I have been trying to limit the amount of soybean based stuff in my diet, so I don't eat tofu much anymore. My favorite beans are black beans and chickpeas, but I haven't met many beans I didn't like.

Tofu has some goodies that work against osteoporosis.

I'd say Mix a few kind of lentils with Kidney Beans & some indian spices and you've got a great receipe.

Tofu in general and all soybean based products aren't great for bodybuilders. They have estrogenic effects on males, and the protein that they do provide isn't the best of quality. I limit my tofu intake to 1 or 2 servings every two weeks. I get most of my protein from beans (tons of them, pinto, black, lentils, indian mug), pea protein powder, and nuts. I would seriously look into getting indian beans called "mug" by indians, but I dunno what to call'em in english. Eat lots of nuts, especially almonds and walnuts. And try to obtain some good quality hemp protein, it is supposed to be the best protein you can get.

Forget tofu.

Its called "MUNG DAL". Its a kind of lentil.

Mung, Tuar, Udat, Chana / Chane, Kaali (black), Masoor.

These are all the Indian Dals (lentils) that I can remember for the time being...

I'm allergic to soy, so I think my answer might be a bit biased.

I eat some canned beans, but I have found ones with only 30 mgs of salt in a can (black beans, 2 servings). I have fresh beans, but they do in fact, take a while to cook.

Haha thanks my friend. Are you indian by the way, because that knowledge is pretty impressive. I'm indian myself and didn't remember all those names ahah!

Just to reiterate, those indian beans are extremely good for you. Especially the Mung kind.

Oh, and you've never heard of hemp protein? Look it up!

Im Indian.

OILY? Hmm.. thats wierd.. Cant really tell without seeing/feeling ?

Is it just MOIST & hence STICKY?

Did you buy it from an Indian Store like that?

PS: The best thing I can remember if at all is.. MOISTURE/CONDENSATION can cause stickiness. Thats about it.

I did look up hemp. Wikipedia mentions its a derivative of Marijuana plant.

I know.. Im lazy and need things done fast so I would go to the canned ones too.

This what my mom taught me..
1. Wash & wash properly.. maybe 2-3 times.. to ensure any chemical residue or 'insect / pest' repellant is washed out.

2. Soak overnight before the day of cooking (length depending on which one it is.. CHICK PEAS, KIDNEY BEANS, BEPeas, Black/Masoor usually take longest)

3. Cook in a pressure cooker for faster cooking (still takes a long time). I used to get back from the gym, put the SOAKED kidney beans on the cooker for 3-6 whistles, hit the shower.. come back and cook in a towel :D. Ofcourse, I was in shape then. Cooking everyday.. :(. Too lazy and busy travelling now.

Hemp is one of the most useful plants in the world.

Look into hemp protein.
