When it comes to tofu, I can absolutely see why some find it very off-putting or challenging to work with. I’ve been eating tofu for roughly 18 years and I find that the final result is all in removing the water content and making a fab sauce. If you can nail those 2 things then you’re more likely to have enjoy this plant based staple.
What I love about tofu, is that there is so much you can do with it. You can make a sauce, sauté it, fry it, bake it, make desserts with it and the list goes on. Bonus, it’s affordable, packs plant protein, and will outlive any traditional proteins in the fridge.
If you’ve ever tried my Coconut Lemongrass Soup, it’s one of my favorite dishes. With brainstorming for the next tofu dish, I just knew that you could recapture those same flavors, but with a tofu/rice dish and perhaps thicken the texture.
and just like that, the Vegan Coconut Lemongrass Tofu was born!
What’s fab about this dish? Everything! It’s quick, easy, packs plant protein, tons of flavor, can easily be made in bulk, you can skip the cashews if desired, it’s perfect for any season, packs a lil sweet with a lil heat, great for meal prep, you can switch up the protein if you like, and if you like Thai Coconut Soup, you’re going to love this dish!
Whether you’re a seasoned tofu lover or a just getting familiar with it, you have to try this new Coconut Lemongrass Tofu!
