Making Tofu Even Better!

I've been wanting to try this for so long, but I seem to always forget to get medium firm tofu at the store. And I have my staple way of preparing tofu so I guess it's easy to forget! Well, the other day I watched one of Mary's what I ate in a day videos and she froze, thawed and refroze the tofu, but instead of breading it she made a marinade similar to Nashville hot chicken and then baked it. It looked so good that I knew I had to try and make something similar!
I froze, thawed and refroze some medium tofu and decided to go Asian in flavor. I baked the tofu first with no sauce, and then I put it in a baking dish and poured over a little sauce made with all kinds of Asian style condiments I have in my fridge!
Freezing tofu really does give the texture so much more oomph! It's worth the extra time to be honest. I would definitely prepare tofu this way for people who swear they hate the texture of tofu!
It's been unseasonably cool the last couple of days. Like only in the sixties!! So weird and scary. The girls love the extra cuddle time though, and I caught these two holding paws which always makes me squee!! And the ugly ink sweater love is still incredibly strong!!


  1. Oh my! I'm am going to have to try this!! I've frozen tofu and thawed, but I've never frozen for a second time. Genius!

    1. It really is worth the extra step. I was pretty dang amazed by the texture!!!

  2. I've heard the texture is amazing after the tofu is frozen twice! I definitely need to give it a try!!!

    I know a lot about tofu, it is my love, but I had never heard about freezing it twice! I am going to have to try this, I love new things to do with tofu!

  4. I still haven't tried freezing tofu, but the twice-frozen method sounds like it's worth it! Kitties holding paws is probably the cutest thing in the world!

  5. My tofu accidentally froze the other day in my freezer, and I was glad it was that and not something else lol Never tried double freezing though.
