FIT CHEF HOW-TO: PROPERLY PRESS TOFU

Removing the excess water from tofu is critical to achieving the desired consistency for scrambles, says Lauren Blake, RD, Columbus, Ohio-based founder of Whole Living Lauren. To do so, fold a dishcloth in half over a cutting board. Place tofu (the extra-firm kind is best) on top of the cloth and cover with another folded dishcloth. Add a bowl or another heavy object such as a cookbook on top of the tofu to weigh it down, and allow the tofu to sit for 30 minutes. Uncover and press dry with a cloth or paper towels.
