  •  Freeze your tofu (3+ / 0-)

    This is a good way to use tofu in cooking something other than oriental cuisine and it's healthier than commercial fake ground beef. Take firm or extra firm tofu and freeze it until solid (overnight or longer, depending on your freezer temp). Then take it out and thaw it. When thawed, squeeze as much liquid as you can out of it. Take the resulting spongy mass and either crumble it by hand or throw it into a food processor until it resembles coarse corn meal. Voila! you now have a ground beef substitute for spaghetti, sloppy Joes, or any recipe that calls for ground meat in some kind of sauce. It really absorbs the flavors of any sauce and tomato, soy, Worcestershire sauces, etc. darken it so it doesn't look "raw".

    •  I don't like the spongy texture (0+ / 0-)

      of frozen-and-thawed tofu.  That's why extra-firm is such a godsend.
