what else do you have? I like to fry it in peanut oil and make a peanut sauce to go over with with soy sauce, rice vinegar, agave nectar, thai chili sauce and a few T of peanut butter. After the tofu is a little crispy on the outside I pour the peanut sauce over it and then add cooked soba. Yum!

But some thoughts for the future..<br><br>
If you freeze it first and then thaw it and drain it, some people perfer the texture better. You can dredge it in wheat flour, dip it in egg then coat it in a half breadcrumbs/half flour mixture seasoned with garlic powder, salt and pepper.. then either pan fry it or bake it until brown and crisp.. Then you can serve it with your favorite gravy, mashed taters and a veggie.. or you can cover it with some tomato sauce, a basil leaf and cheese if you want and make tofu parm. I have also been known to chop it into 1/2 inch pieces and pan fry it then add it to mixed veggies and a cheese/ faux cheese sauce in a double pie crust for a great pot pie.<br><br>
Pan fried, it's great with your choice of veggies, green curry paste to your taste, a little fish sauce, a pinch of brown sugar and a can of coconut milk over brown rice. You can make a really healthy lasagna by subbing it for the ricotta..<br><br>
What did you end up making?

I like to cube the tofu and saute it in a little olive oil and tamari with some garlic powder and Mrs. Dash. My 2 year old loves it.<br><br>
Also pan frying it with tamari and nutritional yeast is yummy.<br><br>
You can always marinade it with tamari and rice vinegar and garlic and then bake it.<br><br>
So tasty!<br><br>
