THE TOFU MENU

This week we've chosen to highlight the ever versatile tofu, which can be transformed into a delicious tofu banh mi, a topper for cool, refreshing noodles and crumbled over spicy nachos.  You'll need 5 (10-ounce) packages of firm or extra firm tofu for this week's meal plan, which will stay fresh and moist in the Zwilling Fresh & Save Vacuum Food Storage System.
This week's meal plan is brought to you by our friends at Zwilling and their all-new Fresh & Save Vacuum Food Storage System which keeps food fresh up to 5 times longer than non-vacuum food storage methods —saving you time and money and helping you to eat healthier. Happy cooking!
