To my knowledge, I've never had tofu. It's not anything my family ever cooked and I've always avoided it like the plague. Something about a bland block of bean curd is unappealing to me.
BUT, I'm trying to cut my fat & cholesterol intake by cutting down on fatty meats (which I love:). I have read with interest on these threads rave reviews for Mapo Tofu which led me to buy a block of silken tofu that has been sitting in my refrigerator now for a week. Still have not got up the nerve to cook this stuff.
Any recommendations on tofu recipes I can try as a beginner that might convince me this is something I might eventually look forward to eating? It has to be something where the main focus is not the tofu, if that makes any sense. Not really wanting a big slab on a plate or huge chunks with nothing else in the dish. I don't mind the recipe being vegetarian. Thanks in advance!
Edited: No desserts please, thanks!
