The one I am pressing right now is firm. This is my first attempt at working with tofu.
Definitely, all tofu is not created equal! The tubs you may find in regular grocery stores give tofu a bad name. Kind of like white paste!
If you can find local made, you've got it made!
Actually white wave does a pretty good job, as does Trader Joe's with their firm blocks. Still not quite local made.
But tofu takes the taste of things around it - part of its charm! Freezing and squeezing it changes its texture and it really soaks up marinades like crazy.
Enjoy your tofu adventure! It is low fiber and high fat, however, so more in the condiment category that center of plate.
