If you like sweet and spicy, try crispy orange marmalede tofu. Press the tofu first. Put it between some paper towels and use a heavy skillet or something sitting on top of it to press out as much water as you can. Then cut it into thin triangles. Fry those in a pan with 1-2 tbs of olive oil until brown and crispy. In a small bowl mix 2tbs orange marmalade with a little low sodium soy sauce, some siraccha (or any hot sauce), some sweet chili sauce and minced garlic, then toss it in with the tofu and coat it. Eat with brown or white rice. Yummy! Good luck!

It depends on what kind you bought. Here are some examples.

Kinugoshi (Silken): I bake with this variety to make carrot cake muffins. (Ingredient substitution.)

Tub Tofu: It can simply be sliced and eaten with grated ginger, chopped green onions, bonito flakes, and soy sauce. (Just because it's tasty.)

Yaki Tofu: I cook dishes with this one such as sukiyaki (This type doesn't dilute the flavor).

There are several others, including the fried variety.

If you Google tofu and what you are trying to make, you will find a wealth of recipes.

I'm not on a diet... I'm just learning to make smarter choices

If you have soft silken tofu, there's a recipe floating around for a decent chocolate mousse surrogate.

If you have firm tofu you can slice it into quarter-inch-thick slices, then marinate it in whatever want, and bake it. I did this with a homemade jerk sauce once for an ex who was vegetarian. I also like to make ma po tofu.

for me I make shakes with silken tofu, almond milk, frozen fruit and a dash of vanilla.
for medium firm tofu I enjoy making vegetable dips
for extra firm tofu, I slice it, marinade it in soy sauce and mustard, then coat it in nutritional yeast and fry in a little olive oil. It to me tastes like shake and bake chicken.
Any vegetarian site or vegan site will have several quick and easy recipes for tofu.
Good luck.

I cube firm tofu and saute first in sesami oil the add zucchini, yellow squash, scallions & Tamari (soy sauce). I serve with brown rice topped with Wakame (seaweed). Very yummy. This recipe is from the Macrobiotic cookbook by Avelin Kushi (sp).
