I was thrilled to try out the TofuXpress. I'm sure some of you may already be familiar with this fabulous device, maybe from other blogs. It makes me smile when I get to try out a new product that I believe my readers would enjoy. The TofuXpress was no exception.
The Tofuxpress has proven to be a real time saver in the kitchen, especially when I prepare tofu. (Anything I can do to save time in the kitchen scores big with me). I remember back in the day when I would have to load up the paper towels (I know, not environmentally friendly) and put the tofu in between plates to push out the excess water. Oh, those days are over now that I've discovered this nifty kitchen gadget.

So, I had to try out the goodness of this gadget upon receiving. Unfortunately, the pictures are not the best as I was not impressed with the tofu I had to work with. It was an extra firm tofu, but not as firm and easy to work with as Nasoya or a similar brand. So, pics of the finished product do not exist. I've recently received a coupon for Nasoya brand and will be getting more tofu soon (oh, how love coupons)...so, I will post again with better tofu pictures soon. This post will at least give you some visuals of how it all works. ;-)
But until then...on to exploring new kitchen friend..

Now, we don't eat copious amounts of tofu at my house, but when we do eat it it is nice to have a tool that will cut the prep time down, as well as make the finished product much better tasting. It truly makes sauteing, frying, or baking that much better. The flavors of the tofu seem to pop quite a bit more, which is a plus!!
I was very pleased with how the TofuXpress easily squeezed out all of the excess water from the tofu! I highly recommend this product. I am looking forward to getting some more tofu and experimenting some more with my new friend. ;-) Now...if it would only do dishes, too. ;-)
Have you ever tried a TofuXpress? Do you eat tofu? If yes, what is your favorite way to prepare it? Any yummy recipes you'd like to share?
Have a wonderfully blessed day! Smile lots!
