Do many of you out there love to eat TOFU? If so how do you like to prepare it?
As many of you know tofu is actually soybean curd which is bland in flavor. It is kept in water and stored in the refrigerator just before use. When planning to use tofu for a meal, please drain it before preparing it. This healthy staple can be a substitute when cutting down on the consumption of meat. I have been preparing and eating tofu, which has its origin from Asia, for at least 35 years.
If food preparation time is limited, firm tofu can be cut up and placed in soup.
I don't love tofu, but I don't hate it either. I get the extra firm organic variety, freeze it then thaw, then press all the water out as well as I can. After that you can marinade it in whatever and it really soaks up the flavors, and has a better texture. We sometimes bread it and bake it and use it as a meat substitute - like a breaded patty. Then the kids will eat it and not complain I've also chopped it up in casseroles, stews, etc. I have heard that you can make a mock cheesecake with it, but I have not tried that.
I'm raising my hand as high as possible. I love eating tofu. And I'm very proud that my granda prepares it like a master chef. I tried eating tofu in known restaurants here in the Philippines but not a single of them came close to what my grandma can do. But in terms of cooking, I have no idea. I just love to eat tofu and it's cheap too..haha Have a good day!
I like tofu, especially in soups. But I have to avoid eating much as it tends to give me gas. But as to preparing it, I don't think I eat enough of it to worry about how. However, your info is interesting!
I love tofu! It's almost like you just cannot mess it up
For the most part, I use extra firm tofu, and then I squeeze out the liquid. I've heard of the fancy tofu presses, but I just use two plates and the flour bin on top. My favorite thing is to marinate with balsamic and honey because it soaks it right up. The honey creates a really nice glaze on the outside.
Another favorite is to mix it all up with some dill, lemon pepper and sea salt. Then 'scramble' it in a little coconut oil and use it as taco filling with cooked spinach, tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.
We are actually playing around with grilling tofu too.

I love homemade air popped corn with butter. The theater popcorn seems artificial to me. Am I the only one who feels like a cow eating processed corn at the movies?

How many of you eat squash?We never ate squash in my family when I was growing up and my parents still don't. I am just now learning how nutrious it is and how wonderful it tastes.
