EZ Tofu Press (Wow, DO I EVER Want one)

Pressing really does make such a great difference in tofu’s texture and ability to absorb flavours (Dear spell check, that’s how we spell it here in Canada, relax, have a cookie). Pressing and freezing both really help to make it have a more “meaty” texture, which is really nice for some dishes.

This is such a great and simple little gadget, and at such a reasonable price. I tend to press my tofu with a crazy and precarious group of plates, a big rock and a drain board – this would make things so much more simple.

Many people are anti-soy, I’m not one of them. I find that my body processes it very well, and I tend to feel really balanced when I include it in my meals a couple of times a week. I am very careful to only buy the organic, non-gmo varieties however.

The ad is pretty cheesy, and I’m pretty sure I can make one of these on my own, but I sure do love the idea.

About couleewind

I'm a 41 year old woman from a small city in Alberta Canada. I am whimsical and bitter-sweet and am essentially a marshmallow in a porcupine suit. I collect Pez dispensers and books and I love to talk, although I do tend to be fairly introspective. The sort of content which you will find here will vary depending on the day, my mood and what’s going on in my world or of interest to me. I mainly blog as method of reflecting on my day and on my life at the time of the post. I have a history of struggling with social anxiety and depression, as well as type two diabetes, and through living a plant-based, wholistically centered life I've made great strides in these areas. This blog is meant to reflect where I'm at in my life, and how I'm moving toward creating the life I see myself having in my dreams. I will often discuss, whole foods, meditation, personal growth and my day to day struggles and victories. I am also a highschool drop out who is returning to school at age 42, and a person who lives on a very tight fixed income currently, this will also be reflected in my blog.
