My mate being a Vegetarian has opened up a whole new world to me and taste-buds...mostly for the better and not only in the taste stakes but I certainly feel a damn sight healthier lately as I'm fueled by fruit and vegetables lol. Me, I have gained confidence in cooking of lately. It's something living at home with my parents I don't normally do very much of at all however staying with her I enjoy cooking for the two of us and have so far enjoyed using ingredients I have never seen before yet alone used! The other night I decided that I'd make us a curry for our tea. I looked in her freezer thinking we had meat free chicken chunks in there and was ... Read the complete review

********** -What is it?- ********** Cauldron Tofu, is a packaged organic Tofu, consisting of a 250g block sealed in its own juices in a plastic packet. It is probably easiest if you think of Tofu as essentially a type of cheese. The big difference is that it is made from bean curds rather than a dairy product. And is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing it into blocks. Tofu is considered by many to be healthy, and is an excellent carrier of other flavours, it it high in protein, and low in salt, sugar, and saturated fats. And of course it is perfect for vegetarians! ******************** -How much does ... Read the complete review

Tofu is one of my favourite foods, and if it wasn't for the cost I would eat it every day. As it is, with a 250g box costing around £1.59, I eat it once every week or two. Cauldron is the brand you will find most commonly in supermarkets, though my local Tesco has stopped stocking the plain stuff (which is what I'm reviewing), so I have to pop up the road to Waitrose to find mine. You should also find it in most health food shops, in the fridge. So, when most people describe tofu as a bland food, why do I like it so much? Because it's so versatile! I have tried other brands of tofu, and I would say that Cauldron is on the firmer side, which is a good thing ... Read the complete review

Being very new to the world of vegetarian cookery, I was not sure I wanted to try tofu because I had heard it is a very bland food. However, after various vegetable curries and lasagnes, I thought I'd branch out. Like many others, I had to search for it in the supermarket. My local Morrison's sell it though, and it is £1.75 for 250g. It comes in a sealed bag surronded by water. I snip the corner off, drain the water out, then cut open the bag and place the tofu between two pieces of kitchen towel. I pat it dry and lightly press it. The dryer it is, the better it absorbs flavours. My favourite thing to do with it is cut it into cubes (I get ... Read the complete review

Tofu is a protein-rich food made from the 'milk' (ie white liquid) that can be squeezed out of crushed, cooked soy beans. It's to soy milk what dairy cheese is to....regular milk. Tofu comes in semi-solid, smooth white slabs and tastes of nothing at all. Health-nuts and vegetarians love the stuff, partly because of its high protein content (it's said to be particularly good for ladies, because of the are oestrogen-like chemical compounds that are found in legumes in general, and particulalry in soy beans. If you're a tofu-eating bloke, I'm not sure these particular 'health benefits' really apply; oestrogen-like chemicals have had a lot of bad press, ... Read the complete review
