You can see that Ashley mentioned a blog called Eating Bird Food and that was the blog I turned to for my first tofu recipe! Brittany actually responded with some great tips and her favourite recipes herself. I’ve been following her blog ever since and I love it!
I bought Cauldron’s Smoked Tofu and diligently pressed it as that was the advice from everyone, and on the packet as well.
I made this 10 Minute Tofu Stir Fry but adapted it with the following ingredients, head to the link for the method. I used wok oil instead of cooking spray, smoked tofu, rice wine vinegar instead of the nutritional yeast and soy instead of the coconut aminos.

- Buy kitchen roll and tofu!
What’s your favourite tofu recipe?
Is it toe-fu or toff-oo ?
