As a vegetarian who eats her fair share of tofu, I'm the first to admit that I am not a fan of silken tofu. That is, when it's used in dishes like stir-fries. That silky, slimy texture totally grosses me out when it's paired with crunchy veggies or soft grains. That signature soft texture can be used to your advantage, though. It makes a healthier alternative to creams and cheeses and can also be added just to increase a dish's protein factor, so try it in these mouthwatering recipes.
