This is tasty tofu in no time! After your tofu’s blackened, try cutting it up into bite-size cubes and then store them in a baggie in the refrigerator. Enjoy them in all sorts of ways. Toss them into your salads for plenty of rich, chewy, flavorful, and filling protein, but with none of the cholesterol and saturated fat of animal protein. Or add them to soups, marinara sauces, and whole grain dishes like quinoa. Or simply pop a few in your mouth as a snack (so much better for you than typical snack foods!)
This healthy recipe pairs well with just about anything — salmon, chicken, or game meat like bison and venison. It’s also a superb go-to for quick-fix lunches or snacks.

Or blend a big scoop of your beans and rice with a big bowl of lettuce greens and sliced tomatoes for a filling lunch salad.
Double or triple the recipe for a great potluck party side dish. On busy weeknights, it’s also wonderful to have on hand in the fridge.
