I am completely in love with a certain inanimate object.
As odd as that is to say, it is the complete truth.
No, it is NOT a item I picked up from a ADULT XXX store.
TOFU XPRESS I LOVE YOU IN WAYS A HUMAN SHOULD NOT LOVE PLASTIC!!
LOOK WHAT IT DID!!!!!!!!!!! I was overly fascinated by it when I first received it. Granted, I have had the press for a few months and it has by far been my most used kitchen item….minus my junky blender.
Above are the fixin’s for the soup that I made last night, but that will have to wait for another post.
Okay, so onto my review of this miracle machinery….
As far as I am concerned, the TofuXpress si something that every vegan/vegetarian/tofu lover should own. I have spent many years doing the ole pans and towel trick and that produced NOTHING compared to this. The inventor definitely had the right idea in mind when she invented this thing. Can we give her some sort of award for MOST AMAZING ADDITION TO A VEG KITCHEN?
The only downfall I see is when it comes to marinading the tofu with the press part attached. Pressing the flavor into the tofu didn’t really work out well for me, not to mention the insane mess i had to clean up after. I’m a stickler for oil. If there is a oily residue on any of my dishes, I freak and scrub until the dishes squeak. The fella calls me crazy. After using the tofu marinade from Veganomicon (which has quickly become my favorite of all time), I realized that the press was not idea for me to use for marinading.
This post is way too erratic and sounds like i have my lips pressed firmly on the companies ass. Not true. I’m just in love with it and a post was LONG over due. I was only inspired to post it now because I used it last night for a soup/stew and since i had pressed the tofu, as soon as I added it into my pot it sucked the liquid right up. This made the tofu achieve perfection status.
And as I said, the soup post will be later.
