From back-to-school lunch boxes to tailgating parties, we all need some go-to savory tofu recipes for fall menus. For a lunch boxes and easy weeknight dinners, or if you’re new to tofu and want a simple starter recipe, bake up some Crispy Breaded Tofu Strips. They come with a side of Sweet Potato Fries.

In the mood for Italian? Pan-Seared Tofu with Apples and Champagne Vinaigrette makes a nice Mediterranean salad. Serve Spinach Tofu Calzones for your main course. 

Spice up your family’s Asian nights with Orange Ginger Tofu Triangles and Tofu Pad Thai Noodles. Grill a few pans of Garlic Chili Tofu Burgers for exciting gridiron weekends. When you start the menu with savory tofu entrees, everybody’s a winner.

Tofu Nutrition Facts

According to the USDA and Self Magazine, ½ cup (4 oz. or 126g) of firm tofu contains 88 calories, half of them from fat. Not to worry. There are only 5g of total fat and a mere 1g of that is saturated fat.

With zero cholesterol, zero trans fats, low carbs, low sodium, high calcium and high protein, tofu is practically a sin-free food. The only people who need to be concerned about their tofu intake are menopausal women. Some are soy-sensitive, some are not. Those who can handle soy will benefit from its natural hormone balancing properties, primarily brain function.

Do you like tofu Asian, Italian or American style?

NOTE: The calzone and pad thai recipes are not sugar free. Have your substitutes handy.
