I attempted to cook tofu recently. I have never done this myself-- I had a vegetarian ex who cooked it sometimes for us, and I generally like it, but I'd never ever prepared it. So, with the help of the internet and the random stuff I had in my cabinets, I gave it a go.
I cut the tofu into slabs, then pressed it between paper towels and heavy objects for a while to get the water out. (And there was a LOT of water!)
Then I cut it into cubes, and tossed it in some barbecue sauce.
I chopped up the zucchini and stuff, too, and threw that in.
Into the oven it went...
...and out it came.
I also had some rice noodles I was going to try cooking.
Turns out, they're sort of complicated to cook and maybe I didn't leave them in the water long enough. They were sort of tough.
Anyway, the finished dish...
I can't say that I would actually recommend this meal. The textures were all wrong and the flavors didn't totally work for me and, overall, it wasn't very good, hah! I definitely don't have the art of cooking tofu down yet.
So, for anyone who is good at cooking tofu-- got any tips or tricks? Or anyone who knows how to cook rice noodles well?
