For the longest time, I've had an issue with eating meat at home. For some reason, if I've prepared and cooked it, I get grossed out eating it. The texture makes me want to gag. I often end up eating whatever side I've prepared and leaving the meat to go to waste.
This happens even with things I typically love, like salmon and shrimp. It never happens when I'm at a restaurant, but we don't go out to eat very often, so most nights I barely touch my dinner.
I've always really loved tofu, but have been scared to cook it at home. Once I bought a block of it and it sat in the fridge for six months before I tossed it, untouched. Sometimes when I order a meal with tofu, I ask Matt if he wants any, but usually it's spicy so he doesn't partake. While we were in Seattle, I had tofu a couple times, and Matt was finally able to try some himself. Imagine my surprise when on our last night there, he ordered tofu in his poke bowl.
|This is the brand our stores carry. Right now I think I prefer the extra firm to the super firm.|
|We usually use Patak's Korma curry, but I want to learn how to make it from scratch.|
|Passage Foods sauces have all proven tasty!|
|This pad thai did not disappoint!|
If you've been curious but intimidated, like I was, take it from me - tofu is awesome!
