Hey folks!

I imagine you are all fans of tofu here. I was wondering if any of you have any great microwave recipes for it? I am not much of a cook and rely largely on my microwave to feed me, but want to eat more tofu. Any help would be welcome, thanks!

Be safe. I know most people are fans of microwave ovens, but they can be dangerous—the waves themselves, and what they do to the food.

That said, I found this recipe for Curried Peanut Sauce Bowl with Tofu & Kale which is from Isa Does It: Amazingly Easy, Wildly Delicious Vegan Recipes for Every Day of the Week* by Isa Chandra Moskowitz


The Post-Punk Kitchen is always a great resource for recipes, tips and tricks.



My go-to tofu recipe is usually a tofu scramble; load it up with turmeric!

That anti-microwave site you linked to is using a classic trick, scare people then sell them the thing they need to be "safe".

"The SafeSpace product line offers a range of home protection from microwave radiation shown to combat and reverse the dangers of microwaves and microwaved foods."

I didn't see any links to actual scientific journals that proved their claims so I looked it up myself.

My solution is just to not use the microwave, and when my roommate goes, it goes with him.

I am not the smartest person in the world, but I didn't see any sources whatsoever on the link you posted. Not one. Did they make all that stuff up? It seems that way to me. Especially considering I have seen a couple of things online that indicate that microwaves are totally safe.

I like to make a breakfast pudding with tofu. I take either a whole block of silken tofu (the ones in the aseptic packages) or a half block of firm tofu (refrigerated version) and add it to my blender. I add a banana, two tablespoons of pure cocoa powder, a dash of salt, stevia (or other sweetener such as maple syrup etc), and just a small splash of plant milk to get it going in the blender. I blend it into a thick smooth creamy pudding. There is no cooking or heating involved at all.

Tofu mayonnaise is awesome too! Here is a recipe for that:

Again no cooking.
