Can tofu be used on canoe trips ? How would you.
You transport it ? In its package ?

Rather than use tofu, I would bring either TVP or Soy Soya. Soy Soya (assuming it is still sold) provides a good texture and works well campstyle cooking.

I am a vegetarian...and have never brought tofu.

I do bring So Soya (http://www.portello.com/products_sosoya.htm) on most trips.

Hell I eat so soya at home once or twice a month.

Yes you can bring tofu.

I like it much better than fake meat.

You can cut the extra firm blend into strips and dehydrate quite easily, either straight from the pack or marinade first. I tend to use a dry marinade/ spice mix rather than add more liquid.

The other alternative is to look for the long life- shelf stable tofu in the tetrapaks, heavier but less prep time!

It'll need soaking. It can take a while to rehydrate so plan some extra time. I may try not drying it so hard next time so that it may rehydrate in about the 10mins it usually takes to cook my pasta. I guess it depends on what you are cooking.

I had sort of planned being able to eat it like jerky as well as using it in cooking.

I have discovered what I consider an ideal protein for canoe tripping. It is soy jerky made by King's Vegetarian Food (http://kingsvegetarianfood.ca/). It is a bit tough and chewy when uncooked, but if you slice it thin it is very nice. I guess you could easily soften by cooking it briefly. It is dry enough that it won't go bad, but not bone dry either.

I met the maker of this product last year. He suggested that the sweet and spicy version of their marinated tofu line dehydrated well and could be eaten as jerky. I imagine other products in that line would be good, too.

Don't want to change the subject entirely, but since it is a related product, has anyone brought miso with them? I bet the salt content would keep it stable for a long time...
