Cooking With Tofu

There are various different types of tofu, so it’s important you buy the right variety that’ll suit your dish. Firm tofu is by far the best kind to use for a dish like this as it retains its shape and will take on the flavour of marinades and sauces excellently. Firm tofu is one of the most common types, so this is likely what you’ll see in the supermarket.

See our guide to read more about the different types of tofu.
