Easy tofu recipes for savory main courses, side dishes, dressings, and sauces

While we typically think of tofu as a main-course dish, tofu can also be used in a variety of savory dips and sauces and family-style side dishes as well! Firm or extra-firm tofu is best for meaty tofu dishes but would you be surprised to know that silken tofu can be used in a variety of dips, sauces, and dressings?
