I tried Tofu for the first time this past summer in a spring roll. Wasn't really impressed. I tried it again last month while having lunch at BD Mongolian Grill. Much better. I will continue to eat tofu. I understand its a good substitute for meat.

I tried the Jamaica Jerk Tofu recipe first because the marinade would add lots of flavor.

The flavor was excellent. It will take me a few meals before I get used to the texture of the tofu. I had to eat each bite with some rice on the fork.

The verdict? Yes. I will continue eating and cooking tofu.

Oops. I meant to post this in Week 3 discussions. Week 3 is when we are doing the healthy food substitutions.

Is it my destiny to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time? At least I can laugh about this one.

Let us know how it goes :) I usually use it instead of meat in stir fries and haven't tried to pass it for something else like chicken or eggless egg salad. I don't see the attraction for my palate since I still eat eggs and chicken.

After reading the articles for this week about substitutions, I decided Tofu would be my focus. I will try 1-2 tofu recipes during the coming week.

I made a SP Recipe Collection of recipes I would be willing to try: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/cookbooks.a
sp?cookbook=474781

Check out http://www.nasoya.com. The link to their "Tofu U" looks like a good start for learning how and what to do with this unfamiliar food.

Arigato gozai mashi ta to all the people who make this web site appear on my screen and make it so informative and useful.
