If you miss meat, use these simple tips to trick your carnivorous side.

Step 1: Choose a firm tofu
Choose tofu marked firm or extra firm. This will give you a more meat-like texture.

Freezing tofu will give it a firmer but chewier texture.

Step 2: Press and drain tofu
Press the tofu and drain it of excess water by wrapping it in a towel and placing a heavy weight on top of it. This will allow it to crumble more easily.

Step 3: Season or marinate
Season the tofu with your favorite spice blend, or marinate it in your favorite dressing or barbecue sauce.

Tofu is naturally bland and will absorb any added flavoring from seasoning and sauces.

Step 4: Use in sauces or stews
Replace the meat in spaghetti sauce, stroganoff, tacos, or stews with crumbled tofu.

Step 5: Grill or pan-fry
Grill or pan-fry the tofu for a great charred flavor and crunchy texture – your family will never know the difference.
