Greetings TofuXpress Family,

We hope you are enjoying your tofu press! This section of our website is here for you. You can browse through new ways to use your TofuXpress or share recipes you have created using pressed tofu.

The TofuXpress was created to make tofu more enjoyable and to help others incorporate more “Green Protein” into their diet. Pressing tofu allows for better flavor through more effective marination and it also changes its texture! We hope you see this tofu press as an opportunity to introduce tofu to your friends and family in new ways.

There are more reasons to “Eat Green Protein”. For example, we ran across an interesting statistic: “Growing soybeans doesn’t require nearly the amount of water that’s needed to raise animals.
A household that replaces one pound of beef with one pound of soy per month would conserve twenty thousand gallons of water per year. If just 20 percent of households in the Unites States and Canada substituted four ounces of beef for four ounces of soy per week the annual water savings would be enough to provide ten gallons of drinking water to ever person in the world.” The Green Book p. 71.

We believe that if people make just small changes to their diet big things can happen. Not only can you help yourself be healthier, you can also help the environment. We hope that these tofu recipes, along with the TofuXpress, can influence you to make small modifications for yourself, your loved ones, and the planet.

Want to do more? Help us to help others by sharing your favorite pressed tofu recipes with us today. Submit your recipes and photos of your creations to recipes@tofuxpress.com. Feel free to include a sentence or two on the story behind the development of your recipe and please indicate if you would like to have your first name and city mentioned as well.

Enjoy!
Marie Kraft,
