I am a very dedicated meat lover. I have of course eaten vegetarian meals before but tofu always seemed so boring to me until I realised that it’s not necessarily tofu’s fault, it’s how it’s been prepared. Tofu has a unique ability to soak up flavours like a sponge and it provides a low fat, high-protein, dairy and gluten-free addition to meals which is perfect for health conscious individuals like myself and of course those who don’t eat meat or consume dairy at all.
I was sent silken tofu to try, I didn’t know there were different types of tofu, according to many surveys most people prefer to use form tofu. I found this silken tofu to be smooth and perfectly creamy.
Trying tofu from #morinu at home for the first time. Tofu’s ability to soak up flavours like a sponge, provide a low fat, high-protein, dairy and gluten-free addition to meals, whether you’re a veggie, vegan or looking for a healthy and protein rich alternative. Although I’m not a vegetarian it’s always good to try healthy alternatives to meat. This is a smooth and adaptable ingredient. #morinagatofu #glutenfree #vegan #vegetarian #foodie #eat #tofu #
I decided to try a very simple baked tofu recipe, marinating the tofu in soy sauce before baking on a medium heat for less than 15 minutes. It came out as a perfect snack treat and the flavour of the soy sauce had soaked up into the tofu in such a way that it made for a moreish yet simple snack. It was like a smoother version of feta cheese (obviously different flavour) but the creamy texture made it delightful to try.
Mori-Nu tofu can be found on the shelf alongside the other authentic Japanese ingredients in the world food section. I can’t wait to try other recipes with this tofu and will now make more of an effort to use it as an alternative to meat as part of a healthier diet.
