Freeze Ahead Tofu Recipes

A simple marinade turns a bland block of tofu into a flavorful high-protein main. But who has time (or can remember) to marinate tofu in the morning for a quick weeknight meal? Spend some time this weekend pre-prepping bags of marinated tofu to store in your freezer for up to 8 months. Then when you need a quick weeknight meal, pop them into a slow cooker or your oven when you get home. Serve with a veggie side and rice for a simple, delicious, healthy meal your whole family will enjoy.

  • 1 block extra firm tofu, drained and cut into 1 inch cubes
