Katherine loves soft tofu, but she needs more ways to cook with it. Can you help her? I love soft, silken tofu — but pretty much every tofu recipe I can find calls for extra firm. Do you know of any great recipes for soft tofu? Katherine, we love the custard-like texture of soft tofu, too. If you eat meat, try it in the classic Sichuan dish Ma Po Tofu, a spicy homestyle meal of pork, fermented beans, and silken tofu. This is the dish that first taught me to love tofu, in fact. • Ma Po Tofu Another spicy dish that calls for soft tofu is this Korean stew: • Cooking Korean: Soondubu jjigae Many people also use silken or soft tofu in baking and in smoothies as a substitute for dairy. This chocolate pudding recipe can be adapted for soft tofu: • DIY Chocolate Pudding • Also try this: Raspberry Chocolate Pie at Tofu for Two And then, finally, there is the luscious dish pictured above (the same recipe, in two separate places)... • Aromatic Silken Tofu, with ginger and rice wine. • Tofu with mushrooms and ginger Delicious! Those are just a few ideas, though. We're counting on the readers to offer many more suggestions! What are your favorite recipes with soft tofu? Related: Try This!
