The User’s Guide to Tofu

Some of you are making gagging noises. Knock it off. It’s good stuff when properly handled.  

One of tofu’s mixed blessings is its blandness. All you have to do is press it between two plates to eliminate the excess moisture. It will then soak up the flavors of its fellows in the soup or the stir-fry, or if you brown it in a little oil before adding it, you will have little crunchy squares of goodness. It also makes a good substitute for scrambled eggs.

Please buy organic tofu only. The non-organic types more likely than not have GMOs in them.
