Tofu is full of protein: "about 10.7% for firm tofu and 5.3% for soft "silken" tofu with about 2% and 1% fat respectively as a percentage of weight."
Yes, soft tofu can be used in many recipes without being fried.
Tofu in many forms. There are ways to make it more cheese-like, such as by adding umeboshi paste and herbs. If you search for "tofu soft cheese recipe" online you'll find lots of options for making types of soft cheese with tofu.
Tofu is made of soy milk curdled with a coagulant such as seawater extract. It is then cut into blocks and pressed under a weight to get firm or extra firm tofu, except for soft tofu which is not pressed.
Tofu Ever had tofu fries? They are AWsome
Tofu is made from soy milk, boiled and curdled with a coagulant such as seawater or a seawater extract, and pressed into blocks, or sold unpressed for silken (soft) tofu.I think it's soy beans.
Tofu iteslf is not from a plant, rather it is made by coagulated soy milk that is pressed into soft, white colored blocks. Usually flavor is added to tofu since it does not have a distinct natural flavor.
Sure thing. You might want to select a firm variety of tofu instead of a soft variety.
Tofu is made from soya beans, more precisely their milk which is coagulated in order to produce tofu.
I've successfully avoided trying tofu, so far. The master chef is building a bridge tofu.
There are several quick vegan recipes that mainly use tofu. One of the recipes you can make is tofu patties, easy tofu ravioli, spicy tofu spinach quiche, and lemon pepper baked tofu. There are many vegan recipe sites to choose from or you can purchase books on vegan cooking.
Tofu needs to contain tofu to be tofu. So yes, tofu contains tofu. Tofu is made from soybeans.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tofu Tofu is like cheese, but made from soy milk (which is made from soy beans). Tofu can also be made from almonds or black beans. Regular Soy Tofu doesn't have much flavor and can be purchased flavored or plain, and in different textures, like soft, medium and firm.
Uncurdled tofu, or soft or silken tofu, is usually made using seawater as a softer coagulant, directly in the container or plastic bag used for selling it. It is still curdled, but to a much lesser extent than other traditional tofu. This tofu is not drained and therefore retains all its water, making it almost like a light custard rather than the firmer tofu from which water has been partly extracted by pressure.
Assume that 'melt' here is in the same sense that cheese melt, no, Tofu does not melt. This is because cheese contain casein which cause the soft, stringly sticky character of melted cheese and Tofu does not. This may also be because of the heat damage caused in the tofu making process. Cheese made from cooked milk ( like Ricotta cheese) are crumbly and will not melt just like Tofu which is made from cooked soy. The closest thing you can get to a 'melted' tofu is finely mashed tofu with nutrition yeast.
No. Tofu is bean curd which is made by coagulating soy milk and then pressing the resulting curds into soft white blocks. Soy milk is made by soaking soybeans, grinding them with water.
Tofu itself is not 'watery' as in 'running liquid', but it contains a large quantity of water, even when pressed as firm or extra firm tofu to expel some of the water content. This water is part of the water introduced during the soy milk making process. A minor portion of the water comes from the coagulant agent introduced in the tofu making process, for instance sea water in the case of soft (or silken) tofu.

Silken tofu is a food, so I'm not entirely sure what you mean by a "food equivalent" for it... If you mean a 'meat equivalent, there is none. And if you mean 'a substitute for' silken tofu, normal tofu will usually work if the recipe is savory. But don't use regular tofu as a replacement for silken in an ice-cream/mousse dessert; in this case there is no replacement for silken tofu.
If you are allergic to dairy products, but you want to make a cake that needs milk, you can use tofu instead and it tastes just as good! (my friend does this)
Tofu in itself is vegan. Depending on preparation methods, such as the use of butter or certain batters for frying, it may or may not be vegan once prepared. Generally, though, tofu is prepared vegan in restaurants.
chilled tofu is...tofu is like a white square made of something its just when regular tofu is cold.
You can use silken tofu to replace eggs in mayonnaise.
U can use tofu in just about anything! :) -Try serving fried tofu with pasta and steamed veggies, with a little tomato sauce and parmesan cheese! -Or: Serve baked tofu with rice or quinoa, baked squash and steamed veggies, or salad -Or Even: Combine fried tofu or baked tofu with roasted or sautéed veggies and salsa in a wrap -Also: Add fried tofu to a grain based pilaf, or veggie stew -Lastly: Fried tofu is delicious on a bun with mayo, lettuce & tomato (Store baked tofu in a container in the fridge for sandwiches) For more ideas go to a recipe website like allrecipes.com, or any food company's (kraft,etc.) site!! Happy cooking
Tofu needs to be cooked/marinated in a sauce or else it has very little flavor. Fortunately, it absorbs flavors really well. You can also change the texture of tofu (make it more dense and chewy) by freezing a drained block of tofu overnight and then thawing it before use.
