Tasty reasons to give tofu a try for dinner tonight.
What do cheese and tofu have in common? More than you might think. Making tofu is like making cheese, but with a different type of milk. Soymilk is heated, then a mineral agent is added to coagulate it. The resulting curds are drained, pressed and cut into blocks. Tofu does not have a ton of flavor on its own, but the beauty of it is that it soaks up flavors like a sponge. Tofu gets zip from tangy barbecue sauce in BBQ Tofu Sandwich, subtle smokiness and spice in Tandoori Tofu, and ginger, soy and sherry in the Tofu & Broccoli Stir-Fry. These recipes may turn even the toughest tofu critic into a fan, so give it a chance to shine.
