I did it!!! I discovered the secret to making tofu taste less like.... tofu. And I simultaneously figured out how to make it more firm, and.... meaty. Total tofu success, my friends :) The last time I prepped tofu, I squished it flat. And then I cut it all up into little tiny (cute?) cubes. Half of it I browned in a skillet with butter. The other half I froze. Fast forward to last Tuesday: I threw in my frozen cubes of tofu alongside my frozen veggies and cooked up your basic stir fry. And then I topped it all with peanut sauce. You can never go wrong with peanut sauce. And you know, it tasted better than the last time I smothered tofu in peanut sauce! The only difference was that I used frozen tofu this time around. So that's the secret: frozen tofu. Press it. Cube it. Freeze it. Cook it. Eat it. The end.
I'm going to try boiling it next. But I am so pleased with the results a la freezer, I'm tempted to forego the boiling and call it good. Nonetheless, I will prevail! And as always, I'll keep you posted. *B
