Protein Power: 6 Easy Ways to Eat Tofu

Hey, carnivores—don’t stop reading just yet. Once thought of as simply a hippie food, protein-rich tofu can be a key addition to any man’s diet.

Yes, you can BBQ your tofu. Just choose the extra firm variety and squeeze out as much water as possible, then brush on your favorite marinade or sauce. A quick one we love combines ½ cup of lime juice; ½ cup of maple syrup; ¼ cup of soy sauce; and generous dashes of fresh garlic, ground pepper, and red pepper flakes. (Pro tip: Prep before work and let i sit all day to soak in the flavor.)

Before grilling, spray your grill with a bit of oil so the tofu doesn't stick, then cook for about 5 minutes, or until browned. Baste with extra marinade, then flip sides and repeat. Serve it with a side or stuff it into a bun for a tasty sandwich.
