    brown some ground beef...cut up a package of tofu (regular) into cubes...put it in w/the ground beef, and add the flavor package. you can purchase that at the asian stores, or some markets have asian sections...and you're set! just serve over rice!!

    our boys (3 & 6) love it!! and it's really easy!! :flower:

    AARP has this online article about tofu....including a link to egullet.org, which shares recipes, including how to make tofu from soy milk.

    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    8 ounces soft tofu, drained and crumbled (1 cup)

    3/4 cup salad croutons

    * In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil for 4-6 minutes or until tender. Stir in the tomatoes, honey, rosemary, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Miso Tofu-

    1 block tofu-medium/firm or firm tofu
    1/2 cup miso
    1 stalk green onion
    roasted sesame seeds
    1/2 knob fresh ginger, grated
    1/2 tsp. mirin
    water
    1/4 c. sugar


    In a pot, add in the miso, mirin, sugar, water, and grated fresh ginger. Mix all of the ingredients together on a low heat for about 5 minutes, constantly stirring. The miso should not bubble up. Towards the end add in the green onion. Leave this sauce on the side to slightly cool off.

    Cut the tofu into medium sqaures, and roll them into cornstarch. In a frying pan, heat oil, and cook all sides of the tofu until brown. Drain the cooked tofu onto a plate covered with paper towel to drain the access oil, then add it into a serving bowl. Pour the sauce over the tofu, sprinkle with the sesame seeds, and enjoy!
