You could treat it like "yogurt" and mix it with granola and fruit.

If you want to keep some for baking, or for putting in smoothies, or for any kind of blended application (e.g. in dips) where you're going to whazz it mightily with other ingredients, by all means freeze it.

UPDATE:

I'm happy to report that the silken tofu baked up wonderfully!

I was surprised when I took it out of the package at how firm it was for silken. I was expecting it to be much softer. It is more fragile that the firm, but handled carefully it worked just fine!

I have blended silken tofu with a little lemon juice and olive oil and used it in
place of sour cream. It works wonderfully.

Here's the recipe:

Tofu Cream Cheese Alternative Recipe (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free)

1 cup Firm Silken Tofu
2 Tablespoons Olive or Vegetable Oil
3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice or 2 Tablespoons Vinegar
1Tablespoon Sugar
½ teaspoon Sea Salt

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a bowl and chill. (from www.godairyfree.org)

I made a "sour cream" filled coffee cake for a potluck several years ago for an office full of non-vegetarians. They gobbled it up - and I never let them in on the secret!

I hope this helps,

DO NOT FREEZE SILKEN TOFU!

When thawed it is nasty grainy, I think sand would be "silkier" after thawing silken tofu.

I've seen recipes for crepes and such with silken tofu and you can probably blend it down and use it for cream sauces and such (but that's just a hunch).

Good luck!

My boyfriend's brother gave me a case of tofu for my birthday (he works at a place that makes tofu). I was so excited until I got home last night and realized it's silken tofu!! My favorite way to use tofu is to slice and bake it, but this is silken tofu! What in the world am I going to do with it. I'm not interested in making desserts or smoothies with it.

I'm definitely going to google some recipes, but I thought maybe someone here might have some ideas for me.

The box says "do not freeze" but I'm wondering if I freeze it maybe I can still slice it and bake it...oh, i don't know...help!
