I got some great recipe recommendations and top tips:

You can see that Ashley mentioned a blog called Eating Bird Food and that was the blog I turned to for my first tofu recipe! Brittany actually responded with some great tips and her favourite recipes herself. I’ve been following her blog ever since and I love it!

I bought Cauldron’s Smoked Tofu and diligently pressed it as that was the advice from everyone, and on the packet as well.

I made this 10 Minute Tofu Stir Fry but adapted it with the following ingredients, head to the link for the method. I used wok oil instead of cooking spray, smoked tofu, rice wine vinegar instead of the nutritional yeast and soy instead of the coconut aminos.

    I really like tofu and cook it maybe once a fortnight or so. I like to press it and marinate it and then bake it in the oven so it gets really nice and crispy, then add it to stir fries/curries. Yum!

      OO I hadn’t thought of baking it! I’d love to hear what you marinade it with?

    Toe-fu is my vote! I love it, but I am never that good at making it myself. I like it baked in the oven too, in balsamic vinegar- yum. Or I buy the basil stuff and just have it cold in salads.

      BASIL STUFF? I am going to add that to my food shop now. I’m a toe-fu sayer too.
