TofuXpress Tofu Press Giveaway

April is National Soyfoods Month and I partnered with the Soyfoods Association to bring you this giveaway.

Included in the giveaway:

WildWoods product voucher for any of their soy food products

TofuXpress Tofu Press

I’ve had my tofu press for a few years and would not make tofu without it.

Pressed tofu is firmer and cooks up so much better than unpressed tofu. The difference is night and day in the finished product.

It does a fabulous job of pressing out the water, which is contained neatly inside the little box.

Sure, you can press tofu between two heavy frying pans but wiping up the water that is released with dozens of paper towels is a messy and inconvenient chore.

In honor of National Soy Foods Month, did you know that:

Soyfoods are rich in nutrients and promote healthy eating.

Soyfoods are also a great source of iron, fiber, magnesium and zinc.

Fruit soy smoothies with soymilk or soy yogurt are a fun way to ensure proper calcium, and soy burgers or soy crumbles in place of ground beef are a great way to reduce calories, cholesterol and saturated fast.

Soy meat substitutes, such as soy ground, cook up in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional meats, and it’s ideal for pre-made meals that can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator.

Cooking with soy also provides an excellent opportunity for families to spend quality time together because unlike traditional meats, there is little concern about cooking through or cross contamination, so kids can be more involved in the meal preparation.

Soyfoods make delicious meals. They are great as a staple ingredient or used as a substitute in a favorite recipe.

Here are some of my favorite tofu recipes:

Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu

Sweet & Sour Honey Lemon Tofu

Pumpkin Honey Tofu. This turns out like spongy pumpkin “bread”. Very soft, chewy, and pliable infused with pumpkin flavor.

Green Tea & Honey Ginger Tofu

Mango Ginger Maple Tofu

Salsa Verde Pepperjack Tofu (Microwave & Vegan) Use soy-based cheese along with the tofu

 I shared my Tofu Preparation & Cooking Tips in this post from baking to broiling, freezing to pressing.

Comment below to enter the Tofu Xpress giveaway!


  1. Aw wish us Canadian folks could enter! Wonderful giveaway again :)

  2. I *need* one of these so badly – your broiled tofu recipe is my favorite!

  3. I really think I could use one of those suckers. I used to do a ghetto set up with bricks but then started the dry-searing method. And that works, but sometimes it doesn’t work as well as the pressing does. I don’t have a favorite way to make or use tofu – just know I like it super firm and maybe a little caramelized.

  4. I would love a tofu press. Among other ways, I eat miso soup with tofu weekly!

  5. I’ve been wanting a tofu press for ages, I don’t know why they’re so expensive! I’ve made your mango ginger maple tofu a bunch of times, so easy and tasty on top of a salad or rice!

  6. I follow in pinterest and will head over to pin right now ;-)

  7. I make a chocolate mousse using tofu and it is delish! I also add crumbled tofu to my egg scrambles.

  8. I struggle making it and would really like to try this to get a good sear on it.

  9. I tweeted your giveaway :)

  10. I make tofu stir frys once a week so that press would definitely come in handy!

  11. My favorite way to eat tofu is to just broil it for 10 minutes! Makes it crispy and firm.
    (you should see my current tofu “press” – it’s a stack of cookbooks on top of a cutting board. this would be an amazing upgrade!)

  12. ahhh the first thing i would do is make this lemongrass tofu…it’s an idea i’ve had for forever but had no tofu press to put it into action!

  13. I love putting tofu in stir frys and quesadillas. And I love to make lemon cream with blackberries with tofu. ( A tofu press would help so much!

  14. I put tofu chunks on my lunch salad or in a stir-fry with mixed veggies and rice for a delicious, protein-packed meal! A tofu press would be so helpful in meal prep =)

  15. I would love a tofu press. I have wanted them for a while. I eat tofu primarily in soups and use it weekly.

  16. I NEED that thing! I would love it. Unlike you, i actually LOVE raw uncooked tofu. I prefer it! Love the flavor. I like to stir it into a pumpkin curry (5 minute meal). Dee-lish!

  17. The best tofu I’ve ever eaten was prepared using your mango ginger maple tofu recipe. It is delicious!

  18. Just started experimenting with tofu but NEED a press! My favorite would have to be this tofu pie (not very healthy, but protein with dessert is better than none at all!)

  19. I Facebook liked you a while ago :)

  20. My usual tofu dish is lovingly known as slimy, greasy, baked tofu. It is a very simple recipe which involves cutting a pound of tofu into 8 slices then marinating for 15 minutes (while oven heats) in tamari. The tofu is then dusted with nutritional yeast on both sides and olive oil is drizzled on top along with a healthy measure of lemon juice. The tofu is baked for 25 minutes on each side in a 410F oven.

  21. General Tso’s tofu

  22. I love to season firm tofu with Bragg Liquid Aminos.

  23. I have to press my tofu really well in order to love it (I can’t handle the mush factor). Right now, I’m putting my old Biochem books to great use;) I love bbq tofu wraps with coleslaw!

  24. I love using tofu in stir fry!

  25. I love to have tofu in a lot of things like curry, veg & tofu stir fry, etc… but sometimes I just want a silk tofu with soysauce, finely chopped green onions and little bit of minced ginger on top! Japanese way to eat it :)

  26. commented on twitter :)

  27. I’m a big fan of baked tofu (I top it with whatever spice I want on a particular day); then I pack it and nibble away during my busy day. I have a feeling that a tofu press would make it so much yummier!

  28. I like to press, marinate, and grill my tofu. I love trying out different marinades! Your pumpkin honey tofu sounds amazing!

  29. And also follow you on Pinterest!

  30. I love tofu and would love to win a tofu press! One of my favorite ways to prepare tofu is roasting it crispy with BBQ sauce:

  31. My favorite way to make tofu is in pad thai. My favorite pad thai recipe comes from Skinny Bitch in the Kitch. It’s amazing! So are a lot of other recipes in that book if you’re interested.

  32. I FB like you

  33. Love love love tofu! Especially with peanut sauce or grilled in a sandwich!

    I’m also a huge fan of tempeh in tacos or marinara — so good!!

  37. i love simple grilled tofu w/ veggies!

  38. I LOVE making tofu! I am a fan of dry-frying and baking. BBQ tofu just can’t be beat!

  39. I like to freeze tofu, thaw it in the fridge, get the water out (need help w this!!) and then cover in a miso + tahini + soy sauce + agave + grated ginger + apple cider vinegar blend….cook in a little olive oil…delicious!

  40. A tofu press would be amazing, I love just having a classic tofu scramble with lots of veggies and italian seasonings.

  41. My favorite is tofu salad. I freeze and defrost a block of tofu, then squeeze out the water and crumble it. I add chopped celery and apple. I then add a mixture of Vegenaise, tamari, lemon juice, and kelp powder. It make s great sandwich.

  42. I liked you on Facebook!

  43. I love tofu in my veggie stir frys.. I’m pretty sure i’m the only person ever to like tofu in it’s simple form! ;-)
