Anna from the food blog Garlic Delight shares her tips and tricks for cooking with tofu. Learn about the different types of tofu, how to cook with them and much much more!
This week’s episode is all about Tofu!
I chat with Anna Rider, a food writer who documents kitchen experiments on GarlicDelight.com with the help of her physicist and taste-testing husband Alex. She has an insatiable appetite for noodles 🍜 and believes in cooking without following recipes. You can find her kitchen creations on GarlicDelight.com and other media outlets, including The Spruce Eats, Forbes, NBC News, The Kitchn, and Macheesmo.
Anna and Alex started Garlic Delight after gaining weight and spending too much money on takeout and frozen meals. Traditional batch cooking and meal prepping advice were overwhelming. They gave up after a horrible bout of food poisoning. Then they discovered that healthy, easy-to-make, time-saving, and delicious cooking is possible. That’s why Garlic Delight exists: to share their ingredients-first approach to cooking and “cook once, eat three times” philosophy with busy overachievers who believe they don’t have time to cook at home.
Anna takes us through everything you need to know about tofu – what the different types of tofu are, how to use it, do we need to press it and can we freeze it, among other things!
If you’re new to cooking with tofu, or love cooking with it, I’m know you’ll get something out of today’s episode.
