6 High Protein Vegan Tofu Recipes


I never tried tofu until I went vegan, and always thought it was gross.

Turns out, I was missing out.

Tofu is the base for so many high protein recipes, and has an amazing nutritional profile.

I collected more than 150 high protein vegan recipes. I’ve listed 6 of the best ones here to make sure you can eat all your tofu before it goes bad.

If you’d like to see more, follow that link above, and then in the filter that says “only show recipes with”, type in or select tofu.

Only the recipes with tofu in them will be shown.

1. Tofu Scramble

First up is my replacement for scrambled eggs, which in my opinion is a huge improvement.

Tofu scramble is simple, and has a ton of protein.

2. High Protein Pasta with Creamy White Sauce

Despite a horrible name, this creamy white sauce has a ton of protein since it contains tofu (as certain vegan heavy cream substitutes do).

If you want even more protein, use bean-based or pea pasta.

3. Zucchini Noodles and Marinated Tofu

Chow mein noodles aren’t vegan, but this veganized chow mein is essentially tofu and a lot of vegetables.

It’s tasty, relatively low calorie, and has a bunch of protein.

4. Tofu Breakfast Tacos

I’m not sure what makes a taco specifically towards breakfast, but here it is. Tacos and tofu, it both tastes great and fulfills your early morning protein needs.

5. Grilled Breaded Tofu Steaks

If you miss chicken fingers, you’ll love these breaded tofu steaks.

6. Satay Tofu Stir Fry
