How to prepare Tofu with the perfect texture!

Prep Time3 hrsCook Time45 minsTotal Time3 hrs 45 mins
 1 Block Extra Firm Tofu
1

Slice Tofu block into 8 slices, set on parchment lined sheet pan and freeze solid.

TIP: We always keep one set of frozen tofu ready to go in our freezer for a quick meal.

2

Place sheet pan with frozen Tofu into cold oven and set to Pre-Heat to 350 degrees. When the oven gets to temperature, leave it in for an additional 10 minutes.

3

Take the pan out and let the Tofu cool enough to be touched. Then, take four slices at a time and squeeze them together between your hands, draining as much water out as possible. The goal is to get all of the moisture out without breaking the Tofu.

4

Put the squeezed Tofu back onto the pan and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes. Most of the moisture should cook off, but it should not be completely dry like a cracker.

5

Cut each slice into 8 cubes.

6

Marinate it in your favorite sauce or marinade for a great meat replacement! We will be using this technique in many future blogs, so come back and find a tofu meal to try!
