Get Schooled at Nasoya’s Tofu U

Written by Ashley Palmer | September 7, 2011

Tofu is arguably the most iconic—and most misunderstood—of all vegetarian foods. I’ll admit it: I was vegetarian for about two years before I ever gave tofu a chance. Boy, was I missing out! Lucky for you, Nasoya is “schooling you” on this famous food, which is perfect for any occasion!

Tofu U is Nasoya’s latest campaign to teach people how versatile and wonderful tofu can be. Through an easy-to-navigate recipe searchhow-to videos (including how to press your tofu), and tons of resources to teach you all about tofu, Nasoya has got all the bases covered.

I can’t wait to try the tofu thai pizza (just sub in vegan cheese), the peanut tofu stir-fry, and the tofu chocolate mousse.

But my favorite part is the Tofu U pledge. Just pledge to make a tofu dish once a week for a month, and you’ll receive a Nasoya coupon! You can also claim free swag, such as a pair of adorable “Extra Firm” women’s shorts, when you send in the UPC labels of four Nasoya products.

Have you been reluctant to try tofu in your own home? Share your story in the comments below, and let me know which recipe you decide to try first!

    To Kat: Fried tofu is just as simple as it sounds. Here’s one great way… Cube your tofu then put whole wheat flour in one plate and corn meal in another and marinade of your choice in another. Dredge first in flour, next in marinade and lastly in cornmeal. Heat oil of your choice (I like coconut oil)in deep frying pan and either shallow or deep fry – whichever you prefer. If shallow frying, flip your tofu over with tongs until all sides are browned. Hope this helps.

    I’ve cooked with tofu the first time was a disaster, but my mom and I did research and have since learned how to properly prepare tofu. My favorite is letting it sit in the oven with soy sauce and seasoning for a little while before putting it on kabobs with a mixture of vegis. so so good!

    I wish I could figure out how to make it like they do in the restaurants too! It’s crunchy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Whenever I try (not matter how much I press it) I get burned from splatters and it’s still just never the same. 🙁
