I had some packaged tofu from a stir-fry tonight where I did not use all of it. I was hoping to do something a little different so I would not feel I was eating the same thing two days in a row, I thought it might be good in a salad but was not sure how long it had to be cooked for. I tried putting some salad dressing on it and microwaving it for five minutes (in the stir-fry, it took ten minutes) but after two minutes in the microwave, the sauce was already bubbling. I paused, stirred and let it go another minute but the sauce was bubbling like crazy. Is this now cooked enough to be put in a salad tomorrow? I don't want any bacteria problems or anything. But I think some people don't cook tofu at all, so I was not sure if I could just eat it 'out of the bag' as it were, or not. So...two and change minutes in the micro with bubbling salad dressing. Can I fridge it now and toss it onto a salad tomorrow, risk-free?
