Delicious, Zesty Tofu

April 1st, 2012

Today we had tofu cutlets for dinner.

Eeeeuh, tofu! I hear you squealing.  And, if you’re not just reacting to the name of the stuff, you’re thinking of that slimy white square you found floating in the dishwater-like “miso soup” that came with your last sushi.

Actually, tofu comes in all kinds of shapes and textures.  The tofu we had today was firm slabs, coated with panko flakes and fried to a crispy brown, then topped with marinara sauce.  Delicious.


But it’s the name that turns you off, so we must find a new name.

New name?  you say.  What’s with renaming stuff, just to give it a better image?

But don’t you have veal scalopini, and aren’t those scallops really veal, which is a calf?  Your steak is really beef with is actually cow or, rather, castrated bull-children.  Your pork is pig. You rename your food all the time, to disguise what it really is.

So, a different way to talk of tofu.  Soy cutlets. Vegetable curd squares. Plant meat.
