Different Brands and Types of Tofu
I have tried different brands of tofu and now tofu is
a staple at our home. Ever since I tried trader joe's
tofu, I simply don't feel like purchasing any other
brand of tofu other than Trader Joe's.
I adore Trader joe's tofu. Tofu from Traders joe's is
slightly creamish in color and I feel it tastes pretty
different from other brands of tofu.
The best part of extra-firm tofu is that it looks and
tastes so much like paneer(Indian cottage cheese). I also
like tofu because it gets cooked within a couple of minutes.
There are many types of tofu: silken tofu, firm tofu,
and extra-firm tofu. I use extra-firm tofu frequently
to cook simple spicy gravies, to eat with
Chapatis(flat wheat bread) or hot rice.
What is your favorite brand and type of tofu?
