I'm trying to go meatless, dairyless and eggless a couple days a week.  I have several very good tofu recipes and looking for more!  Any suggestions?

Anna,  There is a tofu cookbook that I've enjoyed a lot called "I Can't Believe It's Tofu!"  I would offer to post some recipes, but I am in the process of moving and all my cookbooks are in boxes!

Wow, what a timely thread, Anna.  I, too, am just starting out in tofu and would love some advice and recipes from "old-timers."

Here is a great website for vegetarian cooking- I use it at least once a week when I'm planning what to make: http://vegcooking.com/
