Even though I'm not a vegetarian, when the inevitable question of what to make for dinner comes up, I gravitate toward tofu. I love Asian cuisine, so I have tofu-friendly soy sauce, sesame oil, and red chili paste stocked in my fridge and a rice cooker at arm's length. Plus, compared to beef, pork, or chicken, it's the easiest and quickest protein to prepare. While some people find tofu lacking when up against meatier "meats," I consider it an equal to more traditional options. When you're running to the store, what protein do you stock up on?
