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.

I tried the Extra Firm Tofu from Nasoya. It has great consistency, and it worked great as a meat substitute for my stir-fry recipe. I'd buy it again.
This is a very good product to work with of you use tofu on a regular basis. I like how firm it was and good texture. I would definitely buy it again.
Easy to use. We had it baked, it was pretty good. Will be trying more tofu recipes. Maybe teriyaki next. I would recommend it to my friend and family.
to be honest I had never tried tofu before this free sample. I got interested because it was labeled Organic and me and my family try to eat as healthy and organic as possible. Once I tried tofu, my taste buds had a wonderful experience and didn't think I was going to become such a fan of tofu. Now I have to have Nasoya Organic Firm Tofu.
Really good and my family loved it! Easy to work with and great flavor. This was much better than the ones you usually get in stores. I would definitely recommend this product.
