 Ingredients List

  • 5 lb Medium firm tofu
  • 1/2 c Sesame oil (no substitutes)
  • 1/4 c Tamari


Mash tofu well. (For optimal results, blend a firm Chinese style tofu with
a smaller portin of Japanese style, such as Mori-Nu Firm.) Line an 11"
colander with a single layer of moistened cheesecloth. Transfer tofu to
colander. Press tofu to flatten, and fold edges of cheesecloth over it.
Place a cake tin or other flat object over the surface of the tofu and
weigh it down with a heavy object (about 5 lbs) to press the liquid from
the tofu.

After the tofu has drained for 1 hour, hollow out to within 1 inch of the
colander. Fill the cavity with your favorite stuffing. Pack in stuffing and
cover with the remaining tofu. Pat down so surface is flat and firm. Oil a
roast or turkey pan, place pan over colander, and flip over so that flat
surface of filled tofu faces down. Remove cheesecloth.

Mix sesame oil and soy sauce to use as a basting liquid. Baste tofu with
liquid. Bake covered at 400 deg. F for 1 hour. Remove cover, baste, and
return to oven to bake uncovered until top becomes golden brown, about one
hour more. Baste again at least once during remaining cooking time.
