All tofu is not tofurkey. I realize there are plenty of people that enjoy tofurkey. I am not one of those people. I tried it once. That was all it took. It’s now on my “Never Go Back” list. I haven’t given up on tofu all together though. The great thing about tofu is it’s flavorless. It will take on the flavor of whatever it’s with. I especially enjoy cooking with firm tofu.
Seasoned firm tofu can be a meal in itself. One quick and easy thing I like to do with firm tofu is pan sear. Of course you can crumble it to get a texture that resembles cheese or even scrambled eggs. You can slice, batter, and fry it. The possibilities are endless though.

When cooking for others that may me skeptical of tofu, I use it to stretch a meal rather than be a meal in itself. In the pictures below, I used it to stretch a seafood dish. The tofu took on the flavors of the seafood. It you don’t try cooking with tofu, you won’t know what you’re missing. Why not give it a try?
