Enter to win a tofu press from Tofuture. Revolutionise the way you enjoy tofu!
Tofuture have kindly supplied one of their fantastic tofu presses for one of my lucky readers!
Anyone who loves tofu knows this scene well: a precarious leaning tower of plate/tea towel/tofu/tea towel/plate/anything heavy (usually tins of chickpeas for me!).
If you don’t cook with tofu often, then I’m sure this all sounds a bit strange. Tofu comes packed in water, but it needs to be pressed out. That way, it absorbs all of the lovely flavours you marinate it in and it gets a much nicer texture.
If you’ve ever found tofu to be a bit bland or ‘meh’, then that’s probably because it hasn’t been pressed. If you don’t press your tofu, it will be a soggy bland mess. But press it and it is an absolute delight.
The Tofutre Tofu Press means you can avoid the leaning tower of tofu. It’s simple and really easy to use. It works by removing water from the tofu by pressing it gradually, giving it a more pleasant firm texture and consistency. Pressing tofu is vital to allow it to absorb marinades or any flavour of the dish. Plus it can also be used to make your own tofu.
I just put the tofu into the green inner tray, pop down the latches and stick it in the fridge. The water all drains into the bottom reservoir and it needs to be in the fridge for anything from 15 minutes to overnight (as I tend to do). Then, you just need to marinate it in whatever flavour you wish (you can do it in the tofu press) for a little while and then cook it. Plus the tofu press can then be put into the dishwasher.
Here are some ideas for tofu recipes using a tofu press:
Tofu Noodle Broth
Tofush and Chips (Vegan Fish and Chips)
Spiced Tofu Fingers
Baked Tamari and Maple Tofu with Rice Noodles
Caribbean Tofu with Coconut Quinoa
“We set up Tofuture with the aim of promoting tofu to be a more generally acceptable alternative to meat. We believe that tofu can be delicious if prepared correctly and want to spread the word that to make it work you have to press it first.” – Susanna, Tofuture
