I've just started cooking with tofu at home. I've tried twice and both times it smelled like pumpkin. Is this normal? Both packages were still fresh according to the expiration date. I tried a different brand the second time and it was so bad that after I cooked it in a curry I could still smell the pumpkin. I hate pumpkin!
I'm really perplexed because I've eaten plenty of tofu in restaurants and I've never noticed a pumpkin odor.
