Tip 1: Be sure to have the tofu and all the vegetables prepared before you
begin Cooking.

Tip 2: To press firm tofu * Position a cutting board on the counter so that
it is slightly sloped. Place paper towel to trap any liquid that may run
off. * Cut the block of tofu into 1/2-inch slices and place between several
layers of clean kitchen towels or paper towels. Place a heavy chopping
board or pot filled with water on top of the towels and leave weight in
place for 15 to 45 minutes. Then carefully remove tofu from its wrapping
and proceed.
