Some people hate tofu, but we’re not entirely sure why. Yes, it tastes not the greatest right out of the wrapper, but if you dress it up, it’s gosh darn delicious. Not convinced? After looking through these 20 recipes, you’ll be ready to give it another try.

4. Laotian Tofu Lettuce Wraps: Lettuce wraps are an ingenious way to get rid of excess carbs in your diet. These in particular are even more healthy with the addition of protein-packed tofu. (via Vanilla + Spice)

7. Pan-Seared Tofu With Apples + Champagne Vinaigrette: Champagne vinaigrette? Oh you fancy, huh? (via Herbivoracious)
