Hahaha Even my sister used too much one morning when she was making us breakfast! It's really, really strong, which means even if it's expensive you'll get a lot of bang for your buck! I haven't bought any; she brought me a packet of it and it doesn't look like I've used ANY of it yet!

Sorry, Paula, I have to stop typing when I'm distracted. It's Bragg Liquid Aminos, not the nutritional yeast (which is, of course, flakes). Liquid Aminos. If you find the salt, use tiny pinches. It's really easy to use too much.

emoticon for the ideas! I'm going to try the scramblers. Never heard of the Indian black salt -- will have to see if I can find some in the bulk section at HEB. I've used the nutritional yeast before, and like the flavor, but never knew it came in a liquid form. I've done the Bragg's liquid aminos, and that really does taste very much like soy.

Love all these ideas.... emoticon

I press some of the water out, too. Hands down, my favorite is to make scramblers with it, like eggs. Silken firm, broken up with the spatula. I add lots of veggies, like I would with eggs, and a little olive oil. Toward the end, I sprinkle some turmeric on it, which turns it a little yellow, and a little Indian black salt, which has a slightly sulfuric, peppery flavor. Tastes like eggs! My mom didn't know the difference.

Other than that, the most adventurous I've gotten is to press water out of it, then browning it in a skillet with some oil until it's almost crispy on the outside. Instead of soy, I use liquid Bragg Nutrtional Yeast. It tastes exactly the same but has less sodium.

I was lazy, just sliced and sauteed in a nonstick skillet with a little oil and then sprinkled soy sauce on it near the end so it was kind of brown. My son usually presses his tofu first, then fries it outside on his back yard cooker at real high temp....he really gets into cooking! emoticon

any tips on new way to cook tofu?

I've been known to sneak some tofu into smoothies every now and then! emoticon

When my son was a toddler, he used to love to eat the firm tofu raw, cut into chunks. I never would have thought of it, but one day I was cutting some up to fry and he wanted to taste it raw.

Haven't had tofu in awhile, maybe I'll buy some next grocery trip -- used to love me a tofu sandwich with swiss and mustard and onions.

Paula, great choices - both delicious! The crab rangoon isn't too healthy, but I splurge on a couple occasionally. Yummy!

My sister visited recently and she's mostly vegan nowadays. She taught me a couple of good ways to cook tofu and I've been a tofu eating machine since. I have even been putting it in my smoothies sometimes! I use the silken soft in the smoothies. I love getting all that precious protein without all the calories and fat!

I tried something at an Asian buffet tonight I'd never tried before - Crab Rangoon. I'm guessing it's not what you'd consider healthy, but it was tasty...basically a deepfried shell with cream cheese and crab in it. I also tried seaweed salad from the sushi bar. It was pretty good.

The newest thing I had was when I went out to eat with DD. She ordered some kind of appetizer. It was brussal sprouts wrapped in tempera and fried. It was ok and a different way of fixing brutal sprouts, but I felt they took a healthy food and made it bad. I try new foods every chance I get. Now a days. I can't pronounce muchness spell what i eat.

QUOTE: In the end, we need two things to lead a balanced life a sense of the world and a sense of ourselves; its like breathing in and breathing out. And if you can only get to know the world by stepping out, and losing yourself in experience, you can only get to know the self by stepping back, and finding yourself in contemplation. One without the other leads to a kind of madness. ~ Pico Lyer

QUESTION: Have you tried a new food lately? Did you like it? How did you prepare it?

Dinosaur Kale a couple of weeks ago.

It's been a busy morning already. We had to get up and get ready for DD12's orchestra performance. She did a nice job and seemed to enjoy it. We have dinner tonight to celebrate my BIL's birthday. I am just hoping that I can get my meals planned and perhaps some cooked up in advance for the coming week. Happy Saturday!


Take Care and God bless,
