      Place the tofu in a shallow bowl and put a small plate directly on top of the tofu. Put something heavy, like a can of soup on the plate and leave for 20 minutes. Drain away excess water and chop the tofu into cubes. Return cubes to the bowl and toss with the soy sauce, leaving to marinade for 20 minutes, turning occasionally.
