I am going to make a sandwhich out of sliced tofu and my question is: Do I need to freeze the tofu before I slice it, or will it work the way it is straight out of the package. I am kind of new to working with tofu so I have never done this before. Thanks.

Freezing it will give it a sort of chewy texture. I personally don't like frozen tofu - it is too "porous" if that makes any sense. I do know some folks prefer frozen tofu in sandwiches and salads, because it's a little less jiggly and more meat-like.<br><br><br><br>
To freeze it, just wrap well in plastic wrap then aluminum foil, and put in the freezer. You can thaw it in boiling water and squeeze out the liquid when it's done thawing.

before making a sandwich with tofu i recommend baking it first...see the 'baked tofu' thread below for recipes.

Thanks KatieQ - I hadn't even considered baking it first. I will check out the baked tofu thread. So much to learn about tofu and so little time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Fried tofu is good too.<br><br><br><br>
Slice 1 lb of tofu into 6 equal slices. Lay on paper towel. Pour 2 Tablespoons tamari sauce in a shallow bowl and put one piece of tofu at a time in bowl, turning to coat both sides.<br><br><br><br>
Fry in 2 Tablespoons Sesame oil...about 6 minutes on each side or until nicely browned.<br><br><br><br>
Makes enough for 3 sandwiches...

Hey mushroom I do mine sort of like you-except...(and first before you put tofu in a sandwich really drain the water-put it on a towel and put a plate with a heavy can on top and leave it for about 20 minutes)<br><br>
okay back to the recipe-I do the tamari thing and then I coat the whole thing in nutritional yeast and they fry it in a little bit of oil...It is really really good.<br><br>
enjoy
