Hello everyone.<br><br><br><br>
I am 22 years old and slowly moving into a vegetarian lifestyle mainly for health reasons, but also because my tastebuds seem to have decided that they know longer like meat. Which is rather inconvenient because they don't like tofu either.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I guess I'll be heading on down to the recipe section to decide what to make for supper.<br><br><br><br>
Ciao<br><br><br><br><br><br>
P.S I just moved to Ottawa so if anyone could recommend a good natural foods/veggie store I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi jenangelcat <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br><br><br><br>
Sometimes it takes a while to perfect making tofu. You might find that you grow to like it.

Hello <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I find little cut cubes of the firm tufo sauteed in olive oil until just golden on the outside and seasoned are great in lotsof things (not in a heavy sauce kindof thing like tomato sauce though)<br><br><br><br>
Thin slices of tofu also sauteed a bit on olive oil can be used in sandwiches. It's quite versitile.<br><br><br><br>
Other people have made good looking "cheese"-cakes using the softer tofu. I must try that some day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I've tried it fried like that in curry and stir fry and just plain and it's always yucky. The taste doesn't bother me so much as the texture. It's too much like egg, and I can't stand eggs.<br><br><br><br>
I've tried looking for other subsitutes but the grocery store I go to only has tofu.

i didn't like tofu when i first went veg, but after learning some creative ways to prepare it, i really like it now - even plain!<br><br><br><br>
you can try seitan, or already prepared "meat" alternatives - or beans, beans, beans! - for protein.<br><br><br><br>
anyway, nice to meet you. "meow!" right back at cha <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hi <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
My SO isn't keen on Tofu so i find the best way to hide it is in soups, it gives them a creamy consistancy and you'ld never even know that it's there
