Did you know that:

Soyfoods are rich in nutrients and promote healthy eating.

Soyfoods are also a great source of iron, fiber, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc.

Fruit soy smoothies with soymilk or soy yogurt are a fun way to ensure proper calcium, and soy burgers or soy crumbles in place of ground beef are a great way to reduce calories, cholesterol and saturated fast.

Soy meat substitutes, such as soy ground, cook up in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional meats, and it’s ideal for pre-made meals that can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator.

Cooking with soy also provides an excellent opportunity for families to spend quality time together because unlike traditional meats, there is little concern about cooking through or cross contamination, so kids can be more involved in the meal preparation.

Soyfoods make delicious meals. They are great as a staple ingredient or used as a substitute in a favorite recipe.

Here are some of my favorite recipes using soy:

Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu

Pumpkin Honey Tofu. This turns out like spongy pumpkin “bread”. Very soft, chewy, and pliable infused with pumpkin flavor.

Here’s a post with Tofu Preparation & Cooking Tips for how to create bread-like tofu, crispy tofu, firm tofu, and other preparation tips.

Apple Glazed Vegetable & Edamame Stir Fry

Mango Ginger Maple Tofu

Spinach & Artichoke Dip (Fat Free, Vegan) Use soy-based cream cheese

Fig Butter & Cumin Tempeh Stir Fry – This was a 4 minute meal. Tempeh is so versatile and no pressing (or cooking if you’re really in a hurry) is required.

Salsa Verde Pepperjack Tofu (Microwave & Vegan) Use soy-based cheese along with the tofu

Avocado, Cream Cheese, and Salsa-Stuffed Puff Pastries Use soy-based cream cheese

  25. Well, I love pressed tofu based dishes. I adapted your chutney recipe and used TJ Pumpkin & Cranberry butters in the marinade … a keeper. Love your inspiration!

  26. A splash of soymilk in my coffee or in my oatmeal is how I most commonly use soy.

  27. I use Soy Milk (vanilla) ALL the time in my “Green Monster” Smoothies. Yum! :)

  28. I recently made some buffalo tofu that was amazing! Pressed, frozen, then pressed-again tofu is probably my favorite–it takes a little advance planning but it’s so good. :)

  29. I’m in love with Spicy Sriracha Grilled Tofu lately. I LOVE tofu, but my husband doesn’t, so I don’t eat it as often as I’d like. I’m also a huge edamame fan :-). Link to the Sriracha/tofu recipe:

  30. I like snacking on edamame.

  31. I’m half Japanese, so there’s no shortage of tofu in my house! I see myself use more of it since I became vegetarian over 2 years ago, however, I know it’s not good to eat too much of it. Moderation people! My favorite way of eating tofu is in smoothies!

  32. soymilk in my coffee and cereal :)

  33. I make a salad inspired by my favorite local vegan restaurant. It’s a chopped salad with black beans, cukes, red peppers, red onions, a block of tofu, and lots of herby leafy things, all chopped into teeny uniform pieces and dressed with a nut-based smooth dressing (I used cashews and olive oil pulverized in my vitamix). So good!

  34. Tofu of course! It can be savory, it can be sweet, and its super healthy :)

  35. We use soy milk for smoothies, cereal eating, and making mashed potatoes. You won’t find real cow milk around our house (it tastes yucky to us now and isn’t healthy either.) We’d love to win and try these soy products!

  36. i love tofu anything! stir fries are great.

  37. We eat a lot of tofu at my house. I am really into the recipes in “Appetite for Reduction” right now. There are a couple great soy ones!

  38. My favorite restaurant does a vegan “chicken”-fried steak made out of a tempeh steak. I’m trying to work up the courage to make it myself
