I’ve blogged about the nutritional aspects of tofu before, but how about how to actually cook with it?
Tofu comes in different consistencies: soft, firm, and extra firm. Soft is great for adding to smoothies and using in sauces and puddings. If you try to cook with it, it will most likely just fall apart on you.
Firm tofu is great for stir-fries and scrambles or marinated on its own. Cube the tofu and cook in a clean pan over medium heat, turning occasionally. You’ll know the tofu is done when it stops steaming and all of the sides are golden. Tofu scramble is a great alternative to scrambled eggs and can be made with many different flavours. One of my favourites is Garam Masala Tofu Scramble from 101cookbooks.com.
