what was the recipe you tried? I find tofu much better after it has been pressed as it changes the texture and I usually use extra firm tofu and prefer it deep fried (i'm afraid). Freezing and pressing it also makes it much more spongy and chewy before you cook it so it depends how you prefer it.

I usually make a marinade for the tofu before frying it in a pan.
This is the recipe for 2 persons:
250 grams of tofu in small pieces
3,5 dinnerspoon of soysauce
1 teaspoon of sesame-oil
1/2 chillipepper, chopped in small pieces
2 cloves of garlic, chopped in small pieces
1 cm fresh ginger, chopped in small pieces
You mix all the ingredients together and leave it for 30 minutes. After you can (stir)fry it in a pan. I usually make vietnamese springrolls with the tofu as one of the ingredients.
Hi Jessica :)
I really the love the tofu ricotta in these pancakes. I have never actually made the pancakes, but I use the ricotta for stuffed shells. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_mv9wJX35k

This is my go-to, quick and dirty tofu scramble. It's a great base and you can add your favorite veggies, spices or seasonings :)
