If you are a tofu regular, like us, then you’re probably used to cooking it in your pan with oil (olive oil or any other neutral oil like canola or sunflower oil). But here comes this Buttery Lemon Tofu to disrupt the olive oil + tofu association. Turns out that cooking tofu in plant-based butter (we used Flora Plant Butter) is a game-changer and it adds a really unique flavor (and golden color!) to the otherwise flavorless white tofu.

If you’re wondering what you could eat this Butter Lemon Tofu with (apart from on its own because it is that good!), then there are a few amazing companions out there that could do it justice. Our favorite choice is some crispy diced potatoes in the pan (or baked!), the intense and amazing flavors of the tofu go so well with the soft flavors of the potatoes.
Have you tried cooking tofu with plant-based butter before?
