New Bowl

While I was at the market/swap meet this weekend I picked up a new bowl.




How do you like it? It was only 2 dollars so I think it was a good deal.
Now for what's in the bowl. White jasmine rice, topped with silken tofu, green bell peppers, and onions in a oyster mushroom sauce.

It was my first time cooking with silken tofu. I've eaten it as mapo-tofu before. I enjoyed the change in texture.

What do you use silken tofu for?

What a cute bowl!! :)

Silken tofu...I don't usually use silken, but if I did, I think I'd want to use it in a dessert. I had a really great dessert once that was silken tofu pieces in a clear almond sauce. So good!!

Hi Teddy. I tried to comment on your lunch post, but stupid Blogger was acting up again and wouldn't let me. My usual lunch is leftovers. I try to make extra for dinner so there are leftovers. Otherwise I'm pretty boring. I like pizza or PB&J. Really! It's one of my favorites.
I've only ever used silken tofu for desserts not for a main dish. Sounds intriguing.

Beautiful bowl !

I mostly use silken tofu for Chocolate Mousse but I don't make it often. I know my mom uses it for Rosée Sauce too.

love the bowl! and its contents look fab! I have never really eaten the silken tofu, I have only used it for soup base or sauces.

That looks so yummy sitting there in that pretty bowl!
I use silken tofu mainly for desserts. Orange creamsicle and to-fudgesicles popsicles are awesome with it (Bryanna's recipe from her archives) and so are pie fillings and frostings. Oh and sauces/dressings.
Actually, I don't think I've ever used it to actually cook in an "entree." I will have to give it a try!
Have a delicious weekend!

You can add silken tofu to your favourite smoothies for extra protein but to be honest that really doesn't appeal to me!

I've never actually bought it before, I just tend to buy firm tofu for curries, stir frys etc..

I might get some and experiment!

Best wishes from chilly England!

Love that bowl, Teddy!

I use silken firm more than silken soft. Silken firm I use for: maple butter cream or puddings, consistancy and hold for patties and corn fritters, crumbling into anything. I use silken soft for more sauces, thinner dips and puddings, etc.

You did get a great bowl!

I use silken tofu for "ranch" style salad dressings, pie fillings, and ice cream.

I rarely use it but I have added it to smoothies. Last summer I used it in a truffle pie. My friends couldn't believe it the pie was made with tofu!

Whoa.. I've been missing out on your entries lately. The bowl is cute! Too bad I have like a complex.. I could never have things like that that don't match the rest of my bowls!

I only use silken tofu in baked goods. I just don't know how to use it in anything else!

Your bowl is very nice and the food, as always, looks delish!!

I use silken tofu for sauces and puddings. My favorite is a creamy alfredo like sauce recipe I got from VegWeb.com.
