Is there anything that tofu can’t do? Packed with nutrition benefits, including plenty of plant-based protein and calcium, tofu is super versatile and a staple in any plant-based kitchen. I use extra firm or pressed tofu for most recipes, for a firmer texture. Medium or firm tofu is excellent in a soup. Looking to boost protein in a smoothie? Try some silken tofu, which blends up as silky as yogurt. 

Smoked tofu can be sliced, and added to a sandwich without cooking. There are so many yummy tofu recipes to try: dice it into a vegan egg salad, tuck it into a banh mi-inspired sandwich, make a breakfast scramble, or bake it for dinner.
