A few days ago I bought a package of Hodo Foods Chinese 5 Spice Nuggets. If or when I buy it again I will check the price. I'm sure it's more expensive than regular tofu. It's been fried and slow cooked.
A few days ago I made a stir fry with it. I added it first and let it brown a bit and then added the other ingredients. It was pretty good. Last night I made Pho. I put the nuggets in with the cooked noodles and just added the broth. it was also pretty good.
@Douglas, It was very firm and chewy.
Grab your fork and thank your lucky stars: our nuggets are pure heaven. To make them, we cut our protein-packed organic firm tofu into bite-sized pieces and fry them up for a chewy texture. Then we slow-cook them in an authentic Chinese five-spice blend that infuses them with bold flavor and just awww.hodofoods.com
I've yet to be successful with marinating it. but I found Sarah's recipe (see How to Cook tofu// easy & oil-free)For me, in my own experience, marinating is the best way to infuse flavour. However, if the tofu is sliced thin enough, a sticky sauce will suffice in giving it flavour.
I'm guessing it was the chocolate mousse, or as a pie with a chocolate sandwich cookie crumb crust . I made such a good one with the peppermint ones. This is the easiest recipe-https://www.nasoya.com/healthy-tofu-recipes/tofu-chocolate-mousse/I have never been able to make friends with silken tofu. It always had a stronger soy taste to me. I should try again. I have a block in my fridge but pretty sure it’s expired. I forget why I bought it. I was thinking of making something awhile back but can’t remember what.
