Secret of Cooking Tofu


How to cook tofu properly? Tofu is very friendly food to cook with. You can even eat it raw.
But what does it taste like? Usually not very nice. It has mild taste and strange texture. It tastes a little like wet socks. Not that I've tried wet socks. So the taste itself is not that compelling. But why do people love it so much, what is the secret of cooking tofu right?
The main and key tip for cooking tofu is to drain it well. Remove existing water out of it. You can do this many ways, from squeezing it, pressing it, using a tofu press (device that is dedicated to pressing tofu ) or you can cut it and dry fry it on small heat in non sticky pan without oil. I prefer pressing tofu with some weight and paper towels. Take your time and drain it well. Do not skip this process. Maybe it looks silly and not important but this is crucial step of preparing tofu. The more water you are able to get out of it the better taste it will have in the end. Please take your time and do it right and thorough. You will be impressed with the difference it makes.
Why is it so important? Tofu is normally packed in container with water. One of great tofu properties is that it acts like a sponge and absorbs other liquid it is combined with and that means it will also absorb other flavours. May it be from marinade, cooking sauce, seasoning or other ingredients you cook it with.
But if tofu is already full with water there is no free space for new flavours to get in. Even if you marinate it for several hours or even overnight the end result will not be as good as if you dried it well in the first place. When you dry it well it can absorb more flavours in one hour of marinating then compared to overnight marination of non-dried tofu.
Whenever you decide to cook tofu, dry it first. Even if you are preparing raw tofu smoothie it will taste better.
What is next step? Now that tofu is dry prepare marinade of your choice. Whatever you like. Tofu is now ready to absorb other flavours and it is going to taste wonderful. Guaranteed. When preparing marinade you can use whatever you like except tofu marinade does not combine well with oil. Use ginger, garlic, tamari, chilly, and/or any other ingredient.
Now that you know how too cook tofu it is time to try it out. Go ahead and try it yourself it is very easy. Check out also other nutrition facts and health benefits of tofu or simple tofu recipes.
