Do you have to cook Tofu? Tonight we are trying it for the first time and according to the recipes it looks like no......

But I feel like it should be cooked :)

  • Op, cut into cubes and flavor it with whatever you want then stir fry it until golden, then wait for it to cool and add it to your salad.

  • Yes, tofu is usually raw and tasteless, it will absorb any flavor you give it, otherwise is won't taste like much.

  • Like older said, tofu on it's own is very bland and tasteless. It will take on the flavour of whatever it is cooked with. Not sure what the exact recipe is, but I would cook it in with everything else.

  • It's like a cold salad. The veggies are raw in it and the rice it cooked but cold.

  • You are very welcome, if you ever want to experiment on a bigger range, google tofu recepies and you will be overwhelmed with tons of them.

  • You do not have to cook tofu. It is incredibly versatile. Buy refrigerated tofu; the shelf-stable stuff has a nasty aftertaste. Unless you are certain that a brand is GMO-free, be sure to buy only organic. There are many different consistencies, from silken to extra firm; they all generally need to be pressed before using.
