1. Meat Alternative: Tofu
Tofu can be a delicious meat alternative if cooked right.
Most people think they hate tofu, but the truth is that, prepared correctly, this soybean product can be truly tasty. To add rich flavour to tofu, try soaking it in soy sauce or your favourite marinade. Or you can fry up a few slices, smother them in barbecue sauce while they’re still hot in the pan, then toss them on some bread for a quick, yummy sandwich.
For an easy ground beef substitute, mash up a block of tofu and marinate it. Or, to give tofu a delicious crispiness, coat chopped-up cubes in flour or corn starch, fry it until all sides are crunchy, then mix it into a stir-fry.
