Inaugural Use

For a while now Josh and I have been doing our best to squeeze out the water from our tofu before cooking. We have come up with many unique and interesting techniques like this one, and this one. But no matter how hard we tried, we could not come up with a good way to drain the tofu...until now.

For Hanukah, Josh's sister gave us a tofu press! It was like a dream come true. We were so excited to break into it. Last night we FINALLY made some tofu. And the press was awesome!! It worked great and it made the tofu taste even better than usual.

The amazing machine

Just out of the package

Placing the top on

After only a few minutes

Time lapse, 1 hour (just enough time to get a run in)

Check out how much smaller that tofu is

Of course we had some stir-fry too

Not a bad meal at all

Thank you Jana! We are obsessed with love our new tofu press!
