Nasoya Tofu Products Review and Giveaway

I’ve cooked tofu in the past, but we don’t eat it regularly. The reason we don’t eat it regularly is because I don’t really know how to cook it. Last time I cooked tofu, it turned into a runny mess. So I was intrigued when Nasoya contacted me and told me about Nasoya Tofu U. Nasoya Tofu U is a fabulous website with recipes, videos on how to prepare tofu, and much more! Not to mention, there’s an App for it!

I learned a lot about how to prepare tofu by watching the videos on their site.

I chose a recipe and decided to give it a try! I made Baked Tofu Nuggets. I used the super firm cubed tofu, so that took some of the preparation out of the picture.

It looks like this:

Tofu is a Power Food on the new Simply Filling plan for WW. So this turned out to be a very low point meal!

I used the handy App on my Smart Phone in the kitchen as I prepared the meal—SO handy!

And this is what they looked like when they were finished:

It looks like a bowl of croutons, huh? lol But they actually turned out! No soggy mess for me this time since I learned how to prepare the tofu correctly. The most important step is draining and soaking the juice out of the tofu.

The result? I’m going to be honest, I didn’t really like the taste of these. They tasted to fiber-y to me because of the wheat germ. Next time, I would add more seasonings. I had to laugh because hubby LOVED these. He actually said, “I LOVE TOFU!” while we were eating. Not what I expected out of him. And I happened to drop a couple on the floor by accident and that cat loved it too…so maybe it was just me. Winking smile

The second product I tried were the Nasoya Won Ton wraps. Now these I LOVED. I cooked a recipe for Mexi-Licious Pot Stickers, out of the Hungry Girl cook book that my Mom sent me yesterday and they turned out FABULOUS!

They would be the perfect little appetizer, although we ate them as a meal.

After we were done eating these, hubby asked me if I cooked the whole box. These were so good he thought there was no way I made them! He thought they were out of a box! HA! I guess that’s a good thing! hehe

Nasoya also sent me an adorable t-shirt!
