TIP: Storing tofu

When you buy a pack of tofu, and only use a quarter or half of it, you want to store the tofu back into the fridge in the best condition possible. Then you will be able to use it later in the week without wasting it.

All you need is a tupperware that's big enough or at least 3/4 of a regular pack of tofu. If you don't have it, I highly suggest you invest in one if you think you will be using tofu fairly often.

After cutting off the portion of tofu you are using for today's cooking, take the rest of the block and place it in the tupperware.

Then pour water into the tupperware until the block of tofu is covered entirely by water, similar to how it came in the original package. If you live in an area that has bad smelling tap water, use filtered water instead.

Put the tupperware cover on, and place it back in the fridge.

I usually keep it like this in the fridge for a week or so, and it still tastes fresh. Just make sure you use it before the original expiration date. If you think you might forget when that is, write it on the post it note, and stick it on top of the tupperware.

I think it is always important to store food in a good container! I have some tupperware containers because they preserve food really fresh.
