I tried it years ago in a lasagna recipe and thought it was gross but I am wanting to give it another try. We have two local vegan/vegetarian/organic restaurants here that serve it in different dishes so I am going to go try it out before buying it and trying to make something myself.

Thanks so much for your ideas!! I like tofu ♥ I buy it at the health food store deli --its been marinated and grilled --so good. I had never heard of baking it before but now i marinate it and then bake it. Oh yeah!! :D I've been eating plain or in stirfrys. Will try the other ways suggested.
(I have done smoothies)

I'll make it in a stir fry occasionally, but I prefer it as part of a noodle soup. I really have to be in the mood for it though which isn't often - maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

I like it in hot pot or soups, grilled/baked or in smoothies.

I love making a tofu broccoli bake.

Par-boil some broccoli, drain well.

Mix a block of tofu with some tomato paste, mustard, black pepper and a little soy sauce.

Lay broccoli in a wide low dish, one floret deep, spread tofu blend over the top and smooth.

Sprinkle peanuts over the top, press in a little, so they dont roll!

Bake until top begins to brown/peanuts are browning.

I would only ingest Organic Fermented Soy products.
So much soy now days is GMO. I would avoid it by all means. JMHO emoticon

It has become a bit of a controversial food, but I still like it in moderation. If I'm just preparing tofu and not putting it in a recipe, then this is my favorite.

Just saw your trackers--you are both doing AWESOME!! Congrads ♥
I like tofu. The health food store has a grilled one that is so delish but don't know what they marinate it in.
You mentioned a sauce or marinade....please share :D
I made a tofu pudding and my kids LOVE it--not my thing but they like it.

Another favorite is stir fry fresh vegetables and marinated tofu with fresh pineapple.
Don't even miss the rice.
