With John going vegetarian, he eats tofu for his protein – usually when I am having chicken 😀 . I have tried it a couple times. Once was in a chocolate silk pie, which was very good, but then that’s chocolate. Not to mention you shouldn’t really eat chocolate for breakfast or dinner, I suppose. Sorry Count Chocula.
Another time I tried tofu and it was too soft and tasteless to me. Needless to say, I haven’t been too eager to try it again. However, when we were at the store last week, I was looking at the tofu for some reason and I saw a pre-marinated firm tofu.
Since taste and texture are my biggest issues with the ‘fu, I wanted to take a gamble. John was more than willing to try it and we planned a stir fry.
A serving is only 90 calories, so we just split this package and had 2 servings each. For dinner, 8 grams of protein is not enough for me, but 16 is more like it.
John cubed the tofu and pan sauteed it. Then added a little Kikkoman Triple Ginger sauce for extra zing.
This sauce is really good, by the way.
I sauteed some broccoli for myself and we cooked some calrose rice in the rice cooker. Dinner is served!
It was really good, I have to say. The tofu was really firm and had a nice flavor to it. Much better experience this time. I would definitely eat this again.
By the way, calrose rice is that sticky rice used for sushi and I like it a lot more than brown rice, hate to say. Especially in stir fries.
Who else eats tofu?
