TofuXpress Tofu Press Giveaway

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

MY OTHER RECIPES

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.

  5. I have been thinking about getting a press – it would make our weekly tofu stir fry so much better!

  6. I definitely need one of these!! I’ve been a vegetarian for 2 years now, and i almost never make anything with tofu since pressing it is so messy!

  7. As a busy college student, this tofu press would be a great time saver!

  8. I have been wanting a tofu press for 2 years now! My favorite tofu recipe involves honey, lime, curry, and a bed of veggies. Yum!!

  12. favorite tofu recipe is Lemon Soy Marinade and grilled tofu!

  13. I enjoy drinking vanilla soy milk each morning with breakfast. I often use it to make my green smoothies. I also really enjoy tofu & black bean enchiladas.

  14. Wow, Aveire how cool is this!!!! I love the new blog and now look at this sweet tofu machine… i love it.

  15. Awesome give away! Oh my gosh.. this thing would not go a DAY without use in my house.

    I LOVE tofu broiled with peanut sauce, balsamic, or BBQ… but I also love it raw and mixed into salads, soups. I’m definitely going to experiment more this summer with grilling it. Also, shakes and smoothies are great with it too!

  16. I facebook like you

  17. I facebook like Soyfoods Association

  18. I remember seeing the press ages ago around the sphere, but couldn’t justify the cost. Would love to win! Def worth the cupboard space for me.

    I’m one of those weirdos that could eat tofu cold. Kinda funky. Def an aquired taste. If I have the time, I like to marinate my (thinly sliced) tofu in a blend of spices, hot sauce, soy sauce & honey. Bake @ 400 20 min, flip and 20 min more. I still need to try in on the bbq.

  19. I love tofu and the press rocks! Thank you!

  20. I love making chocolate tofu protein mousse! Silken tofu, cocoa powder, Arbonne protein shake mix(20 grams protein, 9grams sugar, and low carb!), almond milk. Simple! Vegan, gf!!

  21. I have been waiting to try tofu since I have been intimidated by the pressing process since I don’t have a press-and don’t really want to buy a press until I know I like tofu! I have always admired all of your tofu recipes and look forward to trying them. Mama Pea also has some great looking tofu recipes! Yum!

  22. I use soy milk in my smoothies for the added protein. I prefer the taste over dairy. And, being 99.9% vegetarian, I’ve just started incorporating tofu into my meals. This would be a fun addition!

  23. I love marinated baked tofu–and a press would definitely make the prep much easier! I also like silken tofu made into chocolate pudding

  24. I usually bake tofu after marinating in some kind of sauce.

  25. I love broiling tofu to make “tofu fingers”
