My Thoughts On Tofu
I am picky when it comes to tofu.
I’m not a fan of fried tofu because, even if it starts out crispy, it inevitably ends up chewy. So when I use firm tofu I tend to add it cold to the finished dish, or just warm it through slightly.
Plain, un-marinaded tofu is tasteless and I can’t be bothered to press and marinade it. So I buy flavoured firm tofu that doesnt contain any oil or horrid additives. My favourites are Taifun Feto (which is fermented and is salty-tangy), and Tofoo smoked tofu. Both of these are quite salty so go easy on the salt in the rest of the dish. It’s quite nice having little nuggets of saltiness amidst a fresh-tasting sauce, salad or stir fry.
