Spicy Barbecue Tofu

Tofu tends to get a bad rap. If it's not prepared properly it can feel like eating an old sponge and taste of absolutely nothing. On the other hand, when treated well, tofu can be a scrumptious treat for the senses as well as powerful nourishment for the body.

I first fell in love with tofu through my local Chinese takeout. They have deep fried tofu with sauteed vegetables. Deep fried tofu has the perfect chewy exterior and pillowy soft center. It tastes of all the vegetables, oil and soy sauce from the wok.

I've experimented with cooking tofu at home. I don't really deep fry. But there are other great ways to prepare tofu as a main protein. I like to broil it. I use a classic meat eaters method to give it flavor. I brush it with a glaze before and mid cooking. It works brilliantly both in terms of flavor and texture.

It's totally vegan.

there's often internet chatter about food waste, particularly in America, and how that contributes to overall hunger.

I hate to waste food. I'm adamant about finishing the bread even though the use by date was a week ago. I'm not falling for it. Just another trick by manufactuers to get us to discard perfectly usable food and spend more money.

Bread seems to magically stay fresh for weeks. It just doesn't go stale like it used to when I was younger.

And I fail to understand how garbage food like oreos and keebler cookies can expire. If anything they were never fit for human consumption to begin with.

This whole mass dating system is just one more example of ambgious rules being maniuplated by unscrupulous companies to convince fearful consumers that they need to discard and buy more. Captilaism at its ugliest peak.

I'm 40 and when I was a kid nothing had dates except eggs, milk, cheese and meats. Now everything does. It's a ridiculous and inspidid deception taht's duped millions into throwing out perfectly good food and throwing away money they don't have to buy 'fresh' versions of food they alreayd had and could've safely cosnumed.
Capitalism on the face of it is a perfectly respectable premise. But it has been so perverted by greedy big business.

Still, I fail to see how ably budgeted folks wasting less can benefit those in need. is theere some cosmic wormhole that magically funnels what those who have don't waste  into the cupboards os those in need/?
