Cube or slice tofu for Asian soups or stirfries. Steam with green onions, soy sauce and sesame oil for a quick appetizer or side dish. Purée and use in baking as a dairy or egg replacement.
Storage and Handling
Tofu is pasteurized without preservatives. As a perishable product, always refrigerate tofu and handle it as you would meat or dairy products. Good for 3 days after opening. An unopened package is good up to the stamped expiry date, if it hasn’t been subject to temperature abuse.
Store and refrigerate unused portions in clean water in the original container or transfer to a bowl and immerse in water. Change the water daily.
Always pat the tofu dry with a cloth before using, as it has a high moisture content.
When preparing a recipe that requires Medium Firm or Fresh tofu to be pressed, squeeze the tofu with a cheesecloth or drain in a colander for 10 minutes. You can also press the tofu by adding pressure to it so more water can be expelled. Simply place a plate on the tofu, and stack the plate with canned goods for more weight.
This classic can be frozen, along with other Asian Classic varieties and Extra Firm Tofu. The tofu will develop air pockets and become drier and more porous in texture. This texture makes the tofu chewier with a more meat like texture. Once frozen, the tofu is good for up to 3 months. The tofu will turn slightly yellow or beige in colour. Thaw tofu overnight in refrigerator or approximately 8 hours at room temperature. Squeeze out excess water before using.
