Nothing fosters creativity in the kitchen quite like fresh and local produce. If you haven’t explored your local farmer’s markets, now is the time! Go, explore and see what you can find!

    Recipe: Pan-Fried Tofu

    A complaint we sometimes hear about Morinaga Silken Tofu is “It’s so soft! I can’t stir-fry with it, it falls right apart!” It’s true all Morinaga tofu is silken tofu, which is especially soft and delicate and more likely to crumble than its pressed counterpart. However, don’t think for one minute that silken tofu is off-limits for your stir-fry! All it takes is a little know-how.

    Recipe: "Banzai" Tabbouleh

    One of my favorite things about tofu and soy products in general is how accessible they are. Vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike have a place for soy in their diets. Additionally, soy makes a great alternative to common allergens like dairy and eggs. (Psst, did you know you can use Morinaga Silken Tofu in place of eggs?). What a crowd-pleaser!
