‘Win It’ Wednesday: Say ‘Tofu’ Tee

Written by PETA | July 21, 2010

You know that tofu has truly arrived when homemaking bible Better Homes and Gardens features herbed tofu cakes as one of its “prize tested recipes” and Jessica Simpson extols the virtues of tofu on Twitter. So it was only a matter of time before tofu started getting its own T-shirts.

First came PETA’s runaway bestsellers “Powered by Tofu” and “Tofu Never Screams.” Now, the folks at 11:11 have come up with this retro-cool little number:


Say Tofu Shirt


To take home your very own “Say ‘Tofu'” tee, just post a comment below sharing your most creative use or recipe for tofu. Remember: You can sauté it, marinate it, grill it, fry it, crumble it, scramble it, stew it, skewer it, slice it, dice it, bake it, shake it, shred it, bread it, freeze it, squeeze it, whip it, flip it, dip it, and sip it—just about the only thing that you can’t do with tofu is skip it!

The five people to leave the most impressive uses for tofu will each walk away with a “Say Tofu!” heather tee. The contest ends on August 4, 2010, and we’ll pick the winners on August 6, 2010. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting. May the tofu god smile on you.

    Tofu Crab Cakes Ingredients c. celery c. minced yellow onion 13 c. minced carrot of a small green pepper minced c. chopped parsley t. neutral oil canola or grapeseed 16 oz. firm tofu pressed and dry 1 sheet Nori seaweed chopped c. vegan mayonnaise 5 slices whole wheat bread toasted and processed into fine crumbs can be done ahead 1 T. Old Bay seasoning 2 t. dry mustard 1 t. salt 1 c. Panko bread crumbs for coating and frying Cooking spray To prepare Preheat the oven to 350 if baking. In a lightly oiled skillet saut celery onion carrot pepper and parsley until the vegetables are softened but firm. Set them aside. Process tofu in food processor until it has a cottage cheese consistency but do not pure. In a bowl combine the processed tofu vegetables half of the whole wheat bread crumbs mayo seaweed and seasonings and mix everything well. If the mixture seems too wet and isnt holding together add the remaining toasted crumbs a little at a time until you have a mixture that is moist and easy to shape into patties. Usually I use the entire amount of toasted crumbs however depending on how dry the tofu is you may need less. Form about 10 halfinch thick patties using about 13 cup of mixture for each. Coat each pattie with Panko bread crumbs. Spray or heat a little oil in a seasoned or nonstick skillet until the pan is hot but the oil isnt smoking. Gently lay each pattie in the pan and fry. Dont fuss with these until they move freely when you gently shake the pan. When the pattie is golden brown on one side gently turn it over and fry the other side. Alternatively you can place the patties on an oiled seasoned or nonstick baking sheet. Spray each pattie lightly with cooking spray and bake about 15 minutes. Then gently turn the patties and continue baking until toasty brown.
