Meat is expensive and has cholesterol. :(
I bought some tofu because it's healthy, but also because it costs about $2 for a large package. I was intimidated by it, but after looking up some recipes online I tried it. It's not bad.
It takes some prep to make it taste good, though. I put it...
Ok, so I fixed a veggie stir fry for supper tonite. I had the veggies in one pan, the meat in a second pan, and the tofu in a third (kinda of annoying, but, hey, trying to meet the demands of all my eaters and still provide good, healthy food!)..... so anyway, this was my first ever attempt at...
Thanks everyone. I bought some silken tofu this weekend, and I want to use it to make smoothies. How much do I use? How do I store it until it is gone? I will be the only one using it, so it's not going to go really fast. You all are a great source of help and encouragement. Thanks so much...

can you help me?

First start with some soy milk. I make my own, but I suppose even the store bought stuff will work, but have no experience with it. Here is how I make the soy milk.
Start with about four cups of soy milk. Heat to about 85C or just before boiling, add emulsifier to the soy milk...
Auntie Woof's Kung Pao Tofu

For those vegetarians who actually like tofu and enjoy cooking with it, I would love to find some quick and easy recipes that include tofu.
I love it when it's cooked right and I've had success with dipping it in batter and frying it, although not the healthiest way to eat it, it's absolutely...
I really want to go totally vegetarian and have been cutting meat out of my diet slowly (which is hard with a DH that loves meat). I have tried several meat substitutes and there is one hamburger brand that I love but cost $$$ so I only get it once in a blue moon. But I have tried tofu, tofu...
