People hate tofu. And it's hard to argue with tofu hatred, at least at first glance. It's ugly, it's spongy, and it doesn't really look like food--you might ask, "What's the point?"
The point is that it's a clean, healthful, powerful, plant-based protein that provides all kinds of nutrients without a lot of calories or carbohydrates and pretty much no cholesterol. In other words, it's kind of a perfect food. And The I Hate Tofu Cookbook proves this. With thirty-five delicious and satisfying recipes--from Sweet-and-Spicy Tofu Nuggets and Tofu Caesar Salad to Tofu Sloppy Joes, Grilled Tofu Kebabs, and Chocolate Pudding Pops--you will come to love it. We promise.
After seven years as a dining critic, recipe developer, and food editor at The Denver Post, author Tucker Shaw now oversees feature and entertainment content at the paper, the ninth biggest in the country. He's written several young adult novels (three for Abrams) and two cookbooks, "Gentlemen Start your Ovens" and "A Man's Place is Behind the Bar," both from Chronicle. In 2004, before the advent of smartphones, Facebook or Instagram, Tucker schlepped an actual camera around New York City to photograph everything he ate for a year. The photos were published in a book aptly titled "Everything I Ate."
