How to Press Tofu
Place another layer of folded paper towels or a clean kitchen cloth top of the tofu. Then, place the bowl or another cutting board on top of the towels. Next, place the weight on top. Your weight should be heavy enough to press down evenly across the top of the tofu, but not so heavy that the tofu crumbles. A large can of beans or soup is perfect. Let the tofu sit for at least 15 minutes.
