Recipe Tips

- To press tofu, line plate with a few layers of paper towels. Place tofu on top and cover with another layer of paper towel. Top with another plate and medium-weight item, such as a can. Press down to remove water from tofu. For best results, press at least 30 minutes or overnight in refrigerator.

- Mirin is a condiment made from rice, often found in Japanese recipes. It adds sweetness and flavor. Mirin can be found in the Asian or gourmet section of large supermarkets as well as Asian markets.
