I know there is a lot of controversy around it, but I believe it is one of the perfect vegan protein sources.
There's actually tons of research showing how hearty and beneficial it is to us, too!
That being said, we all have to listen to our OWN bodies to know if it's good for us.
I know that my body LOVES IT and it makes me feel GOOD!
It's super filling and hearty and can turn into so many amazing things!!!
Like these Spicy Buffalo Tofu Wings or Vegan Queso! I also made some AMAZING high protein/low carb tofu brownies that will be coming to the blog soon :)
I always use House Foods organic tofu in my recipes because it is reasonably priced, non-GMO, and just delicious!
So. This Thai Peanut Tofu Sandwich is SO GOOD and super easy to make. I used my famous Skinny Thai Peanut Sauce, but you can use any peanut sauce you like.
But trust me... my sauce is pretty fantastic if I do say so myself!
This recipe is...
& perfectly filling, nutritious, and delicious!
