Not a fan of tofu.

Your Spark friend Polly.

Sometimes I can feel depleted and when I do I find hope in this verse I am sharing with you.

Isaiah 40:31

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

I definitely don't like it in big rubbery chunks in a dish. Reduced down to small pieces and prepped with herbs or marinated tofu is not so bad. For many dishes, I'd rather have my soy as edamame.

cauliflower has similar properties to tofu, in taking on the flavour of other ingredients

I love tofu! You can put it in so many things and it takes on whatever flavor you give it. I also like it on its own, so I guess I'm lucky that way.

There are tons of great tofu recipes right here on Spark. I have spent several hours searching for good vegetarian tofu recipes so I can have more variety in my diet. I have made a new resolution to buy and eat one block of tofu a week.

I can also barely tell the difference between tofu and paneer, so I like curried tofu.

I've never been able to successfully work with tofu. I tried quite a few times, but when it came down to it, it was always too watery to work with and just never did well. I couldn't get the hang of it.

I wouldn't mind trying it again if I was at a restaurant where somebody knew how to make it really well, but trying myself? I don't think I could.

Not writing it off, but like seafood, I'm tempted to leave that to the "experts."

I’ve used the very firm Tofu as a substitute for paneer (Indian style cottage cheese) but it’s really not a tasty substitute. It tastes like nothing, and I feel as if I’m chewing foam rubber. 🤢

TOFU
I eat it when I make Lasagna. I mix it with tomato sauce and use in place of the ricotta.
I also stuff large Portabello mushrooms with it and bake.

But I haven't had Tofu in years because of a previous food plan I was following. I was restricted. I will try it again..

Home now 3 days after 3 months in hospital. When I was there I often had tofu as part of a stirfry, the tofu pieces took on thhe taste of the sauce, it was a good combination. Weight is still going up due to fluid retention emoticon have to make better efforts in sticking to daily fluid allowance. My skin is driving me mad too, as the ointment hasnt been correctly or fully applied, and the skin is like parchment in areas.
I have a busy schedule early next week with followup appointments, the podiatrist and my social group being on the agenda.

cheers richard

I too eat a variety of beans. Fiber can be important in the diet. Tofu served as big rubbery chunks in a dish is certainly unattractive, and not so pleasant to eat, but it can be prepared in a number of ways to be eaten and incorporated in recipes that do work quite well. It won't be a mainstay of my diet, but there are ways to use it that are not difficult and not unappetizing.

I have purchased some red kidney beans from the huge tub (put into a brown paper bag) from our local flanneries health food store. I have yet to cook them.

I hate buying the tins of stuff as most tins come with the white plastic coating or lining which is really bad for your health. Cancer causing in fact. Can't find any tins that are organic and don't contain the white plastic lining in them. emoticon

I love tofu. I like it so much that I have been making my own with organic soybeans, so that I know the quality. I am excited as in a few weeks I am going to give fermenting my own tempeh and giving it a try. I am trying to avoid as much commercially processed foods as I can, so I take it as an adventure to make my own ferments, and such myself.

Honestly, I've never had the courage to experiment with tofu. I was going to try it once, opened the package and thought the smell was awful and couldn't bring myself to eat it.
I was just thinking yesterday that I would try it if someone else made it, but maybe I should give it another go.

Like it - WHEN its prepared well!!

My favorite homemade way to prepare it so far is to take the high protein block from Trader Joe's (no need for pressing!), cube it and marinate it in a bit of soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and garlic at least overnight, stirring every so often. Then I bake it 35-40 minutes.

I've definitely been careful not to eat too much soy as per Richard's comment about the phyto-estrogens. My doctors ensure me it is okay and that as a women it is actually very beneficial but I am not convinced. For home use I only purchase organic GMO free tofu. If dining out, I can't be selective (and I do frequently eat tofu when dining out).

i avoid tofu, unless a component of vegetarian sausages.
these cut up and wrapped in puff pastry then baked make great sausage rolls.
i am not fond of soy milk and as soy contains phyto-eostrogens, I avoid it as a man.
Asian nations do very well on an intake of soy.

I love tofu. Very versatile. It's a great source of protein, however, as a person who eats mostly veggies, I don't worry about getting protein. Americans tend to eat way too much protein.

Years ago, I was in Minneapolis and a restaurant did a tofu breakfast scramble and it was delicious.

I, apparently don't know the secret, and, for that reason, I don't use it almost ever.

The issue came up recently, because I am trying to give up dairy and I saw some vegan lasagnas and one of them used tofu mixed with Nutritional Yeast as the cheese.

I actually bought the tofu and didn't have the courage to use it, and used Go Veggie Mozzarella instead and that was good enough that I never used the tofu.

I need to put a poster of Julia Child talking about courage on my fridge before I buy it again.

I'll admit that it took me a while to like tofu (and also soy milk), as I have sensitive taste buds. But now I like both a lot. The nice thing about tofu is that it absorbs any flavor you give it. So it's a great thing to use when you have very flavorful dishes.

One thing that I sometimes make is a marinated tofu. Here's how I do it:

(for a single serving)
3-4 oz extra firm nigari tofu. I usually slice the tofu, press the slices between paper towels to dry them a little bit, and then cut them into cubes.
1 tsp olive oil (you can put more if you like but I find that this is enough for a meal-sized salad)
2-3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1 tsp agave
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
dash of pepper (and maybe salt, if the soy sauce isn't enough).

I usually mix all ingredients and let the tofu sit for 20-30 minutes. That's enough for the dressing to soak up in the tofu and it gives the tofu and salad a nice flavor.

I think it's great in Asian dishes. I don't really like it when it is a substitute for cheese or sour cream.

I've had it cubed in stir-fry and didn't really like it.... I love yogurt, dry beans, any kind of cheese the stink-ier the better is alright by me, cottage cheese too -so I figured tofu would be an easy match for me. (shrug)

Try using Baked Tofu. I can buy it at my grocery store. It has a totally different taste and texture, and, while a little more expensive, it stays in little cubes much better in salads and stir-frys. I really recommend it if you haven't tried it.

I love it when I eat out. But, I have yet to try it at home!

In the learning to love it stage. Thanks for the ideas, Slinky. Will try to mash it into something
or freeze it.

Still learning how to use it. Have made Asian-style skillet dishes with it and some burger-type patties that were good. I especially like the hard-to-find super firm that packs a lot of protein into a small space (from Trader Joe's); working on ways to marinate then bake.


Peace out,
Mary S.

I love tofu. You can mash it into anything. I put it in cottage cheese, yogurt, shakes, lasagna, and all sorts of other stuff. If you get the extra firm, you can slice it then freeze it. When you defrost it again, squeeze out the excess moisture and fry it or bake it. You can egg and crumb it first if you like it that way.

I've only tasted it a few times also, but I didn't like the texture and it tasted of nothing

The secret to wonder tofu is marinating it. Think acids and savory - rice wine vinegar and soy sauce, orange juice and garlic, balsamic vingar and smoky paprika.

I love it in stir fry but also use it as a substitute for cheese in things like vegetarian lasagne - with the tomato paste (acid) and Italian spice (savory) it is perfect.

I've only had it twice I believe. The first time I had it in a dish, I don't think anything was done to alter it so I didn't like it, I can't even remember what the dish was. The second time I had it was at a Chinese restaurant and it was fried, I liked it but didn't love it. Apparently you can make tofu taste like anything?

Also Vegetarian/Vegan Protein Sources: nuts, seeds, beans, leafy greens, quinoa, and a few other sources

One of the hardest parts of being a vegetarian for me is getting enough protein without overdoing the carbs. I Know that tofu can help if you like it. The problem that I have is that I don't. Usually that is. I have a little Chinese restaurant that severs the creamiest tofu and they actually make tofu dishes that taste great! I had some last night and it was so good that I may have to reconsider my opinion about tofu. emoticon or emoticon
