Cooking Basics

Tofu - draining

Wrap tofu in paper towel and set aside for 15 to 20 minutes. This method works best if the tofu is cut into the desired sized pieces beforehand to remove excess moisture.  
Or wrap tofu in paper towel, place on a tray or other suitable surface and place a weight of 500~1000 g (17.7~35.3 oz.) on top and set aside for about appropriate minutes to release as much moisture as possible.

Okra - removing fuzz

Cover the okra lightly in salt and rub all over gently to remove the fuzz. This will make the color more vivid and soften the texture as well.
