    Can anyone give me some tips on how to cook tofu and/or make it more flavorful? I like tofu but when I cook it it isn't the same as when my brother does. When he makes it it is much more flavorful and just plain better. so can I get some tips, recipes or whatever?

    I like frying it with Tamari (soy) sauce and onions and a little garlic. That and rice is an excellent meal, and quite flavorful :)

    I LOVE tofu. It usually takes soem getting used to at first, but after the initial confusion, addiction sets it.

    I second the marinate/stirfry idea. Tofu takes on teh flavor of what you marinate it in, and you can use anything. I tend to use a barbecue-like sauce all spices up and eat the crispy tofu or tempe over rice or just on its own.

    If you fry it, though, use firm or extra firm so it doesn't fall apart.

    Enjoy zee beany goodness!
     
  4. My favorite is called mexican tofu ,,but it is not all that mexican to me ,,I eat it on salads ,,rice,,alone.

    Firm tofu

    3-4 tble spoons tamari
    2-3 tble spoons braggs
    pinch of cumin
    pinch of chilli powder,
    garlic powder
    parsely
    spike or Ms. dash seasoning.

    Cutt tofu in bite size chunks,,, coat in the above mixture,,, bake on a cookie sheet for 45 min @ 350 degrees,,,, bake longer for more hard texture on the outside. It is sooo easy

    I second marintating too! I'll third it, in fact. Tofu is very tasteless on its own - so the sauce is all important. Plenty of flavour and plenty of time to allow it to absorb the juices and flavours.
