FAQs About Tofu

Until you're ready to use the tofu, you can store an unopened container of tofu in the refrigerator. Packaged tofu has a long expiration date when unopened, so check the best-before date on the package to make sure you're using it before it expires. 

Once you open the container, place any leftover tofu in a sealed container and cover it with water. Change out the water daily to keep the tofu fresh. After opening the package, you have about one week to use it before the tofu goes bad.

No, you don't need to cook tofu. You can eat it straight out of the package if you want. You can also use raw tofu in recipes such as dressings, sauces, or dairy substitutes. However, you'll most often find that tofu is prepared in a way to enhance its flavor, whether that involves cooking, baking, or adding it to a recipe.

Yes, you can freeze tofu for up to three months. Cut it into chunks, and freeze the tofu on a tray lined with parchment paper. Once it's solid, which should take 30 minutes to an hour, transfer the cubes into a freezer-safe container or bag. When you're ready to use the tofu, take the container or bag out of the freezer and place it in the refrigerator so it can thaw. You can also use the defrost setting in the microwave to thaw it. Keep in mind that freezing tofu does cause its texture to change slightly.
