How to Press and Prep Tofu for Cooking

  • Remove the tofu from the packaging and cut the block in equal fourths. Place the pieces in the folds of a clean kitchen towel on a cutting board (or plate).

  • Place another cutting board (or plate) on top and top with something heavy. I like putting books. Wait at least 10 minutes, but ideally 30.

  • Remove the weight, take the pieces out of the towel and stack them. Slice lengthwise into strips and then slice across to make cubes.

  • Your tofu is now ready to be cooked. Try our Baked BBQ Tofu recipe. Bon appétit!
