Grilled Tofu 65/Vegan Grilled Tofu 65 in Stick

Tofu, this soya cheese is replacing very well paneer in most of my dishes at home. Recently i started purchasing my chinese sauces and noodles from a nearby retail shop which is just 5minutes walk from my place. Obviously they sold many varieties of tofus, from extra firm to smoky flavored tofu. And trust me, i have never seen this much varieties of tofus, however as usual i grabbed a packet of extra firm tofu to make some succulent dish with it. You can dish many fantastic vegan or vegetarian dishes out of this extremely nutritious soya cheese. They are excellent source of protein with many health benefits in it. Tofu can be found in bulk or individual packages. Tofu is also sold in sealed containers kept at room temperature, as they doesnt need to conserve in fridge until they are opened. Once opened, all tofus needs to be rinsed, covered with water and kept in a fridge. To keep the tofu fresh for up to one week, the water should be changed often. If kept in the original package, you can freeze tofu for up to five months.

Known for its neutral taste, tofu has an amazing ability to work with almost all types of flavours and foods. Extra firm tofus are best for baking, grilling and stir-fries, while soft tofu is suitable for sauces, desserts, shakes and salad dressings. Of course, it is up to you to experiment with this fantastic soya cheese.Extra firm can be sliced, marinated and grilled or chopping it up into small pieces and frying it with garlic until golden while soft tofu are very creamy with soft texture. My today's post is a simple grilled tofu 65 which can be prepared easily for a starter or else as a snack food when you doesnt feel like spending your precious time in cooking. Once marinated, these tofu slices can be grilled with electric griller with less efforts. And today's is the final post of this month's blogging marathon with Protein rich Dishes as theme, yes we finished a month of blogging successfully and am so happy for it.
