We previously created a guide on best tofu press but we now have a step by guide on how to press tofu. This can come in handy for those of you who prefer to save a little money, or just those that realize how simple it is to press your own tofu at home.
Remove tofu from its package and drain the liquid.
Cut a block of tofu into two smaller pieces to make it easier to work with.
Place a piece of paper on a dry plate and add tofu.
Cover tofu with some more paper. Place a cutting board on top to cover the tofu.
Press tofu with some books or other heavy objects for about an hour to squeeze the liquid.
When done, remove the books and kitchen paper.
Optionally, cut tofu into cubes and use immediately or freeze for later.
