Now don't be put off by the tofu, this is something that really freaks some people out. A lot of people have a bad experience with tofu and find it bland with a strange texture. Here are a couple of tips to help out your tofu. First freeze it. It really helps with the texture and makes it feel more "meaty" now don't do this for baking but for cooking it is great. Second squeeze the extra mositure out of your tofu. Grab soem papertowels, a cheese cloth or an extra rag and gently squish the extra moisture out of your tofu after it thaws. this makes it less watery and it helps it absorb flavor as your cooking as opposed to watering down your dish ans making the whole thing tasteless.
