Good Tofu Recipes Wanted
    #1878929 - 09/03/03 09:57 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

With cooking instructions! I tried to make that shit tonight and it tasted like flavor less eggs, despite all the spices I put on, and I normally love tofu.

I don't regularly eat tofu, it is bland. The only way I eat it is deep-fried. Fry it in hot oil @ 370F. I eat it with a peanut dipping sauce similar to the one served with Satay. I'll try and get a recipe for the sauce.

well they sell this one type of tofu at asian markets which you usually could buy fresh in the morning...it's quite soft in texture and on the top of the tofu container is a smaller container with ginger sauce. this is pretty good to eat in the morning, warm!

It's also served sweet. I love that stuff, very hard to find it around where I live that's any good, the closest place is this Dim Sum restaurant in NYC.



Taahhooooooe!

Ive only made tofu in three ways..

1 is in soup... Its GREAT in soups with lots of flavor like Hot and Sour...
2 is a firm tofu I bought once that said it was good for grilling...  It was extra firm and it grilled alright but tasted like crap..
3rd was in smoothies...  Tofu smoothies are better for you than anything you can think of and their thick, fruity and delicious.

We made the smoothies at work one day after I saw it on a cooking show...  I work in a grocery store and we just got a blender of the shelf and everyone bought the ingreedients...  We made them, washed the blender, dried it and put it back in the box and its propable been sold to a customer by now... :lol:
God stuff

Mmm i love tofu in miso soup....

but most resturants dont make miso soup the right way,
they just add miso to water with tofu + seaweed..
that makes it quite bland....

the best way to do it, is use dashi as a stock, then add the tofu and seaweed + miso...

or my fav version is the winter miso.. (thats what i call it)
first add 1 small potato, a little bit of onion, and boil in water untill they are soft, then add miso with dashi....
thats it, easy as pie!!

those of you who dont live near an asian market may have a hard time finding miso WITH dashi... but its well worth the effort..

the dashi is already mixed in, so all u need to do is add it to the water and your done.. perfect amounts every time......

the only kind ive seen is in japanese, look for a tub of miso with little fish on them.. that is the kind with the dashi...
good luck!!

BTW, when my mother gets back from telaviv ill ask her for some of her fav tofu recipies...

Check out the Veggies Unite! site, they have lots of recipes there...I love it in a tofu scrambler, with red and yellow bell peppers, potatoes, onion, some garlic, and habanero sauce.

Soak tofu in a couple tablespoons tamari and add it to a stir fry of onions, peppers, and pineapple, make a ginger pineapple sweet and sour sauce, stir that in with stir fry and serve over rice.

Gw is a vegetarian so tofu has become a forte :smile:

Since its often hard for veggies to replace the traditional comfort foods, here is a tip or two:

Buy extra firm tofu.  If you freeze your tofu first it will make it have a much more pleasing solid and less mushy texture "meaty" even.

If you eat eggs, you can slice your tofu into little cutlets about 1/2 inch thick, dip them in a half breadcrumb half flour mixture seasoned with garlic powder, salt, pepper, etc and then fry them.  I like to actually double bread them, sticking them back into the eggs and then into the dry mixture again.  If you dont eat eggs, you can mix a little cornstarch ( 1-2 tsp per cup of water and substitute that for the egg mixture.

You can do all kinds of cool things with the cutlets.  They make great tofu parmigiana if you add spaghetti sauce and cheese  to the top.. You can serve them with mashed potatoes and vegetable or mushroom gravy as well :smile:

Tofu can absorb liquids like a marinade. Soy sauce will work as a lazyass marinade.

If you get it in blocks at the supermarket, notice that there is Silken; firm and very firm these are the like the softness. Use silken in dips and in smoothies and for ginger glazes (a personal fav. good with chicken). Firm can be used for loaf anf casseroles and very firm can be used for frying and for soups and I recommend it for sautees with veggies.

Is it bland. If at all possible, get the Textured vegetable protien (TVP)at health food stores. It comes in many sizes ( i get the bigger chucks because you make them smaller) and can be brought back to life via steamer or letting them soak in a liquid. Hot liquids bring them to life quicker. Good for soups!YUMMMMMMMMMMM

Mock Tuna-fu:

makes it look like chunk tuna
~Canned tuna( in water prefferably), drained of liquid; reserve this.dispose of tuna meat however
~TVP chunks; smashed to shit to the desired texture (i.e., the difference between Albacore and the other types of tuna-whichever you prefer.)
~Water
~Celery (optional, Can use dried spices)
~Onion, diced (optional, Can use dried spices)
~Salt
~Curry powder, a dash
~Parsley (optional, Can use dried spices)
~Mayo or Miricle whip or mustards.

Boil some H2o, about double of the amount amount of tuna juice and heat till boiling. Immediately remove from heat.

Pour in a bowl with the TVP. Cover til soggy and pierce fork tines. Drain liquid and let cool ...

*Let it soak up the liquid. Go for more tuna flavor-power with some lemon and a second soak after intial first.*

Add remaining ingredients to fesired flavor. Recommend salt after. Salt is a powerful thing...once in cant take out.

Serve on toast or bread; or by itself with lettuce, cheese and tomatoes!

Dank
