  • Yes tofu is made of soy beans. Silken tofu is quite bland and needs spices or marinade or fried up with onion & garlic to be nice in my opinion. There are marinaded tofu’s on the market and personally we prefer tempeh which is a fermented tofu

  • It is soy bean based.

  • You can buy it at the supermarket.

  • Tofu is made from soy beans and is usually quite bland, so you have to add sauces/seasoning to it.

  • Soy-bean products… vegetation…..silken tofu is especially soft and good for blending, others are firmer and better for chopping and stir-frying.

  • It is indeed made from soy and used by vegetarians as its high in protein. By itself, it’s quite boring and tasteless, you definitely need to dress it up with flavour to enjoy it. But it’s good for you

  • It’s a fermented soy product and is full of protein. That’s why it’s a favourite among vegetarians. When it’s done well it’s delicious. When it’s done badly, and it so often is, it can be bland and boring sadly.

  • I have not tried it yet. Hubby is not too keen on the idea. lol!!!

  • there are various kinds of tofu, soe can be grated to emulate cheese, others put in stir fry’s and soups. all take on the flavour of the dish you put them in

  • There are some really great recipes with tofu – it is a different texture to meat but give it a go.

  • I think cheese made from goats milk is called fetta cheese.

  • I actually thought it was made for sheep or goat milk. Anybody know what the cheese from them is called please?


  • It is a great alternative to meat products as it has a reasonable amount of protein but it is pretty tasteless unless you know how to incorporate flavours.

  • Tofu is a soy bean product. Depending on what tofu you buy (soft, firm, deep fried etc), you can steam it, stir fry it, grill it or deep fry it. My husband and I love tofu but none of our children love it. It is suppose to be a good meat substitute too. Give it a go and see how you like it.
