Back in November, the fine folks with Tofu X-Press sent me one of their fancy tofu torture devices to review for Vegan MoFo, which was awesome of them and I was very excited to try it out! But then I moved 1,400 miles away and the Tofu X-Press sat in a box until earlier this week, when I finally busted it out for some tofu squeezin'!
This spring-loaded contraption gradually squeezes the water out of the tofu. One hour is enough time, but the tofu can stay in the X-Press as long as overnight, which is exactly what I did.
This felt kind of like a fun, elementary school science project. I was pretty excited to see the results in the morning!
Now, I pulled the contraption out of the fridge around 7am, and I was kind of rushed/impatient, so the Tofu X-Press is a little foggy in the pictures. Here are the better of the shots.
Impressive, right? The best part of this process is that it involves NO PAPER TOWELS. The Tofu X-Press is quite friendly to the environment.
The only tricky part, for me, was getting the lid off post-squeezin'. Luckily, my roommate was home and she was able to pop it off for me. I guess I just have weak hands, I don't know. Hopefully I'll either get the hang of it, or the lid will just come off easier in time.
I used the squeezed tofu to make a super-fast Tofu Scramble. There are no pictures of it, as it was 7am and I was already quite impressed that I remembered to take pictures of the Tofu X-Press in the first place, but it's not like you've never seen my tofu scrambles before.
I'm already looking forward to using the Tofu X-Press more in the future, so you can look forward to more reviews!
Do you have a Tofu X-Press? Do you totally love it?
