Simple Home-style tofu, and how to remove tofu from the box

Earlier I have problem to remove a perfect tofu from the box. After I learnt a new way, I am glad to see the tofu perfectly removed from the box for every attempted.

How to remove tofu perfectly from the box?
1. use a pair of scissor to trim off the edges of the tofu box, remove the plastic paper.
2. open the wall of the box and let tap water running through the gap, repeat the same step for each side, until you feel the tofu is floating on the water.

3. Place the tofu with a plate, then flip it over.

4. remove the box, and you see a perfect tofu..
Thanks to food4tots for sharing this useful tip !!

Now the tofu is ready to cook, here is the simple steamed tofu that I like to cook..
