Tofu week

1. Baked tofu with grains and veggies 

Tofu is a great kitchen staple: Not only is it nutritious, but it’s also super versatile and easy on the wallet. Double or triple Gimme Some Oven’s perfectly crisp baked tofu for your first meal. While the oven is on, roast some of your favorite veggies (bell peppers, root veggies, etc.) and cook up a large pot of brown rice or quinoa.

2. Tofu and chickpea BBQ sandwiches

She Likes Food’s sandwich recipe is as easy as opening a can of chickpeas, crumbling up some leftover tofu, and tossing it together with a few spices. Want to make this recipe even easier? Instead of making your own BBQ sauce, use your favorite store-bought brand. And, don’t forget to save some extra cabbage for meal four…

3. Quinoa-stuffed peppers with tofu 

Take some of your tofu, quinoa (or rice) and roasted veggies from the first nights’ meal, add some fresh herbs and a little seasoning, and stuff it all into a bell pepper. This easy and pretty presentation from Healthy Delicious will get dinner on the table in under 40 minutes (since you’ve already done most of the prep work!).

4. Chickpea scramble breakfast bowl 

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? Especially when it’s so easy to make and so satisfying to eat. Use up whatever leftover chickpeas and tofu you have from the week, toss in any extra veggies (say, a little leftover cabbage from night two?), and you’ll be delighted with Well and Full’s breakfast bowl scramble.
