anyone have any suggestions on recipes using tofu? it's alright if meat is an ingredient as well, i just want tofu to be a main player in the dish.

and does anyone have any ideas on how to infuse some flavor into tofu? do u need to marinate it for days or something like that?

tofu picks up the flavor of whatever you are cooking so no need to marinate it for days.

i like a stir fry of veggies, all grated or cut match stick, and the same w/ the tofu.

i also like it in the egg rolls i get.

the Buddhist Temple i go to for lunch sometimes is vegetarian. they use tofu in a lot of dishes from soups to main courses, fritters, egg rolls..etc.

as for recipes, no i don't have those. i just wing it?

those are just a few i found on the food network site. basically, if you can use meat, you can sub part or all of it as tofu if you wish.

thanks for those recipe ideas. for some reason when i stir fry tofu even with veggies or meat i still taste the bland "tofu" flavor. but at a thai food stall i went to the other day there was a dish with rice and stir fried tofu + veggie and the tofu chunks by themselves actually had a GOOD taste to it. tasted like garlic and red peppers.

i need to find out how to infuse that level of strong flavor into the tofu. maybe i need to sautee the tofu in a ton of olive oil + chilis + garlic or something and then just toss out the garlic at the end.
