Cooking with Amanda – Cooking with Tofu and Tempeh

Soy beans (from which tofu and tempeh are made) have many health benefits, but people often find preparing these products confusing. How can I make it tasty? Should I choose silken or regular tofu? Firm or soft? Amanda explains about the different types of tofu and prepare some delicious main dishes and desserts to show you how versatile tofu can be. In her class about tempeh, she explains how to use it, and talks about a variety of uses.
