tofu and tempeh recipes

Tofu recipes at Anyreasonvegans vegan recipe blog are healthy and easy to make. It is rich in plant protein and calcium. Additionally it is low in carbs making it great for vegan keto recipes.
Tofu is also known as bean curd. It is prepared by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into solid white blocks of varying softness. Which  can be silken, soft, firm, or extra firm. Beyond these broad categories, there are many more varieties.

It has a subtle flavor, so it can be used in savory and sweet dishes. It is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish and its flavors, and absorbs flavors well. It is sometimes treated as a meat substitute.
Tofu is relatively high in protein, about 10.7% for firm tofu and 5.3% for soft “silken”, with about 5% and 2% fat, respectively, as a percentage of weight.

Tofu has different texture and consistency which is determined by the water content in it. More water means softer or ‘silkier’ while less water makes it firmer. They are labeled as silken, regular, firm, extra-firm and super-firm.

My favorite kind is extra firm and marinated in lots of spices and seasoning. Then fried in a pan or baked in the oven. Check out our recipes for the soy bean based meat replacement. Silken breaks apart easiest and is used in soups and puréed for desserts. Extra firm is beat for meat replacement in sandwiches or tacos! Try out some different textures in a variety of recipes to find your favorite kind!
