Tofu press the fit way! =)

For months I've been pressing my tofu with heavy cans until the other day it finally dawned on me! Why not use my dumbbells!!! =)
I didn't want to use more than the 5's, in order to not make the poor tofu completely flat *lol* but it worked great!
Just thought I'd put that idea out there in case you have a few DB's lying around as well and always look for the perfect weight to press your tofu! ;)

After the pressing was done (I go between 30 min to 2-3 hours, depending on how quickly I need/want the tofu to be available) I had a great lunch,
scrambled tofu the Mediterranean way with sun dried tomatoes and some black olives (the latter I just started eating recently! ;) ), some onion, garlic, turmeric and nutritional yeast, basta! =)
Together with some home made rye sourdough bread and fresh tomatoes it was amazing!!!

Speaking of trying olives... I'm not the only one! ^_^

I swear, this cat is semi the only cat that eats things like chickpeas, any other beans, brussel sprouts (!) and now olives!


  1. What a good idea!!! I will remember that for the future :)

    Ha ha, SO cute about kitty! He looks like he's about to have a blast pushing the olives around ;)

  2. LOL, who needs an expensive tofu press thing, right? ;) (Even though I'd still like one as it looks neat and one could use it as a container to marinade the tofu too...)

    I know, he definitely had fun fishing the olives out! =) Crazy cat!

  3. Nice lunch and great photos!
