I'm new to Tofu cooking but in an attempt to reduce my meat consumption i'm giving it a go. Cooked a couple of meals so far (both too hot by far) as i understood Tofu generally absorbs the flavour that it is cooked in. I pressed the tofu for 30 mins before cooking to get rid of the water content and firm up the Tofu before cutting it into cubes and dropped it in a Chinese type meal. Thought it was very good and certainly came across well as a meat substitute, its also cheap. will pursue this as an avenue of 1 or 2 meals a week throughout 2020.
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

I had Japanese and Chinese girlfriends in the '90s and '00s and they often cooked with it .. I was never a big fan though. Tried cooking with it myself during my vegan phase of 1991-1992 actually, come to think of it. Nothing adventurous. Probably sauteed with vegetables and curry powder.
