What is a good low-fat tofu recipe for a beginner taster?

Question by klokd: What is a good low-fat tofu recipe for a beginner taster?
I have tried tofu once before (years ago), the tofu stir-fry was absolutely horrible, no flavor and weird texture. It was like eating rubber. But I decided to give it another go. a lot of recipes call for frying it, but I got tofu for the purpose of eating healthy. Anyone know a flavorful, low fat recipe for tofu?
I should that I have firm tofu.

* 1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu

How do I make my chicken moist, juicy, delicious, and most importantly, taste like real chicken?

Question by Instantpainrelief2008: How do I make my chicken moist, juicy, delicious, and most importantly, taste like real chicken?
The natural flavor of chicken is in the skin. However, skin is high in fat and I am on a low fat diet. If I cook chicken without the skin, the meat would taste bland. If I cook chicken with the skin on, the fat in the skin would get soaked into the meat. What should I do? I much prefer chicken’s natural flavor rather than some commercial flavorings.
