Day 301


I should get a gold star for trying this. Never thought I’d ever dare. In my mind tofu has always been this weird, leaky, gelatinous substance. One of my aunts opened a package of it in front of me when I was a kid — turned me off for life. But it was inevitable it would cross my plate at some point during this experiment. So I went with the most delicious-sounding recipe I could, from fellow blogger REMCooks. Per his instructions, I marinated the cubes in soy sauce and hot sauce for several days and then stir-fried them up. When I popped one in my mouth I was pleasantly surprised. The flavor was great … how can you go wrong with soy and spice? I thought, If I just ignore the texture, I can probably get used to this. But then the aftertaste kicked in. I assume it was the tofu finally asserting its true nature. Should have kept that to itself. But if you like tofu, warts and all, Baby Lady’s Marinated Tofu Stir Fry is a must-do.
