No, I did not eat a whole block of Twin Oaks Tofu as part of my lunchbox last Thursday, but it sure made life more convenient. I was very low on time, but knew my lunch was a bit low on protein so I figured I would see how the Twin Oaks Tofu did in terms of standing up on its own. I already knew it did not have to be pressed, and has a nice firm bite, so it was worth a shot.
The lunchbox and snacks:
- Spiralized zucchini, raw green pepper and enough peanut-sauced vegetable stir-fry leftover to make two meals, especially when supplemented with the tofu
- Raspberry Chocolate Pudding
- A carrot-cucumber-ginger juice I picked up from Java Green
I also brought an empty container to store the leftover tofu in. It worked out well – this particular tofu is so firm that when mixed into the sauce of the stir-fry (which was at the bottom of the container so you cannot see it) it was delicious despite not having been grilled or roasted. It is a nice shortcut. Lunch was the zucchini, some of the stir-fry, tofu, and green pepper, and for my small (pre-yoga) dinner, I just had the last of the vegetable with peanut sauce and green peppers. It worked out quite well.

- Specific Disclosure: I received Twin Oaks Tofu from the company a few months ago. That tofu supply is long gone, and I purchased the tofu in this lunchbox myself, but I wanted to emphasize that the fact I received free products in the past did not affect my perception of the product, and the views expressed in past Twin Oaks Tofu mentions on this blog, as well as this particular lunchbox post, are my own and remain uninfluenced.
