I find it fairly easy to eat tofu just the way it is. Raw and unseasoned as well. But I still like to fry it with spices until it gets that golden brown look.

I was quite suprised when we made miso soup with my friends that actually you don't need to do anything with tofu and it still tastes great. We had the miso stock though, but no other spices were added (and we cooked it with some shiitake mushrooms, carrots, potatoes and leek). A bit salty, but so good.

Tofu is great for the great variety of ways you can cook it. In the oven, on a pan, in a soup. Everything's possible with tofu.

I just tried this one:
drain tofu and get all of the water out (use paper towels or cheese cloth strainer), freeze it over night. Pull it out the next morning and let it thaw out. The freezing and thawing gives it a chewier texture and lets it soak up whatever you soak it in. I used a peanut sauce, probably one of the best times I've had tofu

Dry frying tofu is really good, I like it that way.
