Vegan Tool Review

The Big SQUEEZE - TofuXpress

TofuXpress
The TofuXpress

Marie Kraft, TofuXpress DeveloperMarie Kraft developed an inventive kitchen gadget she named, the TofuXpress for those of us that want dense pressed tofu for vegan recipes. The TofuXpress eliminates the need for soggy cloth or paper towels and towering weights via pots, pans and canned items. This clever gadget simply makes vegan tofu prep easier, faster and saves space.

Packaged firm tofu may be purchased, but once you have pressed your first square of fresh tofu, you will taste and feel the difference in any recipe. Smoother and creamery are my first thoughts about the texture of tofu pressed in the TofuXpress. It makes my Mocking Egg Salad recipe even better! Experiment with different types of fresh tofu, note the time and type so that you can duplicate the texture variations. Soft or regular tofu vs firm tofu will give you different pressed versions. These experiments will be very entertaining... especially for children to observe.

HINT: If you have a large family, you may want to consider purchasing two units so that you can press two packages of tofu at the same time.

Trader Joe's and Costco have the best prices for boxed fresh tofu. If you have a local manufacturer in your city, try buying directly for an even better taste.

It's easy to press the spring down and twist the handle right into the slots on each side of the TofuXpress.

Marinade Made Easy

Basic squeezed tofu is simply bland. It needs flavoring, so the TofuXpress is equipped with a separate plastic lid that is attached to the bottom of the unit. Once the tofu has been pressed, remove the square and slice into your desired shapes.

Place the sliced tofu back into the TofuXpress and pour your favorite marinade over the top and pop the plastic lid off the bottom and snap it onto the top. Refrigerate for the desired marinate time and then cook to perfection.

So simple, so easy to clean-up, so space saving, so ingenious! My only question, "Why didn't I think of this!"

The Squeeze on Frozen Chopped Spinach

Another reason for having two TofuXpress units is frozen spinach! When creating manicotti or lasagna, I want tofu and squeezed defrosted chopped spinach. With two TofuXpress units, I can press a package of tofu and a box of defrosted spinach at the same time.

I am confident that you will find many other uses for the TofuXpress once you have used the unit.
