Naturally gluten and cholesterol-free and low on calorie count Tofu is also a great source iron, calcium and protein. Some may say its benefits outweigh the its culinary capabilities, but we think otherwise. It is time to try out some lip-smacking Tofu recipes that we have here.

1. Tofu Makhani

If you’ve already had chicken makhani or paneer makhani, this one is the same except you add tofu. Once the tofu gets soaked well in the gravy, the plain tofu becomes as delicious as the original behind these dishes. Find the recipe here.

2. Grilled Tofu

This is like a healthier version of paneer tikka. To prepare it all you need is a few zucchinis, mushrooms (optional), onions, bell peppers and of course tofu. The full recipe makes us wanna run and cook some right now. Find it here.

3. Tofu and Vegetable Curry with Rice

With as little as half-an-hour at hand you could cook a curry dish with tofu and bag a lot of compliments from the family. The simpler it looks the more delicious it is, we concur. This is one of those recipes that also keeps intact the nutrients of tofu as well as the vegetables. Find it here.
