Ok, here's the thing.....I am not a fan of tofu. Is there any way to make it not taste like tofu? (I haven't had any luck yet). What recipes do you have that really mask the taste?

I am not a big tofu fan either but would love to eat it more often for the protein so I am curious what others suggest.
The only thing I can really think of is to make a tofu scramble. If you season it well (I like Brags, nutritional yeast, a good garlicy salt-free seasoning blend and tumeric for color) it can be really yummy & non-tofuish taasting
How are you preparing the tofu? Before I learned how to drain and press it, I thought tofu was gross. But now that I'm preparing it differently, it's delicious. It tastes like whatever marinade or sauce I use...I think it's more able to pick up the flavors when it's not sopping wet. I also started dry frying the tofu before I cook with it. You just drain and press the tofu, cut it in slabs, and cook it on medium high in a dry (no oil) non stick pan until it browns. I think the texture of tofu is so much better if it has some kind of "crust" from frying or baking it.
Here are my three current favorite tofu recipes:
Grilled Citrus Tofu
Maple-Chili Grilled Tofu
Smoky Pomegranate Tofu
