Tofu - the Unsung Hero!

Hey everyone, I've only recently (past month or two) really gotten into cooking for myself. One item I have been experimenting with to some extent is extra-firm tofu. I've found one really easy way to cook it that I enjoy and love, but I need MORE! Specifically I like it in bite-size morsels, and as crunchy as I can get it. I prefer not to cook with oils because I have bad skin and the smell always makes me nauseous.

Hi people!! :) the doctor told my husband the other day to stop eating so much fat and greasy meat so I started buying tofu and soy based products. But I have to dwell with the fact that my husband does not like tofu (except when having miso) so I need easy and tasty recipes to "catch" him. Something like deep fried tofu seems a good way to start but I have no idea how to do it :( Is it ok to use olive oil? Can it be eaten raw on salads? Argghhh! I saw maki's bacon+tofu recipe but i guess it's of no use for us since bacon is greasy meat :( Aww Please help! >_< Thanks :D

What to do with Tofu?

During Maki's Veggie month, I dedicated three out of the seven days of the week to just eat vegetables and fruits. So, it was kinda like being a vegetarian for half the week. Even though, I was thrilled about the month's theme, this was even more exciting! It was a out-of-whim call to do, but in the end it paid off. After twenty-nine days of this half vegetarian/ half omnivore, I decided to go 100% vegetarian. Risky.. yes... but this site has enough yummies to satisfy me. :]
