Tofu. Tofu? Tofu! Sure, we are dedicated carnivores in the Medium Rare test kitchen, but everyone needs an alternative protein now and then. For us, the best tofu has a crispy outer crust, seared or baked with some spices/breading. Paired with some stir-fried greens or nestled into a delicious broth, it makes for a very satisfying meal — without the meat sweats.
