So today I did something I have wanted to try, but just haven't yet. I decided to put my new tofu press into action. I have, in the past, had an issue with the texture of tofu but I keep trying. So today I went for fried. I mean really fried foods used to make up a huge percent of my diet.
I pressed the tofu for about a half an hour. Then I lightly dredged it in cornstarch. Finally I fried it. I think fried tofu might be my gateway drug into other varieties. I loved the crispiness and crunch it had. My sister has given up meat as well but she has not liked any tofu I have made her. I force fed her a piece of this and even she thought it was tolerable. I kept saying to the omnivore kids, "I can not believe how good this is." I served it up with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach, mushrooms, and onions.
