the art of delicious tasting tofu, every time!


1. Pat it dry. – Use a kitchen towel to remove excess moisture before cooking.


2. Marinade – Dice up your tofu, coat it in herbs and spices of your choosing as you would with meats. A curry powder is a very simple and tasty place to start.


3. High heat – Tofu is best seared, so that you get a little crunch on the outside rather than a soggy, crumbly texture! Have your pan on very high, and sear all sides like you would a steak, to seal in the flavour of your tasty marinade.


4. Seasoning – as with everything, seasoning is king. Always remember your best friends salt and pepper, before serving.
