Firm Tofu

By Nasoya

Connie W.

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.

Never eaten tofu before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I was amazed at how well it took on other flavors and made for a very delicious and satisfying meal

This product was fresh and easy to handle. I used it as a meat replacement substitute but my family was not as into it as I was. I did enjoy that the tofu was able to absorb the flavors I added.

this firm tofu is perfect for frying with veggies or baked into lasagne. I also made pho at home with it, all of the above were delicious. Organic soy is a plus!

This was my first time trying tofu, and while it took me while to get used to the taste, I could not get used to the texture, and I cooked it multiple different ways.

I used this in a wonderful stir fry. My husband claims not to like tofu, so I didn't tell him. He thought the stir fry was great! He was surprised when I revealed the "secret ingredient."
