We’ve heard a lot of complaints about tofu:

  • It’s bland – I can’t make it taste like anything!
  • It always breaks apart when I cook it and ends up all mushy on me
  • The texture is weird

However, if prepared the right way, tofu is a not-too-expensive, healthy vegetarian protein that can be full of flavor and provide the perfect texture to a meal.

Our latest video introduces you to two different types of tofu (hint: it’s all about the packaging) and then shows you how to prepare and cook these two different types of tofu the best way.

To a future of delicious tofu dishes!
