Xpress to impress

My mom gave me this delightful gadget, the Tofu Xpress. It has a big spring that mushes the tofu into a little plastic square. It is totally amazing.

Look at all that tofu water oozing out. It says to press for an hour but I am impatient and after 20 minutes the tofu was totally better pressed than I have ever accomplished with a soggy-paper-towel-and-canned-goods tower. Of course it was also pretty flat. But that is a small price to pay.

After I overenthusiastically got started on pressing the tofu I realized that I didn’t have any marinading ingredients. So I mixed a bunch of junk together: apple cider vinegar, but then the creepy Mother started coming out, the Mother is so creepy, so just a little cider vinegar; fresh cider; white barley miso; a squirt of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos; some pressed garlic. I dipped the tofu slices in and put them on a piece of parchment, then poured the rest of the liquid over, and baked them until they started to brown.

MMmm it was so good I would make it again and again.

No pictures of breakfast because I’ve been eating toasted raisin pecan bread that I bought at Ithaca Bakery.

    What a bad blogging partner I am, I got one of those a while ago (Bryan’s mom ordered it for xmas and it came in August) and forgot to tell you how cool it was. But look, you found out without my helpful advice. Good work, Heather’s mom!

    I would’ve been too cheap to buy it myself anyway. But now that I have experienced it, it is absolutely worth the money to never touch a tofu-liquid-soaked paper towel ever again.
