Cooking the Tofu
If you can’t fin liquid aminos you can use low sodium soy sauce, just taste it before adding the tofu to ensure it’s not too salty. You can also sub coconut aminos.
Here’s the best way to press tofu. Wrap the tofu in some paper towel, then with a kitchen towel around that. That way the kitchen towel is much easier to wash and doesn’t have pieces of tofu in it. Wrap it like a blanket around a baby. Put a heavy pan on top, like a cast iron skillet. Then put two books in or on top of that. Balance it so it doesn’t fall off, and leave It to be pressed for about 30 minutes. The tofu should be smaller, and the kitchen towel should be wet with the water from the tofu. Now you can proceed and use this. This makes tofu absorb flavours so much better, and gives it an amazing texture too.
