Plenty of people want to jump aboard the vegetarian bandwagon, but one serious road block stands in the way. Actually, scratch that — make that a tofu block. The cubed, soft and bouncy curd is not exactly enticing, but it shows up front and center on practically every vegetarian or vegan menu. For those not enchanted by tofu’s wet paper flavour (let’s be real), there are plenty of vibrant vegan recipes filled with alternative healthy proteins, like chickpeas, lentils or kale, that will knock that jiggly tofu out of the park. Get ready, because this whole meat-free thing a about to get a whole lot easier to tackle.
