Tofu is an inexpensive meat substitute that packs lots of nutrition. I did not grow up eating tofu but as a chef have enjoyed learning how to cook with it. Plain tofu can become extremely tasty once you add certain combinations of spices, herbs, and vegetables.
Chai Tea Muffin
One of my favorite drinks is chai tea, which I think tastes like nothing else. It is amazing to me how dramatically the taste of black tea changes once you add spices like cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, and star anise.
