How does that title grab ya?
Recently, I finally broke down and bought a tofu press, more specifically, the EZ Tofu Press. What in the hell took me so long to buy a tofu press?
I entitled this post “tofu torture” because the tofu press looks like a torture device for tofu!
I put the tofu and the press on a plate to catch the liquid drained off the tofu. So much liquid!
Like most folks who use a lot of tofu in their cooking (well those without tofu presses) I have done the whole “wrap the tofu in towels and balance an entire library on top of it” to get the tofu properly drained. Never again!
Here’s the fried tofu I made with the pressed tofu:
This is my stand-by fried tofu recipe: thinly sliced tofu fried until crispy and seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Earlier in the week, I also made refried bean enchiladas, but since I don’t really do anything special when I make them, I am not going to put up a recipe. I use all store bought ingredients and the only thing that’s from scratch is the seasoning mixture I sprinkle in and on top of the enchiladas, which is just garlic powder and chili powder. I do always shred my own cheese though.
This weekend is going to be a busy one. I have a massage lined up to take care of some sore back muscles and then I am off to an art opening, followed by a fancy dress cocktail party. Tomorrow the majority of the USA will be watching the Super Bowl, but I will be meeting up with my ladies’ potluck group. That’s more my speed any day!
Have a great weekend!
