Welcome to Like or Dislike, where you get to share how you really feel about ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, even favorite cooking gear. The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell.
I don't think anybody really loves tofu per se, because, let's face it, tofu really doesn't have much flavor. However, tofu acts like a sponge, absorbing any spicy or sweet or rich or tangy sauce you throw at it. And it's gluten-free, dairy-free, and super-high in calcium. You can blend it into a sauce, use it in place of meat in stir-fry dishes and soups, and even grill it and slather it with barbecue sauce. Call it bean curd, and your kids might not eat it, but that's what it is: curdled soybean milk that's coagulated, then pressed into a cake form. You can buy it soft (silken), firm, or extra firm. It's one of the world's healthiest foods, and I've always got some in my refrigerator.
