Yummy Grilled Tofu!

On Mother's Day I was blessed with being able to do absolutely NOTHING!  My husband & kids took over.  It was definitely a difficult thing for me to do.  I found myself wanting to get up & help or just take over. 

The yummiest part of all this was what my husband made for dinner.  He was making shishkabobs with steak & veggies but as you all probably know, I don't eat meat.  He asked me a few questions about how to cook tofu.  Do you know what?  He grilled the tofu with yummy seasonings, peppers, tomatoes, summer squash and oh my yumminess!!  It was SO good!!  Ok, so for those of you who know tofu, you know you should probably squeeze the water out right?  Well, that's what I have always done.  I forgot to tell him that part.  He drained the water, seasoned it & grilled it.  I was SO pleasantly surprised.  It wasn't dry like I'm used to!  It was moist & not like eating a sponge.  It was yummy.

So, I hope I have maybe talked one of you into being curious enough to give it a try.  Tofu isn't nasty like some make it out to be.  It comes in different firmness too.  I like the silken in my protein smoothies in the morning.  Yum!!  The great thing about tofu is it's a flavorless base that you can make taste however you want it to!  Whatever you put it with, it will soak up that flavor.  Cool!!

If you have had tofu before, how do you cook/season it?  I would love to try it a different way!! 
Do you find it's hard to sit back & let others take care of you? 

Be Blessed & Healthy!!
