20 Tasty Tofu Recipes For Vegetarians and Meat Lovers Alike
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.
1. Maple-Glazed Tofu With Rice Noodles: We thought we’d start off with an Asian dish, since the cuisine probably uses tofu more than any other. What makes this dish unique is that the tofu is sweetened with a nice maple glaze. (via Jono + Jules Do Food + Wine)
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)
6. Blueberry, Banana and Tofu Smoothie: This smoothie is a great breakfast for those crazy hectic mornings before work. Not only does it have the fruity flavors of blueberry and banana, but it’s full of energy from the protein in the tofu. (via Vitasoy Australia)
7. Pan-Seared Tofu With Apples + Champagne Vinaigrette: Champagne vinaigrette? Oh you fancy, huh? (via Herbivoracious)
10. Crispy Tofu Pasta Salad: This pasta salad is asking to be taken on a picnic at the beach. It’s the perfect excuse for a fun day out (not that you need an excuse!). (via The Realistic Nutritionist)
12. Chipotle Tofu + Potato Burrito: Tofu and potato are a surprisingly tasty combination. The silky and soft texture of the tofu contrasts perfectly with the starchiness of a potato. All of this in a tortilla? Count us in. (via Spa Bettie)
14. Mediterranean Nachos With Red Bell Pepper Hummus + Tofu Feta: Wait… you’re telling us that you can even make toppings for your nachos with tofu? We’re in heaven. (via Keepin’ It Kind)
15. Vegan Quinoa Sushi with Tofu Steaks: If you recently converted to veganism, you may be missing your monthly dose of sushi. Lucky for you, we’ve found the perfect solution. (via Divine Healthy Food)
17. No-Fry Vietnamese Spring Rolls: Vietnamese spring rolls are awesome because all you have to do to make them is dip the wrapper in water and fill it up with ingredients! (via Keep on Bobbin’ Along)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
