Tofu is rich in protein and amazingly versatile. Firm tofu holds its shape well when cut or cooked and has a strong, slightly sour taste. Pressed tofu (often confusingly labelled as firm tofu) has much of the moisture extracted and is therefore much firmer in texture and excellent for stir-fries. Refrigerate fresh tofu immersed in water. Slices of deep-fried tofu (tau foo pok) are sold ready-made in supermarkets and wet markets, and may be sliced or cubed and added to stir-fried dishes and soups.
