I try to maintain a balance in my blogs about things I have experienced and those I just learned about. One excellent source of non-meat protein is tofu .  I don't particularly love it, but many people do.  Some might say,"I've just never had it prepared well".  Maybe.  In the September 09' issue of Cooking Light Magazine, they gave an explanation of how to prepare tofu,  which is soybean curd, made from soy milk.  I'm passing the info on and you can try it for yourself.  You can go to Cookinglight.com for additional preparation recipes.

Cooking Light explains to press the slices of tofu between paper towels and press down with a pan, to remove excess water which makes it firmer to cook with.  This helps if your marinating the tofu to help the tofu absorb the flavors more clearly, and to help the tofu maintain it's firmness while cooking.

By itself, tofu doesn't have a lot of flavor, but adding strong flavored sauces or ingredients encourages many people enjoy this vegetarian choice.
