Does anybody eat Tofu ?

I bought some the other day and don't really know what to do with it. Does anybody have some good recipes (simple, I'm a guitarist remember !) ?

Attached Image

I know you can eat it straight from the packet, or cook it up. Was thinking of frying it... rolleyes.gif

I also tried some Quinoa yesterday.. it was quite dull so if anybody has some good ideas for that too... ? smile.gif

Haha, yes this video was foremost in my mind.. CUT THE TOFU !! laugh.gif

Thank you.. I just tried frying it and didn't really feel it. I think the stuff would probably work better if it could absorb some flavours. On its own it tastes like a less tasty egg white, mixed with paper ! wink.gif

Tofu never really worked for me, as it has no flavour. I think you have to put it into a spicy hot sauce for at least 24 hours, then cook it in some way. What a good thing that we have our own GMC chef now! biggrin.gif

Try consuming it in soup. It really absorbs every flavour.

Also try looking for Yve's Ground tofu. It is a great substitute for ground meat in any situation.

Put it in marinade. (oil, sweetchili, lime, fresh coriander, s&p and soy)

Then roll it in breadcrumbs and almond pieces and deep fry it.

Eat it with rise and warm coleslaw (Sweetchili, chili, curry, saffron, coconutmilk, s&s - heat all these in a pot)


cool.gif

I really don't like tofu but as an cook I have to sometimes do meals from it.

I sometimes eat it,
you can mix with onions garlic pepper or what ever vegetable you like , than olive oil, spices you like and fresh herbs
and than roast it like a burger or what ever you like .

And some cream cheese or sheep cheese taste good too - just mix it !

Strange white stuff, usually used as a substitute for meat. Very high in protein !

I've had it from a local Japanese Restaurant, they fry it with onions in a teriyaki sauce, its so good!

cut it thin like a cheese slice, then put it onto a bun, place a 1/2 pound burger with bacon and cheese, lettuce and ... forget the tomato - tomatos suck. But yah, pour ketchup on it, and the tofu will kindof go unnoticed, but you'll get all the nutrients it has to offer, while tasting great!
