This sounds really good!
Perfect for me since I’m trying to eat less meat, thanks.
Mmm! Would love to try this. 😋
Have to admit ...used to press by hand my tofu ...getting a tofu press made all the difference in the world ..gets crispy and really absorbs the flavors you are pairing it with ...another fav for me to try
