Tofu is under-appreciated.
So many people are quick to jump on how bad it tastes when they don’t realize they just aren’t cooking it right. I’ve heard people say they tried a piece of plain tofu and it was just so awful they would never try it again!
Well yeah, if you eat plain tofu it’s not going to taste good. Same as plain flour or even a bland piece of meat. That doesn’t mean that tofu is always bad though.
For this recipe I decided to make it really simple and call upon some of the beautiful flavors of Greece. Thyme, olive oil, lemon juiced. I was a little skeptical, like usual, but it really did come out wonderfully. The flavors absorbed and the whole thing, including texture, reminded me of marinated feta. Uh, yum!
