    How To Prepare Tofu?

    Well, there wasn't a Tofu category under Recipes, so I figured I'd post this here.

          This takes longer, but the pine board treatment also works.

              Hi guys...

              It may be funny, but if you're interested let me know. I cook a TON of Tofu. While I love my meat, my wife and 2 daughters are vegetarian. There a myriad ways to prepare tofu. I also have a number of recipes for a meat substitute called Seitan (almost pure vegetable protein, made from wheat gluten).

              Having to cook vegetarian has actually expanded my spice/herb matching skills immensely.

              After my heart attack (1992, 37 years old) I spent an entire year on the Ornish diet: no animal products, at all. No meat. No cheese. No eggs. No fish, no milk, nothing. I learned how to make odd foods hearty, and likeable. (But I never learned to like vegetarian chili.)

              I don't choose tofu (or seitan), but when served one or the other I don't turn up my nose at it. Tofu can be pretty good. I just won't spend my own money on it.

              Regarding the Ornish diet, at the end of a year I'd lost about 60lbs, mostly through vigorous exercise, and my cholesterol had gone up over 10%, to 250. So I went back to eating animals, and started taking statins, and here we are.

                The real secret to tofu is eating it as tofu, and not as some ridiculous attempt at a meat substitute. I never liked tofu either back in the States, and it's no wonder why I didn't. In Asia they make tofu for its own taste, not to try to cover up the fact that the food is meatless. In fact, my favorite tofu dish is swimming in bits of ground beef in a spicy sauce. I would never dream of throwing slabs of it on the grill and pretending it's meat.

                    Rich ... just google "agedashi tofu" (deep fried tofu in a sweet dashi sauce) and you'll see a ton of easy recipes. It's my cold-weather go-to starter dish every time we go to a Japanese restaurant.

                      That's the ticket - deep-fried with a pungent sauce of some kind!

                    the proper way to prepare tofu is to take the tofu, place it carefully into the garbage and pull out the steak you have for backup.

                      I am sorry but, I just plain do not understand how there is any discussion about tofu (of all things) on a BBQ forum, where it should be all about the meat rather than phoney meat that is a wannabe at the very best.

                      I do respect the vegans point of view to a point, but as we are all humans we all require some animal fat into our diet.

                        I dunno, we're all big enough to entertain a bit of out of the usual bounds, right?

                        Personally I don't consider tofu to be "phoney meat" to be honest.. A marketing scam maybe...Trying to sell tofu as a meat substitude... It is not a substitute but a food item on its own.....And prepared correctly it can be delicious...Just like vegetables...

                      You beat me to it. That was what I was going to suggest as well.
