Hello all!

I'm looking for some interesting ways to start introducing tofu into my diet. It holds a couple of key nutrients that I find pretty lacking elsewhere in my diet.

Thing is, I've only eaten tofu a few times in my life, of which it was very bland and rubbery, so I didn't enjoy it.

So, I would like you to pretend you're introducing your best friend to Tofu, and share your secrets with me, please!

Well, my dad used to stick it in protein shakes in the morning.  He'd put in strawberries and bananas and vanilla and ice cubes, a splash of soy milk and tofu.  Kept me really full for a really long time.

If you don't like the texture, you might not like this.  But my absolute favorite way to eat tofu is the way that my little Japanese grandmother often serves it.  She just slices extra soft, silken tofu (not the firm kind!) and pours soy sauce over it.  It's cool and salty.  So yummy!

Silken tofu does blend well in smoothies and other dishes.  If I think of any recipes that I use it in, I'll let you know!

That would be awesome. Smiley I see lots of recipes pop up every now and again, people putting it into salads or frying it etc, and it always looks so yummy. I haven't tried any, but I really want to. And I'll have to do it without warning my boyfriend, because I don't think he likes it all that much.

i'm going to be watching this thread.  My 5 yr old decided that meat is gross for the most part.  And I'm concerned he's not getting enough protien.   We've been eating soft tofu iin smoothies, but frozen fruit can get expensive.   can't wait to see what everyone has to share

You could always buy fresh berries and then freeze them.  It could be cheaper that way.
