1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Tofu help needed! on: July 26, 2008 06:05:03 AM
i generally tend to do the same thing but i press mine first to remove more water and i think it forms it together more ( i wrap  the tofu in paper towel, just enough so it covers all sides, than i wrap that in like 4 dish towels and put it in between 2 cutting boards and weigh the top down.)

whole foods makes a buffalo garlic tofu that i make at home. it not the exact recipe they use but ut tastes like it i use like 10 - 15 cloves of garlic and equal parts soy and rice vinigar some black sesame seeds and some fresh grated ginger( i use the kind in a squeez tube so im not sure on the amount) i cube rather than slice the tofu and than i bake or pan fry in a sesame/ canola mix(just enough to make it not stick)

you could cut it up and toss in brewers yeast. just plain firm tofu and brewers yeast makes it almost like its fried tofu nuggets or cuttlets i recomend baking if using this method
