so perfect what my coffee oh which one second third second it's a big one too it is hi guys welcome back to my channel my name is amy if you're new here and i do videos every single monday and friday on health wellness and nutrition and today i wanted to take you through my favorite ways three favorite ways to have tofu now i feel like tofu kind of gets a bad rap for being like boring and plain and gross and soggy and just like just unappealing in general and i used to believe that and tanner tanner used to believe that too didn't you tanner much more than you much more than me so i wanted to share these three ways to show you that tofu can be delicious it can be nourishing it can be satisfying and it can be a really awesome protein source to kind of use throughout the week this morning i just went for my run it was so good and i'm just sipping on my iced coffee now and i'm going to bring you into the tofu recipes okay before we get into the first recipe i just want to do a little bit of a talk about tofu itself so i feel like there's this misconception that tofu is a super processed food and while yes i mean it is more processed than like tempeh or just whole beans itself the process of making tofu is actually pretty simple i like to think of it as you know like curds and whey how you separate the curds from the whey and then you're left with cheese it's the same concept but you take soy milk and then you take coagulant and a little bit of lemon juice i believe and then whatever is left as the curds that's the tofu i know you can make tofu at home but like i don't know it's just not my thing it's like it just seems like a lot of work maybe that's my misconception but when picking tofu at the grocery store here's some things that i really look for don't mind the package it's like a little bit damp because i just washed it but this is extra firm tofu by superior natural if you live in vancouver i highly recommend this brand i love them they do all organic tofu the extra firm is my personal favorite to cook with and in all honesty all i really ever buy is extra firm i really recommend if you don't live in vancouver and you don't have access to this brand try out a few different brands and don't give up if you don't like the texture of the first one because i have had so many brands of tofu and some of them just like didn't hit the marks some of them were like too firm too chewy too soft they crumbled i don't know try out some different brands but i always look for organic because soy can often be really genetically modified so i always choose organic tofu and then if it's organic it's non-gmo so you're good there so all three of these recipes are going to be using extra frame tofu the only time i would ever really use silken tofu is like as a dessert substitute so mixing it into puddings or mixing it into a smoothie i don't really know how well it would work for just frying up so with my little tofu spiel out of the way let's get into the first recipe which is tofu scramble okay so into a bowl i'm going to add in the one brick of tofu and then a generous drizzle of oil um you can use avocado or olive oil add a tiny bit of spice we're going to add just a pinch of chili flakes and the turmeric is going to be key in order to get it that yellow kind of scrambled egg color so i'm going to add in about a teaspoon again i'm not measuring anything this is really you can just play around with the flavors and then a tiny dash of apple cider vinegar about a half a teaspoon of salt and lastly some black pepper this is going to help activate the turmeric in there as well and then we're just going to mash this all up with a fork okay now all i'm going to do is put this in a pan and i'm just going to fry it up with some veggies you can do whatever veggies you'd like you only have fry it up for about five minutes just until it gets golden brown and then i'll show you the final part okay so we are back in my kitchen and i am going to make the second kind of tofu and tonight we're going to be doing a sesame tamari crusted tofu it is so easy i find that i do a variation of this recipe quite a few nights a week um almost to the point of exhaustion but it's really simple really delicious and it's just so versatile as well which is why i love it so you're going to start out by just cubing your tofu i just cut mine into strips and then we're going to have two separate bowls so the first bowl is going to be like out wet and then the second is going to be i'll like dry which is going to be a sesame seed so i have a bowl here i'm just going to add in some oil i'm using olive oil because it's all i have on hand right now but i recommend using avocado oil it just has a higher smoke point you're going to do about a tablespoon or two and then i'm going to put tamari into this bowl and again about a tablespoon or two this is something you can really just eyeball the tamari is going to add a really savory element and it's also quite salty as well and then on the plate i'm just going to add on some sesame seeds just so we can bread the tofu also i don't know if you can tell but i have the worst face mask tan line which is probably going to be my life for the next foreseeable future but that's okay so a little story time last night i told tanner that he can do his own thing for dinner and i'll do my own thing for dinner because i just like wasn't that hungry and so i just made myself like a really simple basic salad and then tanner goes and makes this unbelievable tofu that he says tastes like chicken um and i was so upset that i didn't have any and you know when you get food envy i had the biggest food and me watching him make this so i'm gonna show you guys how he makes the tofu this is not my recipe not your recipe literally it's like the simplest thing but it's just like the method to get really crispy tofu okay hopefully my really bad sunburn is like not showing through on this but i wanted to show you the final product for dinner say i'm excited about this meal it's probably an understatement so we have that crispy fried tofu um we don't eat fried foods all the time but it's fun every once in a while and then we just have some lemon wedges to squeeze on top kind of like when you get like fish and chips it just helps bring out the flavors and then i have avocado here and then i have my oven baked cauliflower which i love it's just smoked paprika a little bit of olive oil and then some sea salt so i'm going to enjoy this and then i will see you all tomorrow and there you have it those are three super easy ways to cook up tofu i hope that you got some good ideas from this just a little disclaimer the third tofu was definitely not the healthiest in the world because it was deep fried feel free to just do a little sprinkle of oil in the pan but tanner just felt like deep frying it but you know what i have fried foods from time to time and it works for me if you'd like me to do this video with other kind of plant-based products that maybe people don't love quite as much let me know down in the comments below i'm always open to suggestions my video on monday coming up is going to be what i eat in a day but i'm also going to be sharing the health products and health foods and supplements that i don't have and don't enjoy in my lifestyle so if you want to be notified when that video pops up make sure to subscribe and then turn on the post notifications if you like this video please make sure to give it a big thumbs up because it does support my channel and that being said i will see you all on monday you
