Smoothies, you can google and even add to brownies, mix into oatmeal, serve warm with a bit of maple syrup or agave nectar on top

Re: Silken tofu?

you can make yummy soups too. If you google silken tofu and soups you can find a corn and red bell pepper soup that I tried that was yummy.

Yeah I was actually surprised I was mostly coming up with dessert recipes, since I hadn't bought it to try for desserts, lol (and I just made an avocado/banana "ice cream" so I don't even really feel like using it for a treat right now.) I'll definitely look up the soups.

Re: Silken tofu?

Us vegans use it like eggs, you can make a "quiche", "omlette", or tofu loaf. Just put it in a food processor with seasonings, mix in veggies or matzoh meal or whole wheat flour and bake it. You could also make tofu burgers either fried or baked.

There is a spicy Korean soup called Soondubu Jjigae that is good, there are a few variations so you can google and see which one looks good to you.

Re: Silken tofu?

For us Koreans, there's one and only one use for silken tofu: soft tofu soup. It's to die for. Here's a rough recipe, google if you need detailed measurements.

Soup base: dried anchovies and seaweed broth (or substitute with low-sodium canned chicken broth)

Make a paste of hot red pepper flakes, minced garlic, bit of diced ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, diced scallions, black pepper and a little water. Let it sit so the ingredient flavors blend.

Add your choice of seafood (shrimp, clams, calamari, etc.) or else finely diced beef to the boiling soup stock.

When it boils again, add the silken tofu. You'll need a lot of it - the tofu should make up the majority of this soup.

When it boils, add the paste. Taste to see if it needs more salt - add salt if so.

When it boils again, add a raw whipped egg.

Once cooked, enjoy with rice.

ETA: after I finished writing the post I saw PP's response. That's exactly what I'm talking about.

Hmmmm my husband said that sounds really good. Looks like that's what we might be trying first! Wish I read this before we got groceries, but we might get more tomorrow. Thanks!
