On nights when I just.don't.want to eat meat, I like to brush a block of tofu (cut in half) with olive oil, salt and pepper, and put on my cast iron grill alongside whatever meat my husband is eating (he doesn't really "get" tofu, lol) and serve it in place of meat. I've found I also like it mixed in with pasta along with a little olive oil, chopped tomatoes, avocado, spinach, really any other veggie I have on hand. It adds some filling protein and absorbs the other delicious flavors.
It can be used raw, seared, I haven't really cooked it more than just a few minutes so I don't know about cooking-intensive dishes, but I really enjoy it in the ways I mentioned above.
Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.
