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!

Check out my recipe below for—*drumroll, please*—baked-tofu fries!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
