I just pulled a block of extra firm tofu out of the freezer and it will be defrosted tonight. What are the best things to do with frozen tofu? I never freeze it so I have no idea, but I recall hearing that some recipes work better with it.

I do all the things with frozen tofu that I do with non-frozen tofu. It definitely has a different, denser texture that non-frozen and can sometimes be a little more fragile as far as slicing goes, but I mostly don't have a problem with it.

Pretty much anything.

Especially anything deep fried.

I usually crumble it up and use in Sloppy Joes or eggplant/pasta dishes.

yea, basically anything you'd use reg tofu for. i find it a bit more chewy than non frozen 'fu so keep that in mind too. Only thing I actually prefer my tofu to not be frozen in is cashew ricotta as that tends to be more creamy if you don't use frozen although i have also used frozen in that as well and it turned out fine.

Burgers! Bryanna Clark Grogan has a recipe, and I think Colleen Patrick-Goudreau does too, for Tofu burgers using frozen Tofu. It's really chewy and substantial, and yummy.

He speaks the truth! The Vegan Table has a good recipe for Southwestern Tofu Burgers using frozen 'fu.

My roommate tells me yesterday she is going vegetarian and has some tofu-lin and asked if it needed to be frozen. I was a bit dumbfounded, but then I remembered I only eat frozen tofu because I prefer the texture. Does anyone else only eat tofu that has been frozen?

Frozen tofu is extra good at soaking up marinades. I prefer to freeze firm or extra firm tofu, but not super firm tofu. Thaw completely and then slice carefully as it can be a bit more crumbly. Or use in a crumbled application.

I'm not usually a big fan of frozen tofu, but I really like it breaded and fried. Vegandad has some great recipes for breaded tofu, which are delicious with frozen tofu. Especially try his breaded tofu 'fish'.

I always press it when it's thawed, and then it will suck up marinade like nobody's business!

I use frozen tofu in cold dishes, like a mock tuna salad with vegenaise and a few other ingredients. I think the texture is much nicer when it has been frozen.
