After a disappointing encounter with Wildwood Orgaincs‘ veggie burgers, I dove straight to their baked sproutofu and these DID NOT disappoint. This was the Garlic Teriyaki Smoked variety and it came out in one whole ready-to-eat block. The whole block has two servings. The portion size may look small, but they are dense and has all the water pressed out of it already with flavor baked right it. Perfect to eat straight out of the package already. I find these more filling than regular tofu and that is just by sticking to one serving of it.
The texture is firm and dense so it was really easy to slice. I chopped it up into little slivers and it made a great component to my salads. My salad became really filling and kept me fueled for hours on end with the new addition of the sproutofu. It had a nice smoky flavor to it. A little sweet from the teriyaki flavor. The garlic flavor was hardly noticeable. Definitely not oily like their Shiitake veggie burgers. Volumetric eaters will be disappointed with these because the 3 ounce portion sure does look small for 150 calories. Trust me, these are filling. Other smoked varieties include: Hickory BBQ and Mild Szechuan. Other baked varieties include: Aloha Baked, Royal Thai Baked, Savory Baked, and Teriyaki Baked. I think Wildwood Organic Sproutofu has become my favorite brand of ready-to-eat tofu products. Too bad they are on the expensive side and not as widely available as I had hoped. Luckily, Fresh & Easy do carry certain flavors for about $1.00 cheaper than Whole Foods. I can see myself incorporating ready-to-eat tofu in my diet in so many different ways: salads, wraps, stir-fry, etc.
