    Help Cooking Tofu?

    Advertisements
    So I've thought about picking up some tofu next time I go grocery shopping. I put this under the special diets section because I really didn't know where else to put it lol. Does anyone know any great recipes for it or a website that has some great recipes for tofu?

    I used to be a vegetarian and eat lots of tofu. One of my fav. easy ways to eat it was to take it out of the package, dry it really well with paper towels to get all of the water out then cut it into slices about 1/4 inch thick and bake it at 350 degrees. You can use any sauce to dip in it etc.

    Oh and another great baked tofu if with olive oil, lemon juice and rosemary

    Drain it really well, press out the water, cut it into cubes. Brown it on the stove in a pan, pour in some teriyaki sauce and let it thicken up and serve it over rice.

    I dried mine, sliced it, then cooked it in a frying pan with basil, lemon juice, feta cheese, and tomatoes. Sooooooo good.

    I have lots of ideas about tofu in there.

    In general I like it stir-fried with veggies and soy sauce. Or with peas.

    I also really enjoy it fried with mushrooms and a nice red wine.


    Just buy the extra firm or firm if you're planning on cooking it 'cos it really doesn't do so hot otherwise. And be sure to drain as much water as you can.

    For an interesting twist, if you freeze it it gets a totally different texture which a lot of people really like.

    I love to fry mine up in a little EVOO with soy sauce. Then I toss some broccolli in there until it's soft and eat! It's cheap, easy and has lots of fiber and protein. Great for weight loss!
    Peace out. MSOS has lost it's value.

    You can add it to soup. Bring a salted pot of water to boil and add some pork or beef bones (the kind for making stock) or if you don't eat meat try so shittake mushrooms then put in some dark leafy greens with the tofu - its really nice and healthy too. Serve with some rice on the side for something more filling.

    I made Tofu Mousse all the time.
    Sounds gross but its great!
    You need:

    A blender
    3 bars hershey chocolate
    About 2 packs tofu
    Some maple syrup

    Melt chocolate and blend all ingredients together. Add more maple syrup if its a little bitter. Chill

    Its about 1/3 of the calories of normal mousse and it tastes great!
