I sometimes melt a very dark chocolate bar and whip it with soft tofu and a bit of (high quality) vanilla. It's like pudding or mousse. I have no savoury ideas.

Thousand Island Dressing from Veganomicon. The recipe calls for silken, but I like it with a tofu that is a little firmer. It makes it more like a thick, heavy steakhouse version of the dressing.

A recipe from VCTOTW uses it in a recipe for chocolate topping for cakes, if you have the book, it's brilliant
Also nice to eat on it's own like moose.

My favourite though is to make a savoury onion tart. I think it's just pastry, and then sweated onions with sugar, then blend silken tofu, a little soya cream/milk (or other milk) mustard, thyme and seasoning untill really smooth. Mix and put in the blind baked pastry case, and put in the oven. I don't remember the specifics but if you were really interested I could find the recipe book and copy it down for you
Or you could probally figure it out, the mixture just needs to be reasonable thick but pourable, I don't think there's a science to it like baking, I think there's a lot of room for give or take!

I second this but with a few pieces of dried seaweed as well. It's like a blanket and a warm fire somehow transferred into a bowl of soup lol, and you can make it in 3 minutes.

I'd imagine I could probably use it like silken right? Just well drained and the package size is different. Has anyone else noticed that Nasoya tastes different than Mori Nu?

What's the brand name? So I can figure out exactly what you have


Something you mash would probably work best. Something like tofu scramble or a sandwich spread.

Tofu mannicotti is good. There's a recipe on the Nasoya site. I haven't had that recipe, but manicotti was one of the first things I ever made with tofu.

Dang, now I want mannicotti. However it's spelled. Oooh, or stuffed pasta shells. I haven't cooked straight up Italian-American in AGES ...

now that sounds really good....I'm thinking soft tofu well drained should be about the same as mori nu firm silken, well drained, right?

I'm not sure. If I understand the difference between soft regular tofu and silken tofu there should be textural differences, but I'm not sure how much they'd impact a recipe. I've only actually cooked with firm silken and soft silken (only two I could find in stores 15 or so years ago). I finally bought some regular tofu last year (water-packed and everything!), but I never got around to doing anything with it.

Vegan French Toast:

Toss it in a blender with 1/2 cup - 1 cup of soymilk.
Add a bit of cinnamon and vanilla.

Pour this into a shallow dish.
Coat slices of bread in your mixture, and fry until golden brown.
Serve how you normally serve pancakes and waffles.

It's REALLY good!!!!
