1. Remove tofu from packaging and cut block in half, lengthwise.
2. Wrap each half block in a clean kitchen towel.
3. Place the wrapped half blocks on a cutting board or plate. Place another cutting board or plate on top of the wrapped half blocks. Place several large books on top of the top plate to weigh it down and apply slight pressure to the blocks to effectively press out the excess moisture.
4. Allow to stand for 20-30 minutes. To remove even more moisture, re-wrap in fresh towels and press for another 15-20 minutes.
That's it! Your tofu is now ready for use in your favorite tofu recipe, like the grilled tofu veggie kabobs I'll be sharing next week! ;)
