I am still playing around with tofu and trying different things (marinating in barbecue sauce – yum!), and thankfully I am improving my tofu skills. However, witness the following:
That tofu looks so yummy and innocent nestled in the stir fry, doesn’t it? Well, it turned out to be salty as heck. I think the problem here is that I marinated the tofu in Bragg’s soy sauce overnight, then baked it before I added it to the stir fry. Man, was it salty! Ryan liked it all right, but it was a little too much for me. I’m not big on adding salt to my food anyway, and I’ve gotten so used to eating healthier that I don’t miss salt. So the salty taste of this was quite a surprise. Lesson: Bragg’s is good to add to the stir fry, but maybe not as a marinade.
