Believe it or not but tofu is actually one of my favorite things to eat. I know a lot of people think it’s “flavorless” and boring. But that’s the great thing about tofu: it pretty much takes up the flavor of whatever you put on it. So really, it’s not boring at all, it’s got MANY possibilities.
The first step in this recipe is the most important step. Making sure you drain as much water out of your tofu as possible is critical to ensuring it keeps its flavor. Otherwise, whatever you put on it will be diluted by the excess water. You’ll have to put the tofu block on top of several paper towels (3-4) and then cover with an additional layer of paper towels. Place something heavy on top such as a cast iron skillet or some heavy canned goods. Let it sit like this for about 30 minutes to ensure lots of water is soaked up by the paper towels.
