Microwave Drying Tofu

Preparation

1
Place the tofu on a microwave-proof plate and heat without wrap for 3 to 4 minutes per block. Line a calendar with paper towels or coffee filter. Place heated tofu on top and let stand for about 10 minutes. Then marinate. Prep is about 15 minutes max.

I wouldn't call tofu a fast convenience food. Well, it is if we just want to drain it and add it to soup or salad. Most of the time I want it flavored. So it needs to be pressed. That takes about 2 hours in the refrigerator. Tofu isn't harmed by longer stand times if wrapped in cloth - like a tea towel.

Tofu can be worked into a weekday schedule if we drain over night, marinade all day. Even tho i don't work now, it's still convenient to do it this way. Unless i set alarms clocks.

I like the microwave method. 15 minutes! no weight. marinade or not. great!
