We have a "meatless Monday" in our house which always has me on the hunt for new meals with a protein base without meat.

Tofu is a great protein source but you can't fool people into thinking it's meat... so don't even try! However, when cooking with tofu you have to remember just three things - flavor, flavor, flavor! Tofu has no flavor of it's own so it absorbs whatever you cook it in. Just look at the flavors in this recipe! There is no way that this tofu is not going to come out wonderfully tasty.

The complaint some people have about tofu is the texture. You can solve that by choosing extra firm tofu. It will have a firm feeling similar to a hunk of cheese. This is much more appealing than the smooshy texture of the softer variety.

Give this dish a try. Don't even tell your family what you're cooking and I suspect they'll bite into a chunk of tofu and not have a thing to complain about!
