What would you consider the best seasoning for this? I've always found it tasteless no matter what I put on it!
Although tofu doesn't have much flavor, it is able to absorb the flavor of sauces etc. You can make this happen by (1) marinating the tofu and/or (2) mashing the tofu into small pieces.
I like adding finely-mashed tofu to my spaghetti sauce, and eating with whole wheat pasta.
"Users tend to aggregate in communities of interest, which causes reinforcement and fosters confirmation bias, segregation, and polarization. This comes at the expense of the quality of the information and leads to proliferation of biased narratives fomented by unsubstantiated rumors, mistrust, and paranoia."

Personally, I like it cut in small rectangles seasoned with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Then cook it in pan-fry with a little olive oil until the sides are golden-brown.

Soft tofu is good for cheese cake of various types.
The variety is endless (well almost)

If you get extra firm tofu and press the water out, then cut into cubes, you can dredge them in cornstarch/salt/pepper then fry them. It gives them a crispy coating, like fried chicken.

Also, if you're fairly new to tofu (or even if you're not), I highly recommend trying it if you can, in a restaurant where they know how to prepare it, so you can see how nice it can be Try agedashi tofu or teriyaki tofu in a Japanese restaurant, tofu pad thai in a Thai restaurant, or tofu banh mi in a Vietnamese restaurant, or if you're fortunate to be close to a vegetarian restaurant, you can try it in a scramble or a sandwich. Yum!
Anyone just eat raw tofu with a pinch of salt? I did. It's really tasty.
I've made my own a few times and it's the best thing ever! I do have a soy milk maker which helps A LOT!
Need to add- people seem to be very particular on how they like tofu. Some swear by freezing it first for the texture. As much as I love tofu I hate it after it's been frozen! To me that gives it the texture of an old sponge

My favorite way to eat it is just to blend it with a banana or strawberries, carob or cocoa powder, pinch of water, pinch of maple syrup for a breakfast pudding.
On rare occasion I have blended it with steamed sweet potato, vegan cheese (Daiya shreds), plant milk to make a thick creamy "cheese" sauce to go over macaroni for mac and cheese. Adding just a little vegan mayo with this makes it even richer and slightly tangy.
