Inexpensive, high in protein, low in fat and rich in vitamins, iron and calcium, and free of cholesterol and lactose, tofu has long had a devoted following. But now Tofu Mania makes cooking with tofu fun and tasty for everyone. Unlike tofu cookbooks that call for unfamiliar and hard-to-find ingredients, Tofu Mania incorporates tofu into such familiar dishes as macaroni and cheese, pizza, mashed potatoes, chocolate cake, brownies, and even whipped cream-without sacrificing great taste or texture. The 120 easy-to-prepare recipes cover, breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as beverages, appetizers, dips, salads, and desserts. This is not specifically a vegetarian cookbook - most recipes replace some of the fat from eggs, meat, and dairy products, and thereby lower their fat and cholesterol content. Tofu Mania includes these tasty, creative dishes: Baking Powder Biscuits, Blueberry Pancakes, Spicy Sun-dried Tomato Hummus, Poached Salmon with Dill and Garlic Sauce, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Macaroni and Cheese, Turkey Stuffing, Mixed Bean Vegetarian Chili, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Brownies, and Lemon Squares.
Author Biography: Brita Housez, a former artist and communications consultant, began to search for ways to cook with tofu five years ago when her husband was diagnosed with high cholesterol. Her self-published edition of Tofu Mania has been featured extensively in Canadian media since its publication in early 1999. She lives in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.
Many simple techniques for cooking and serving tofu are demonstrated. In salads, dressings, soups, sauces, breads, desserts and entrees, in addition to stir fries, vegetable side dishes, there are many ways to get to know the benefits of tofu incorporated into your diet.
Tofu Mania adds zest and variety to the education of tofu eaters everywhere and will persuade the timid to give it a try.
