I love tofu (sadly it does not love me and I can't eat it). I honestly don't think it has a taste. It has a hint of a taste but I don't think it tastes like chicken or eggs. If anyone asked me I'd just tell them it tastes like tofu and it's delicious and they should try it. Not very helpful am I? funny

It's like the chameleon of the food world, isn't it? It tastes like whatever it's put with! wink

But by itself, to me, different types of tofu have different types of flavours (like soy milk tends to). I can't say it tastes LIKE anything ... it seems to have its own distinct mild, fresh, nutty flavour. Only after eating it for about 5 years did I actually start to appreciate the taste of tofu by itself, and I now enjoy tofu 'raw' and in salads and such without frying it or smothering it in sauce. It's probably a lot healthier for you this way!

One dish I learned to love is Asian Tofu Salad. happy

I'm sure this will help anyone develop an appreciation for tofu in its own right -- I think it's delicious! happy

i find it takes on the taste of whatever i cook it in which is handy because i find the taste of it on its own quite bland

I usually press it for a couple of hours and it gives it a "meatier" texture. I like it baked with spices..yumm happy

You can't really compare tofu to anything else - when made into tofu scramble (soft tofu) it has the same texture as scrambled eggs, but adding in salt and tumeric it has it's own tasty taste! Next time they ask, just smile and reply: It tastes great! Why dont you give it a try?.  wink

This is gonna sound realy bad but I can't stand the taste of tofu unless its smothered in sauce and such. It has a realy odd taste to it that I just can't..... find appealing.... it's very odd, but I do know that diferent tofus have diferent flavours, and I did eat fried organic firm tofu which was briliant (and downing in tomato sauce). Mostly if i'm eating tofu I'll slice it into very thin slices so I can't taste it and then marinate it.

Perhaps I need some good tofu recipes? happy

Not that strange! wink

Perhaps if we were all brought up in Japan, rather than Australia, we'd have more of a clue. Most people here don't have a clue how to cook or prepare tofu... many are even 'scared' of it.
