Whether you’re totally meat-free or just go vegetarian a day or two a week, there’s a lot to love about tofu. It’s a perfect blank canvas, and we’re not referring just to its beige color. Whether you use creamy, silken tofu for salad dressings and desserts (it’s very blend-able) or firm and extra-firm varieties for stir-fries, sautés, and grilled dishes, we’ve got 31 awesome flavor combinations to doctor up your tofu.
Silken Tofu: Dressings
Silken tofu was made for the blender. It has a consistency similar to very soft ricotta cheese or yogurt, making it a perfect emulsifier for dressings, vinaigrettes, and sauces. Try these flavor combinations and dress your salads in tofu.

Sorrel has a potent astringency, like lemons. It’s very delicate, which means it blends easily. Just a drizzle of rice vinegar is all you need. The honey helps keep it all in balance.
Fresh Dill + Chives + Lemon Zest
When fresh herbs are in season, use them! A hit of lemon zest will seal the deal.
