Oh no... we liked it!
Okay so the title gave it away. We delved into tofu land... and it was good! Tonight's dinner was Hash Browns with Italian Seasoned Tofu(CL). When I took the tofu out of the package I got "the look" of what are you making me eat tonight? It was firm, but kind of squishy, which got me a little worried that the texture would be off. I used red skin potatoes instead of the pre-packaged kind called for and soaked them in cold salted water for 10 minutes. The potatoes and carrots cooked in no time and adding the tofu in last it still had enough time to get a nice color. After cooking the tofu seemed to firm up more and have a meaty texture which is a good thing! So... what can we make next with tofu - this was fun! I never thought it would be something we would like.. but that goes to show you never know until you try it!
