Read this article before you try to cook tofu the first time: www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2012/06/13/to

I've tried the above recipe and it was great, but the prep is the most important thing. Tofu is basically a big sponge that will soak up any sauce you cook it in, but you've got to get as much water out as possible beforehand. You may want to invest in a tofu press (about $20) if you think you want to make it regularly - I used to go through a lot of paper towels.

once that's done it's pretty easy to cook with. I like pan-frying it to get a nice crisp on the outside to contrast with the soft inside.

I've never had tempeh but I've got a package in my fridge waiting for me to try. I'm going to make this recipe when I get around to it, and add it to a noodle salad:

I'll be watching for replies. I have not had much luck with tofu. This week I picked up tempeh to try that. I would love to see recipes for both.

Hello fellow sparklies,

I have always wanted to try tofu but have heard that it's hard to cook with. Wondering if anyone has any cooking tips or recipes you'd like to share.
Thanks in advance.
