Step 1: You will need 1 package of medium to firm tofu ("soft" tends to fall apart).
- Be sure to check the expiry date. Tofu does expire - you'll know it's gone bad if there's a smell. Fresh tofu has virtually no smell.
- Look for tofu that contains calcium for added health benefits.
- It's always a good idea to buy organic if at all possible, as soy bean crops are heavily treated with pesticides.
Storing Tip: Once opened, store any unused tofu in a covered container. Place tofu inside the container, then fill it with water (so that the water is covering the tofu). Cover tightly. Try to drain and replace the water on alternate days until eaten.
