Normally, I buy a reduced-fat extra firm tofu. I only usually prepare it in a few ways. But since I was trying Nasoya firm tofu (thanks to Social Nature), I thought I'd try out new uses. So, I used half of it to make a recipe from the Nasoya site (http://www.nasoya.com/healthy-tofu-recipes/breakfast-burritos/ - halved). It was very easy to cook with, crumbling up easily and yet maintaining a hearty texture. It absorbed the flavours really well, a little TOO well. In short, I don't recommend that recipe! lol. I used the other half to make a small batch of the seitan "turkey" from a free PDF (https://thegentlechef.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/The-Gentle-Chef-Holiday-eCookbook.pdf). I pressed it very well and worked it into the seitan. Though I (again) don't care for the recipe itself, I LOVED what adding firm tofu did to the texture! I will definitely be doing that again, but with my preferred other ingredients. In short, it has a great texture, is easy to use, and absorbs flavours a lot better than what I usually use. It's very versatile. Just make sure whatever recipe you use doesn't have too much (or too little) seasonings. I'm sure I'll be using Nasoya firm tofu in the future for tofu scrambles and maybe pot-pie. Though some of the other recipes I make, I'll stick with my regular reduced-fat extra firm (for texture). I recommend Nasoya firm tofu.
Nasoya Extra Firm Tofu is easy to cut into bite-size pieces and perfect for stir-fries, chilis, and other dishes where you want a firmer texture. Nasoya Firm Tofu is just a little softer and more tender than Nasoya Extra Firm Tofu, making it perfect for grilling, broiling, or scrambles.

Loved this tofu!! I made miso soup with this and it was perfect!! Very easy to handle and cook with. I would definitely recommend this to all of my family and friends!!
Don't regularly eat tofu, but really enjoyed the natural taste and that you can add it to stir fries and other foods. I'm the parent of a child with diabetes and I'm always finding products that are tasty and healthy.
I eat tofu sparingly, but i liked the Firm Tofu from Nasoya. It cooked nice and took on the flavor of the dish I made well. If you eat tofu, this one is worth trying.
Tastes great and can use in many ways . Can marinate, you can use it as a meat substitute. You can also use it in smorothies as a source of protein
I absolutely enjoyed it. It had a great taste and was just delicious. I would buy again and I would also highly recommend. I am sure there is other ways I could enjoy it. I also like how much protein you get. I ate this just the way it came and was easy to eat.
