Bean Curd Sheets?

So I inherited something called "bean curd sheets" from a friend of mine who grew up in China. They look like giant plastic bags or something.



This picture is of a bunch stacked up. They're super thin, and, like I said, huge.

He told me that I could either make wraps from them, using them in place of a tortilla, or cut them in strips and put them on a salad. Perhaps I'm missing something (like maybe I'm supposed to cook them somehow?), but they aren't exactly the most chewable thing in the world.

Anybody know what to do with these? They're taking up a lot of space in my vegetable drawer.
