TofuXpress Tofu Press 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.

  1. I am instagram following you :)

  2. Just plain tofu plus a little soy sauce or Chinese vegetarian oyster sauce :] (i think it’s oyster sauce…or was it mushroom..xD)
    Or adding half a tofu into smoothies if I run out of soymilk

  3. A tofu press would be great as right now I put tofu between two plates and weigh it
    down with a stack of books! I typically will either back it or cook on my grill pan with
    either a brush of real maple syrup and black pepper or will use a peanut marinade.
    I’ve been wanting to try your honey pumpkin recipe as I have Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter.

    Thanks!

  15. I like your site on Facebook.

  16. I love to stir-fry my tofu with some veggies and soy sauce. Served with brown rice, it makes a great meal.

  17. Too funny. Just this week I decided to do tofu for lunch. I’m super lazy when it comes to cooking. I always bring my lunch to work, and it always involves a bit of preparation, but I keep it quick. I got some firm tofu from Trader Joe’s and made a tofu salad for sandwiches. I split my tofu block in 3 servings. To prepare my tofu salad, I crumbled one serving with a fork, then I added a big squirt of spicy deli mustard, 2 big spoons full of pickle relish, a dash of paprika, salt, and pepper. My sandwich consisted of whole wheat bread and spinach. Super good. Super easy. Super versatile. You can add celery, onions, different spices, whatever. Best lunch ever. Makes a great dip for carrots and veggies too.

  18. I love tofu fried rice. Mostly because the tofu doesnt need to be pressed. I press mine between two cookbooks with my tofu wrapped in kitchen towels. A press would be awesome!

  19. i haven’t quite mastered the whole tofu thing yet… maybe its because i dont have a press! :)

  20. I love making a tofu stir fry with onions, lima beans, veggies, soy sauce, and sesame oil!
