Fact: Tofu is easily the most versatile vegan staple on the planet. You can bake it, grill it, sauté it, purée it, or fry it. And since it takes on the flavor of whatever it’s marinated in or mixed with, the recipe possibilities for tofu are pretty much … well … infinite!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
