Stewed, Simmered Tofu 37 recipes

Tofu is like a delicate sponge that can easily crumble if not handled properly, but readily soaks up the flavors of a broth or simmering sauce. Some caution is required, since if you simmer tofu for too long, the water in the tofu will drain out, resulting in a dry and crumbled mess. By pressing the water out before use, you can prevent some of this crumbling.
