Tofu can be very bland to taste and boring to cook if you aren’t familiar with it or know how to cook it. At first, a lot of people say “Ew, Tofu” simply because of the texture. A trick to easily get around this is by removing as much excess moisture as possible from the brick of tofu before you cook with it. Simply wrap the tofu in some paper towels, place it on a large plate and then set a large pot (or pan) with some decent weight on top of it. The weight from the pot (or pan) on top of the tofu will squeeze the excess moisture out, allowing it to become crispy when cooking with it. Not such a bad texture now, is it?
