I'm not vegetarian but I do like a lot of vegetarian food (but not quorn )
I had a bad cholesterol reading recently so we've decided to eat demi-veg during the week and only eat our usual diet at weekends.
I always press tofu for about an hour before marinading to remove a lot of the water. If you freeze it for a few hours after pressing it will absorb even more flavour.

I'm also a member of a food forum which has a vegetarian membership and section - it's run by a group of friends and not allied to any business or organisation - you and your daughter are welcome to have a look and even join if you like. The first few posts are Moderated and won't appear until they've been checked to avoid spammers, but once you've posted a few times it's as simple as on here.
