the only other time i’ve used tofu at home is in my vegan pumpkin pie recipe.
to buy and cook it for dinner? i wouldn’t even know where to start, nor am i ready for Sonny and Chiso’s side-eyes.
you can bet i was very hesitant about trying the Thai Coconut Curry Tofu meal from Fitzee Foods.
‘oven roasted tofu simmered in a delicious coconut curry broth with peppers, mushrooms, snow peas atop organic steamed brown rice. an Asian delight, vegetarian style.’
it looked DELISH in the package, but prolly cause i thought it was chicken.
well, i’m a foodie so i had to take a bite. a big one.
i’m always quick to tell Sonny not to let past food experiences ruin current and future ones. chances are you just didn’t like the way a certain type of food was prepared. try it a different way.
soooo i had to eat my words along with this tofu.
it tasted as flavorful as it looks. the sauce rocked. it was savory AND sweet at the same time, the veggies were still crisp, and the tofu really did hold its flavor and texture!
TOFU is synonymous with vegetarianism and made with soybeans, water, and a coagulant/curdling agent. still with me? you will usually find two kinds in your grocery store: soft and firm. it’s high in protein and calcium, and known for its ability to absorb new flavors through spices and marinades. it’s like a flavor chameleon!
if you’re not a tofu pro either though, watch this to see how to make your tofu taste like meat:
