Chili-Lime Crusted Tofu with Creamy Herbed Rice

I just adore finding new delicious recipes and ways to enjoy tofu! I had to reblog this so I would be sure to find it and try it. As the author mentions, tofu can be tricky when you are first starting to try it in recipes and I am certainly no expert with it but I have had quite a bit of success with several recipes thus far. if you are a bit shy of new foods, trying tofu at a trusted restaurant can be a nice way to dip your toe in the water but if you are the sort who likes to take the plunge, I’d say give it a whirl. Oh, and tofu makes great desserts as well – very versatile. Let me know if you try this recipe before I do!

Happy Cooking!!
