my partner and i are visiting my parents over the holidays, and my poor mother apparently couldn't find regular tofu or vital wheat gluten, so we're stuck with extra firm silken tofu for our protein at christmas dinner. i'm at a complete loss as to what we could make with silken, given the texture is awful for any kind of loaf or cutlet type thing.

Omelets? X-mas brinner :-P

Make quiche! http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/12/mi ... iches.html

Or make a proteiny dessert like chocolate mousse or cheesecake.

i'm with Cornelie - some veggie-filled quiche (or mini quiches using a muffin tin) might be yummy. you could use some of it to blend up for a cream sauce with pasta (it's pretty decent blended with a can of white beans, a clove of garlic, sea salt, lemon juice, etc.). artichoke dip, bean burgers with some silken tofu for a binder, maybe make a soup and add some cubed silken tofu?

Good ideas, or make v'con pine nut cream or substitute and make cashew cream and use it on/in lasagnia.

You could do what my mom did on Thanksgiving and attempt to press and bake it.

It was not good.

How about a mushroom stroganoff dish? (Providing you and your partner like mushrooms. Otherwise, sorry for grossing you out, and hope you find something delicious!)

My vote is for the pine nut (or cashew) cream. You can use it as a topping for just about anything baked. Easiest would be if you can scrounge up some pasta and jarred tomato sauce, and bake the topping over it for about 20 minutes.

Ok, much too late, but stir fry! I love silken tofu in a saucy stir fry with loads of garlic.

we made the crustless quiche from fatfreevegan. it was really good, although the texture was very soft, but it tasted great.

Also way too late, but it's really nice cubed in a soup and also many of the Chinese restaurants around here add it to stir fry when I ask them to add tofu. It's crumbly but tasty.
