How Do I Prepare Tofu?

Tofu can be watery and you’ll need a few things to prepare so you get the best out of your meal:
1. Use a paper towel to blot off the excess water from tofu – sometimes I like to wrap a brick of tofu up in the paper towel and walk away for an hour (if you have time)
2. Since tofu is like a sponge, it absorbs moisture easily – and this means you’ll have to spend a little time prepping and not skipping this part.

What Ingredients Do I Need?

Besides extra firm tofu, here’s your grocery list:

  • tamari
  • cornstarch
  • maple syrup
  • cannabis oil
