Everything Is Better With...No, Not A Big Slab Of Tofu
Those who are bored with foods are eating wrong ones. I eat three greasy, crispy strips of bacon every morning and never complain, "Yawn, delicious smoked pork again?"
Have you watched the movie "Fat Head" yet? I think you'll enjoy it (I'm buying copies for every vegetarian I know...)

Sorry Amy, I LOVE Tofu.
I find it delicious, especially in Korean stew (jjigae). Really spicy, yum!
It's funny my friend and I were just talking about how many people hate tofu.
Taste wise 'health' food stores tend to make really bad tasting food, that's partly were the bad rap comes from. And people hate the texture.
Personally I like the taste of Tofu better than bacon. I could eat it everyday. Then again I never cared much for the taste of animal products, though health wise they make me feel great!
As a kid I would spit out the dairy and meat and ask my mommy for only vegetables. I also hated ultra sweet things.

Have you ever tried bibimbap (pronounced be-bim-bop)? Everybody I've introduced to it goes face down in the bowl. You can get meat or tofu in it.
My dream meal is a nice, thick, grilled steak, with a side of butter sauteed onions, garlic and tomato chunked up with some sort of semi-spicy sauce like a Korean peanut sauce.
Just a totally delicious meal. I have to do it at home though.

I ate bi bim bap before people had even heard of Korea! (When I was in Ann Arbor, at U of M):

Paen to Steve's Lunch:
Tofu is a garnish!

Yes I've tried it and it's delicious.
I love how Koreans mix tofu, meat, raw egg with spiciness.
I think Americans associate tofu with health nuts and forget it has a strong culinary history before that. Plus health nuts tend to make food that tastes like cardboard anyways.

Tofu is like gelatin, bland and flavourless but sometimes a very useful addition to dishes.
But yes, its better deep fried at a Chinese restaurant in a sweet and sour sauce than steamed with bulgar at the health food store.

Tofu has its place, which is pretty much mabudofu and sukiyaki. It's not a regular part of our diet, and we eat more Asian food than most.

"Sorry Amy, I LOVE Tofu."
Sorry, Ppen. But you can't have a license plate for it.
