Troubled by tofu? At a loss for what to do with it once you have it? Interested in trying it out, but baffled by the choices? Scared to death to eat something that wiggles like that when you open it? Freaked out by something made from the fermented curd of something else?

Fear not! Look! (Hark?) It's a handy list of tofu resources! Yay!

My favorite tofu recipe of late is the spring rolls from (what else?) Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. They're a little labor-intensive, though, so I'm just as likely to fry some extra-firm tofu (patted dry--drained only if I've planned that far ahead--and cut into flat triangles) in some Loriva Roasted Peanut Oil, then add it to this pad thai. Easy, cheap, and not as bad for me as it could be, particularly if I have some greens to serve with it.
