HOW TO ENJOY

Tofu does not have a pronounced taste or smell, it can even be called bland. However, bean curd has one very remarkable property - it adopts tastes of other products. Therefore, tofu dishes can vary a lot - sour, salty, spicy, sweet. Tofu goes well with very different ingredients, it can be stewed, fried, baked, boiled, marinated and added to salads, soups, desserts. For example, if tofu is smoked, it tastes almost indistinguishable from ham, and after mixing it with cocoa and sugar, it will make a wonderful creamy chocolate cream.

There are thousands of great recipes with tofu, but our favourite is scrambled tofu.
