  • Organic tofu, handmade to a traditional Japanese recipe that's really rather tasty.
  • Too Good To Be ‘FU'
  • Tihs is a typo. So as this. But Tofoo is definitely not. We've spelt it differently because it's Not Like Other Tofu. It's handmade to a traditional Japanese recipe to be about a Zillion Times Tastier - so it's perfect for flexitarians, carnivores and real foodies, as well as veggies and vegans.
  • Plus, it's organic, 100% natural, dairy, gluten & yeast free and made from sustainable, GM Free soya beans.
  • Naked Tofoo
  • We've left this Tofoo without a stitch on, so you can really Show Off Your Skills in the kitchen.
  • Flamboyant fajitas, stupendous stir-fries and Extravagant Enchiladas
  • Sure, it's naked, but we leave plenty to the Imagination.
  • To give our Tofoo better taste & texture, we use a little thing called…
  • Nigari, a natural ingredient created from seawater.

For all those on this thread who buy from chinese grocers will know that you can get 600g (net weight) of fresh tofu for about £1.40 (£2.33/kg peeps).

The price markup for modern western companies making a cheap product expensive as its trendy to be meat free, more healthy protein, and eco friendly is disgraceful. 50p off :scoff

Wow. Isn't that almost the price, per kg, of a cheap beef joint?



You're comparing them by weight? Tofu doesn't weigh as much as beef. Using your metric, prawn crackers are a the biggest rip off of all time. It's beside the point anyway. People buying tofu aren't comparing it with beef...

Great price. True you can get cheaper tofu in chinese supermarkets - but not everyone lives near a chinese supermarket! Also, tofoo does have an advantage over 'traditional' tofu as it comes already pressed (you don't need to put something heavy over it for a few hours before you use it)!

For those looking to try tofu for the first time, this is my favourite recipe! Although I double the ammount of marinade they suggest (and if you use Tofoo like in this deal, you can skip step 1 - you don't need to press tofoo). budgetbytes.com/soy…ce/

Can someone give me some tips where to find Tofu in store? The Internet suggested in the produce aisle but couldn't find any in my local Tesco Extra (I probably should have asked a member of staff but wasn't bothered enough to find someone...)

It’s on the same aisle as the ready meals, they have a meat free fridge, the Tesco I go to has a very small amount of tofu and it’s not easy to spot it’s either on the top shelf or the bottom shelf, Quorn stuff is at eye level.

yes indeed, i can never buy these 'westernised' products, way better to find those hidden out of place chinese shops and buy the tofu there. It is shorter life span but it tastes really good if cooked same day.

Cauldron Tofu is usually around £2 for just under 400g in most "Western" supermarkets

Glad I read your comment. Never new that and we have a few Chinese grocers in Nottingham so I’ll check that out for sure
Actually a good price. Whenever I get tofu i get this brand as its realy firm, and actually tastes good. The others are a bit wishy washy. Makes for a change from meats and fish, and healthy too.
Tofu with taste......no such thing exists

Is there any Chinese grocers you recommend or buy from?

I can’t comment about what’s local to you. But if in Cardiff, the. Global Foods cash and carry, Eastern Chinese Supermarket are good. I’ve not been to all of them. If in Bristol then Wai Yee Hong is large and convenient, if around a WingYip store then that’s good. Otherwise a safe bet is find out if you have China Town in your city/town and go wander. London China town has loads of supermarkets all respectable as I understand. Otherwise you google search and google reviews and take your chance. Just check it’s in date before you buy and that the fresh ones are refrigerated
I love this! Thanks!
Only Chinese takeaways manage to make tofu taste of anything.

I just press the Chinese style with my hands then cut it up and dab kitchen roll on it and fry it and tbh it cooks and crisps up fine

I think you've missed the point. I think the point they were making was that you would typically use less weight of Tofu to prepare a meal than you would of beef. So comparing the price per kg isn't really a useful comparison.
How do you guys press tofu?

Normally buy Cauldron as the Tofoo stuff costs more for less product ... how does it compare?

I can't recall the texture an taste of the Cauldron stuff I'm afraid; though I know when I did try it, it's not left an impression enough for me to try again. They are good in that they do different flavours though. For me Tofoo just seemed right from the get go. No pressing, cuts like a firm cheese, doesn't fall apart, and absorbs flavour really easily.

Here's a good taste test for comparisons (and why I originally tried, and then agreed Tofoo was my fav).

Enjoy :-)
Made some tofu last night with some spices on it....my god it was bland.Need to watch some vids on how to cook it better and soak up some of the flavours of the marinade that I use.
djdope19/08/2020 11:26

Between two chopping boards or plates with a heavy pan on top. Microwaving it first seems to help get some moisture out as well.

Chop this up and mix it with some superhot chilli powder, quality soy sauce and olive oil. You won't regret it *

Usually get Cauldron for the same reason here. Toffoo is firmer, but recently my favourite way of cooking tofu is with a little oil and salt 30+ mins in 200C+ fan oven. Both brands work well for this. If you're frying directly and moving tofu around a pan, I think Toffoo holds up better. If you wanted tofu scramble though, Cauldron would win (value).
