Home Up Contact Us Cooking Skills Show Index

 

-Tofu scrambled eggs- add a ½ block of mashed, firm tofu with 5 whole eggs and 10 egg whites, that have been whisked, season to taste and scramble as usual for a lower cholesterol/higher protein egg dish

-Puree ¼ to ½ block tofu in a food processor or blender with vinaigrette salad dressing for a creamy version or you can add to any bottled dressing -replace ½ the oil/butter/shortening in cake, muffin and quick bread recipes with soft or silken tofu

-Substitute silken tofu for part of the mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese or ricotta cheese in recipes like dips and lasagna

-Add ½ block tofu to frozen fruit and blend until smooth in a blender for a protein fruit drink- great for breakfast instead of caffeine!

-Use in stir fry: tofu has a tendency to crumble apart if stirred too much, so add extra firm tofu as the last ingredient before serving

-Crumble up to ½ block firm tofu and add to 1# ground meat for tacos, meatloaf, meatballs, sloppy joes, etc.

-Slice a block of firm tofu into “steaks” or chunks, drain on paper towels for 30 minutes. Pan fry in peanut or vegetable oil until lightly tan on all sides.  Drain on paper towel and serve with Spicy Peanut Sauce
