What is Tofu? I got a Tofu Infographic and a Tofu-riffic Recipe to Share

What is Tofu? Tofu infographic to the rescue! :) Inquiring minds want to know.  Tofu has eluded my plate since…well forever.  Like most, I really haven’t thought much of those big blocks of white, mushy looking, whatever.

I gotta to tell ya that most of my vegetarian and vegan eating is really one big experiment.  Although it is an experiment, I’m still committed to the “no flesh” lifestyle.  That includes no fish.  I’ve finally given up the fish.

I’m continuously trying new recipes and really enjoying the ride.  Being an non conniver has really opened up a gazillion food options for me that I’m really loving.

I love to cook, so there is no issue with me whipping my own meals up.  I much prefer to make my own food rather than to go to a resturant  or a mystery kitchen.  Sometimes a woman has to do what a woman has to do though.  Lots of social events are at those marvelous places and & I refuse to miss out on the fun. :)

There are a ton of tofu recipes in the veg/vegan universe.  But before I took the leap I needed more information. I needed to know, what is tofu?

Hence the tofu infographic and I LUV infographics.  :) Enjoy! This will answer the question of what is tofu.

What the Hell is Tofu?

Now that is alot of great info.  Everything you wanted to know in one shot.  I would kiss the infographic creator if I ever met him.  Maybe not…that could go a lot of different ways…nevermind that last statement.  :)

What is tofu
My Tofu-riffic Scramble. Looks like eggs huh?

My Tofu-riffic Scramble

(made before I found the infographic).

1/4 block of firm Tofu

1 TBS Tumeric

Optional ( You can use whatever you have in the fridge)

Roased Red Peppers




Mushrooms (I used baby bellas)

Salt & Pepper

Alright, it does not get any simpler than this.  You decide how much of each veggie you would like.  Veggies go a long way so you don’t need much.

Now – Fire up a pan and stir fry all your optional ingredients.  Once they are soften, crumble and throw in your tofu and Turmeric.  Once you feel your tofu is heated, you take it off the stove and plate it up.  That’s it.

I ate mine with more veggies which I lightly blanched, kale, carrots & cauliflower. The bacon looking item on the plate is hickory smoke tempeh.  I was surprised by the amazing flavors and egg like texture.  It was a winner for me.

I actually made some other tofu recipes and they came out FANTABULOUSLY! :)  (Shock & Awe) you say?  Yes they came out great and I will definitely be keeping tofu in my fridge as a staple for now on.

    This is great information. Thank you! I’ve liked tofu when I’ve eaten it at a restaurant (for example, in a stir fry), but I’ve never made a meal with it myself. Maybe I’ll have to give it a try. I don’t eat red meat, and there are only so many ways to make chicken…
