Notes

*Press tofu to release excess water. I use this tofu press and it works great! If you don’t have a tofu press you can wrap the tofu brick in paper towels, place between two plates and put something heavy on top to press down on the tofu. You will probably have to change the paper towels a 2-3 times to get out all of the water.
