I have so many cookbooks, many of which I forget to use. As sort of a variation on the cookbook challenges, what are your favorite cookbook tofu recipes?

Not in any order:

Swiss Chard Frittata (VB)
Cajun Baked Tofu (YRR)
Omelets (VB)
Tofu Scramble (VWAV)
Chimmichurri Tofu (AFR) *I don't even like cilantro! Best sandwiches ever!
Chile Lime Tofu (AFR) I love it grilled in taco salad
Tofu Ricotta (Vcon) *pizza and baked ziti

I'm boring--I can't come up with any more that I regularly make, probably because I always default to scramble. I need to branch out.

My most used tofu recipes are:

Basic Broiled Tofu (Vcon)
Cashew Ricotta (Vcon)
Tofu McMuffins (we make just the tofu for breakfast quite often) (VegWeb)
Ginger Cashew Butter tofu (can't remember the real title - EDBV)
Scrambled Tofu (VwaV)

Can't wait to see what others like...I need some more great tofu recipes!

And it's not a recipe, but I also like to pan-fry it in Buffalo sauce and toss it on a salad covered in Ultimate Uncheese blue cheez dressing.

Random order:

Lemon Herb Tofu from Dreena Burton's book.
Southern Style Tofu from Vegan Vittles (breaded recipe)
Orange Mojo Tofu (Viva Vegan)
Latin Baked Tofu (Viva Vegan)
Tofu scramble (VwaV is probably my fave of the scrambles. Get It Ripe has a great simple quick scramble if you're feeling less leisurely).
Paul's Thai Noodle Salad (yum...the tofu bits in that salad--it's just 'fu cut up into fine cubes and fried in soy sauce/tamari and nooch. Crispy little delights!)
Blackened Tofu recipes from ED&BV and AFR
Spanokopita from VwaV
The potato tofu frittata from VwaV with red pepper sauce. Man I love that thing and it takes some soft tofu.
Cashew tofu ricotta.

I mean, if I'm going to be honest, beer battered from Vegan Brunch. If I'm going to be practical, V'Con broiled tofu (SO DAMN fast and easy!) Lemongrass Tofu (again with the deep fried) from Vietnamese Fusion Cuisine, and Bryanna Clark Grogan's breast of tofu.

I can't think of ten recipes right now but I wanted to give a shout out to one I didn't notice anyone else mention:

Garlic-ginger bean curd - Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian

So easy, so good.

Cashew ricotta - VCON

I've never made anything out of ED&BV and I don't know why. I should crack it open and try a tofu recipe.

I love the Vcon cashew ricotta too, but I'm so lazy that I always make the tofu ricotta instead because it only takes 3 minutes <hangs head in shame>.

I like this list! Maybe I can turn it into an article if we create a definitive list.

I forgot to add VWaV tofu dill salad. I can't wait until I have my dill plants again. And Mac Daddy. I got sick of that because I made it too often for about 6 months, but I think it's time to make again--with Lima beans or peas.

Isa: an article would be fabulous. I think it gets easy to fall into a tofu rut, not to mention people who are still afraid of cooking tofu. I have a friend eating more veg food for health reasons and he is making plain steamed tofu which makes me sad. I had him buy AFR and ordered him to make chimmichurri, but he still seems scared.

Louise Hagler's Chinese Sweet and Sour Tofu Balls are one of my all time faves. That's the recipe that finally got me to like tofu.

Don't forget Kittee's crispy stuffed tofu pockets from Papa Tofu. She has a new version of The Crispiest Tofu on xgfx, too. Good stuff! I think these were the reason krispy rice cereal was invented.

The UK magazine Vegetarian Living recently had an article about the 6 best tofu dishes. Not one of them was vegan. What the fork?

I don't think I can pick just 10, but I'm throwing Agedashi Tofu in there, because I love it, and I don't think anyone else has said it.

Yeah, honestly, I feel like I've left a lot off and ten isn't enough. I love the 'fu! I agree with many of the other choices I see posted here.

I've got to throw the Pad Thai from VwaV out there, too. It's a regular in our house.

oooh we are tofu-crazed at my house. Here's our faves off the top of my head:

1. mustard-fried tofu from various places on tha interweb - so unhealthy but it's our Sunday night dinner at least once a month
2. orange mojo tofu from VivaVegan
3. pomegranate tofu from VWAV - actually any recipe where it is baked, then smothered in sauce and baked again is completely stellar and I think you'd have to be a real hater to not enjoy tofu this way
4. faux egg salad - I use the recipe from Cozy Inside as a starting point
5. omg Salt-n-Pepper tofu - SO good, again with frying, but I can't help it
6. ricotta, especially the cashew one - nuff said
7. Bryanna's breast of tofu - definitely converted a couple of people with this
8. tofu "wingz" - I've used a variety of recipes and other people's ideas with this (ooh everyone should try the DEOTS wings with tofu instead of tempeh at least once!) but you can't really go wrong with any kinda crisped tofu with hot sauce!
9. VB omelette - once I perfected this after a lot of practice, I was in love!
10. hmm I'm just gonna go with any quiche from VB
