We are #SoyInspired by his clever press and think you will be, too!
Ben Aron: I got tired of stacking cans as well as other heavy objects and then watching them thud to the wood floor in my kitchen, blocks of tofu are notorious for shifting when being pressed! So I proceeded to look at purchasing a tofu press, I had heard about them but was not aware they were sold. Looking online, a press was between $40 and $60.00; this was a little steep for my budget! After the sticker shock, I figured that I could make one better and for less; and that’s how it all started. Today I am the number one selling press on Amazon and have been for over 2 years.
BA: The interest and demand for the EZ Tofu Press has really been incredible. The large number of positive comments on Amazon reaffirms my dedication to making the best press for the price.
BA: I like to stir-fry tofu and mix with different vegetables and rice. Bok choy, string beans, asparagus, basmati and Jasmine rice, all complement tofu nicely. Tofu can be added to any diet by pressing and then crumbling or sliced and combined with any recipe. For example, it works well in chili, spaghetti sauce, stew, or soups. My daughter who usually doesn’t like tofu, will happily eat it when its crumbled in chili!
BA: Being a lazy cook, I like to purchase ready-made Hoisin, BBQ, and Soy sauces. Tofu is a blank palette so whatever flavors you like, use them to cook with. For example, if you like BBQ, there are many excellent BBQ sauces you can marinade with. After pressing with the EZ Tofu Press, slice the tofu and let it soak for 15 min to an hour or more and then cook. If your adventurous and like to make your own marinade, go for it!
