Product Description

From the Inside Flap

One taste and you'll say, "This can't be tofu!" But it is....
Nutritionists, doctors, and food authorities everywhere are telling us to eat more tofu. It's an excellent source of high-quality protein and calcium. It contains no cholesterol and is very low in calories and saturated fat. So why don't we eat more tofu? Because for too long tofu has been used as a substitute for other ingredients. Why turn tofu into a beef substitute in a burger, or pass it off as "cheese" in lasagna, when it is delicious on its own?
Now, in This Can't Be Tofu!, award-winning and bestselling author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone Deborah Madison shows how to make tofu taste great and be the star attraction in 75 stir-fries, sautes, and other dishes. Pan-Seared Tofu with Garlic, Ginger, and Chives, Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Curried Tofu Triangles with Peas, and Pineapple and Tofu Fried Rice are just some of the innovative recipes in this inspired collection.

If you're like me, one of those who thought tofu was made from the brains of vegetarians, you'll be very pleasantly surprised by this wonderful book. I was amused and bewildered by the delightful array of colourful and often magical tofundly concoctions. I actually received this book as a present, being a kitchen snob someone obviously thought it "up my street". They got it bang on! I'd recommend this book to anyone who takes their cooking seriously, or who would like to entertain a veggie guest with something a trifle more appealing than veggie lasagne! I thought I'd read what others have said, but finding no reviews felt compelled to add one of my own. If you fancy a little of something different, or are new to being a veggie, make this book your first stop! Blend tofu (as a substitute for cream)with frozen fruit to make fabulous smoothie milkshakes...this wickedly simple breakfast recipe alone is reason enough to buy this book!

Not entirely a bad book, but not suitable for vegans, as many of the recipes contain dairy produce and meat stock, and it was a shame this wasn't stated before I bought it. It does state however, 'Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone' despite some recipes containing chicken stock, so not the full 75 recipes for me then! Presumably, you're meant to replace chicken stock with vegetable stock, but why put it in a vegetarian book in the first place? Also, you'll be hard-pushed to find some of the ingredients in the UK, unless you know where to look, and have the time and money to do so. For example, I don't have tamari, roasted peanut oil, Lan Chi Chilli Paste or Creamy Nut Butter Sauce to hand in my cupboard. Very frustrating. The quality of the paper and printing isn't that great either - the book is floppy and the paper flimsy. I went through the procedure to return the book, and have been given a refund - I am also allowed to keep the book - they don't want it back!! Ah well, it'll soon be car-booting weather..

I bought this for a friend's husband who says he hates Tofu & ended up buying one for myself too. It's a great book. I loved Tofu to start with & this has given me more ideas. My friend's hubby has grudgingly said it changed his opinion too! :-)
