two 16 ounce tubs extra-firm tofu

Lay two layers of paper towels on top of a double layer of dish towels and
have the same ready to go on top of the tofu.
Cut the tofu into 1 inch slabs and lay close together on the paper towels.
Cover with reserved layers of toweling.
Top with a cookie sheet and then place weight on top—
try canned goods, cast iron pans or a full tea kettle.
Press extra-firm tofu 20 minutes.
Remove weights, cookie sheet and top layers of toweling.
Cut slabs into desired size and shape right on top of the paper towels.

Extra Tip: Use the toweling to move cut tofu and pour into marinade bag.
