Celebrity vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli has joined forces with tofu brand Nasoya to create four free recipes - perfect for vegans or those trying to cut their meat intake.

The ambitious chef says she is on a mission to make plant-based cuisine mainstream - as well as to prove that tofu is not only a better-for-you, versatile protein option, but incredibly delicious.

She added: "Cooking with tofu can be intimidating, especially for those who have never done it before. The recipes I created for Nasoya were designed to make it easier than ever to cook with tofu and also give people full confidence that the end result will be delicious."

Fame

Coscarelli hit the spotlight when she became the first (and so far only) vegan to win Food Network's Cupcake Wars.

She has been widely recognized for bringing vegan cuisine to the mainstream as an award-winning chef and best-selling cookbook author. Debunking the myth that vegan cooking is bland, Chloe shares her bright, colorful, and tasty recipes using fresh, healthy ingredients. 

She has published three best-selling cookbooks, Chloe's KitchenChloe's Vegan Desserts and Chloe's Vegan Italian Kitchen. Her fourth book, Chloe Flavor, will launch in March 2018. 

The New York TimesForbes, Inc. and Zagat have each recognized Chloe in their 30 Under 30 series.
