View Full Version : Stir-fry and tofu

07-10-2001, 11:40 AM
I am trying to figure out what to do with this firm tofu I bought. I am not sure how to drain it, and I'd like to stir-fry it I think, but I don't know which vegetables to use with it, and instead of using olive or canola oil, can I use chicken broth or water?
Tofu is a good source of protein, right? So what else can you do with it?

By the way, I am not a very great cook, so some detail in instructions would be very much appreciated.:rolleyes:

Doesn't it say on the label?

The draining part, yeah, sort of. But no recipes or anything.

Not sure about Tofu but soy has a BV of about 73 which is around the same as red meat but not as good as whey/eggs/chicken.

In terms of cooking I think you can bake it first and then lightly saute it.

There's this other stuff called So-Soya which is much better as it doesn't have the carbs and fat that Tofu does. It's also less mushy in a stir fry.

With So-Soya you just soak it in warm water and then use it as you would chicken.

Do you know where I can get so-soya? I dont think they have it at Superfresh...do health food stores have it?

I posted an article about the effects of tofu on the brain a few months ago. Might want to give that a read.
