Jessie asks: What's your take on tofu? No thank you or bring it on?


This is just so good, I have made it several times & it never fails me. This recipe is so simple, no special tricks at all

Bring it! You just need to know how to prepare it. Press your tofu! Once i got my TofuXpress even my husband eats tofu now.

This was wonderful! Have a hard to feed 40 year old male and 11 year old daughter both whom gave up meat for lent. They have never eaten tofu, and loved this dish! It's a winner in our house for sure!!

I made this last night and had leftovers for lunch today. I could hardly wait for lunch! It was the best meal I've had all year. My bread crumbs stayed on in most spots, but I really pressed them on to tofu that had been pressed for a couple of hours (put on a plate with a plate over it and top it with something heavy to get the liquid out). The fresh basil was great. I also added some fresh rosemary. It looked and tasted great. I served with salad and had a meal at 400 calories. Add bread, and you are still at 500. I will make this again and again!

I thought this was a great alternative to traditional Italian lasagna, especially if you grew up eating Italian food your whole life like me. While its not quite the same as good old fashioned lasagna prepared by mom, this is definitely the best your going to get using tofu. It's a little different preparing as well then regular lasagna, however using a tofu press I bought from tofuxpress was very helpful in preparation. Good recipe!!

I just cooked tofu for the first time today for lunch and it turned out horrible! I tried to substitute items I didn't have and I guess I messed it up royally. BUT, I am still going to learn how to cook it (the right way). I am tackling "Tofu Parmigiana" tonight for dinner. Lets see what happens!

Really yummy, even my dad and boyfriend liked it, and they are "meat and potatoes" people. My only problem was that the bread crumbs do not stick to the tofu--but they do stick to the pan. Even with a non-stick pan, though, the bread crumbs just slide right off the tofu. Great flavor! And healthy.
