So I’m taking my first “official” post to blab and vent about food.
Now, as a vegetarian, I am quite willing to try and be adventurous when it comes to food.
But there is one exception.
Recently, I found a recipe on Pinterest that looked amazing. I read the recipe and felt my mouth drooling slightly. Accompanied with the recipe were several, beautiful photographs of the recipe.
I’m calling bullshit!
I’m sorry, but Tofu has to be the WORST… thing (I refuse to call it food) I’ve ever had the misfortune of having in my mouth. And trust me, I have had some pretty disgusting foods, for example humous pasta but that’s a whole separate blog post entirely!!
When looking at the recipe, everything seemed like a winner. But I forgot. I forgot that no matter what you to do tofu, no matter how much you marinate it, no matter how much you squish it and drain it, it still tastes absolutely awful!
My brother described it like this:
“It’s like somebody froze yoghurt and then somehow coated it in sponge and attempted to fry it.”
And I have to say, this pretty much hits the nail on the head. Tofu has the texture of slime. It feels like slugs on your tongue. The worst part is that after 3 hours of marinating , it still lasted of absolutely nothing but somehow managed to taste vile at the same time.
I’m sorry to all the Vegans and Vegetarians that swear by it, but just no!
So I’m warning you all, don’t be pulled in by all the artificial, staged photos on Pinterest trying to entice you, Tofu will always be Tofu. Disgusting, gelatinous cubes of flavourless slime.
Feel free to leave a comment on your thoughts on Tofu. I dare you to find me a recipe that proves me wrong!
