Made from soya milk, tofu (also known as beancurd) has little flavor of its own but absorbs other flavors well and is highly versatile. Firm tofu is sold in blocks, and can be seasoned and cubed for use in stews and stir-fries. A softer set tofu called "silken" tofu is a good substitute for milk or cream in soups, puddings and desserts. For a simple cream dessert, blend silken tofu with sugar or maple syrup, a little vegetable oil and a flavoring such as cocoa powder or vanilla essence.
