Step 1: Choose a firm tofu
Choose tofu marked firm or extra firm. This will give you a more meat-like texture.
Step 2: Press and drain tofu
Press the tofu and drain it of excess water by wrapping it in a towel and placing a heavy weight on top of it. This will allow it to crumble more easily.
Step 3: Season or marinate
Season the tofu with your favorite spice blend, or marinate it in your favorite dressing or barbecue sauce.
Step 4: Use in sauces or stews
Replace the meat in spaghetti sauce, stroganoff, tacos, or stews with crumbled tofu.
Step 5: Grill or pan-fry
Grill or pan-fry the tofu for a great charred flavor and crunchy texture – your family will never know the difference.
