    Anne Sainz's Note:

    This was inspired by a recipe from Jeanne Lemlin's "Vegetarian Pleasures." I made some changes to it so it is simpler to make and is more in keeping with a Nutritarian eating style. This recipe takes a little more prep time than some of my other recipes but the end result is worth it. Pressing tofu: Cut it into 1/2 inch slices. Lay the slices out on a clean kitchen towel that has been folded in half or a couple of layers of paper towel. Fold the kitchen towel over the tofu slices or place additional paper towels on top. Cover with a small cutting board and place 6 to 8 cans on top to weight it down. Let tofu sit at least 30 minutes before cutting it into 1/2 inch cubes.
