Preparing Ground Tofu?

Airo | | Jul 24, 2011 04:24 PM

I have a couple of blocks of firm tofu in my refrigerator. I use it in all sorts of recipes but I've never prepared ground tofu at home and am very interested in doing this so there's more versatility in how I enjoy tofu.

Does anyone have any tips on making ground tofu at home? Do you buy ground tofu already prepared?

I was thinking that I'd chop or process the firm (or extra firm) tofu into very tiny chunks and season it up well (of course after draining all of the water out) and then fry it in a pan like ground beef or turkey is often done.

I could do this and face trial and error, but wanted to post here first to get some advice or ideas...and to find out if the supposed technique above is the right way to go about making my own ground tofu for things such as:

--stuffed bell peppers with rice
-vegan tacos
-vegan dirty rice
-filling for vegan enchiladas
-topping for vegan/vegetarian nachos
-homemade lettuce cups

and so on.
