Once tofu is opened, it should be stored in water and the water should be changed every day. Eat within a week. You can freeze tofu to retain freshness and nutritive value. Freezing tofu can be beneficial if desiring a firmer cake. As it thaws, much of its water content separates.
You can achieve varying degrees of firmness by pressing the excess water from tofu. Simply cut tofu into quarters and place on a flat surface, slanting it slightly for the excess water to run off. Place a plate with 2-5 lb. of weight on tofu slices for 20 minutes to 1 hour. A well-pressed slice of tofu will be firm, allowing you the same versatility as a sirloin steak.
For dips, spreads, sauce puddings and pies, you can blend tofu into a white creamy texture. Slight blending will result in a cottage cheese-like texture. Tofu adapts to just about any flavor, making it an easy food to prepare. It can be boiled and served just as it is.
Marinating tofu is an excellent way of adding flavor and color. It takes on the flavors quickly and is best marinated in small cubes.
We are going to provide for you some excellent recipes to start you on the tofu path.
