The other day I told my husband to put away the groceries and freeze all the protein…by which I meant all the meat. Next thing I know I opened the freezer and there was my tube of soft tofu looking…completely bizarre.

After taking a deep breath and reminding myself that tofu is technically protein, I decided to cook the frozen tofu and then post it on Instagram and YT Shorts where it went viral on BOTH platforms.
