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.

    Our favorite way to use tofu is in a tofu scramble. One of my 8 yr olds favorite breakfasts!

    I love my tofu pan-fried with a little bit of olive oil and then dipped in my marinade. Best marinade EVER: Braggs Liquid Aminos, ginger, garlic powder, honey, and sesame oil. OMG. I could drink it!!! And I HATE pressing tofu!!!! I’ve been using a collander and a heavy plate…pain in the butt!!!

    We love our tofu press. It makes tofu soooo much better – dense, chewy, almost like the tofu you get at Asian restaurants. My favorite tofu is a baked, marinated dish – mix oil, soy sauce, nutritional yeast, garlic (optional), hot sauce (optional); coat pressed tofu with the marinade, and bake until crispy and browned. YUM.

    my favorite way to enjoy tofu is baking it after marinating it with eggplant and mushrooms in tamari, ginger, garlic, and cumin.

    I love making a chocolate mousse using silken tofu. It’s so sinful, yet so good for you as well. Plus, my 4 yo daughter thinks it’s an awesome pudding treat!

    I usually find a way to incorporate at least one block of extra firm tofu into my weekly meals. It would be nice to waste less paper towels on the pressing process!

  27. #
    Fritzi — April 12, 2012 at 11:59 am

    I usually put a cast iron pan on top to the tofu with a canned item on top of it. This sounds so much easier.

    Maggie — April 12, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    Pressed tofu is the way to go, for sure! I like mine dredged through a spice mixture and then blacked slightly. Yum.

    I like stir fried tofu with whatever veggies I have to add.

    I’d love to win the tofu press, all I do right now is weigh a cutting board with some dictionaries and I agree, mopping up the water is a pain. I keep a bag of edamame in my freezer, and whenever I make a quinoa bowl and am just throwing veggies in, I usually throw some in to amp up the protein.

    This one’s a toss up…love mine blackened (seasoned and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside…yum) but also dig it scrambled up “Cuban” style with black beans, brown rice, plantains, and sweet potatoes!

    Kilee — April 12, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    I never liked tofu until I tried making your mango ginger recipe. That one changed my mind! I would love to win the Tofu Express because I loath using dishtowels and paper towels to get it dry.

    Pressed tofu does cook and taste much better! Unfortunately they are generally very expensive. I use the EZ Tofu Press found on Amazon, its alot lower in price.

    John — April 17, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    Maybe that explains why I find tofu so distasteful — I don’t press it ahead!
