Quick Tip: How to store leftover tofu

Keep leftover tofu fresh in the fridge

This one is probably something most of you already know, but it took me a while to figure out so I’ll assume there’s at least one or two people out there who might find it helpful. (Or I’m just really slow, but humor me here!)

If you cook with tofu there’s probably going to be times when you don’t use the whole block, and it gets all gross and hard if you just stick in back in the fridge. The secret is to keep it in water – just put your leftover tofu in a dish and add enough water to cover it. Cover the dish and it will now stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 or 4 days or so.

Told you it was obvious, but come on, there’s got to be at least one of you who used to think that if you didn’t use the whole block you were going to have to waste some tofu. Anyone? Anyone? ….Bueller?
