    I'm afraid I make my own, and press it with a really heavy chopping board for well over an hour when I've first made it. Comes out as extra firm. It is shockingly easy.

    I use this recipe:

    https://www.messyvegancook.com/homemade-tofu-a-tutorial/

    I use Alpro unsweetened wholebean milk and come in at the bit headed "Keep it Warm Buddy". And when she says warm, she means pretty close to boiling but not boiling or bubbling. I had no idea it was so amazingly easy to make! Heat the milk, whack in the nigari in a very little hot water, cover pot, take off the heat and walk away. Come back, strain tofu, pop into press and add weights. Walk away for 75 minutes. COme back and put tofu into storage container in fridge. And that's it!

    I use the nigari I get from Ebay. I tried some from the Tofu Box on Amazon but for three attempts it didn't work at all and then I bought the new stuff. Distinct difference in smell - as in the stuff from the Tofu Box didn't have one....

    I'll try this! It occurs to me that it's such a gorgeous coating it would work with just about anything.

    I am making seitan nuggets and steaks at the weekend. I might make extra nuggets and coat a few. They'd be good. I usually add a marinade to seitan, but a coating would work equally as well.

    I never considered making my own tofu. But I think I’ll have a go - thanks for the link.

    Hi @WuTwo , hope things are somewhat alright with you and your family.
    I thought of you this afternoon when I decided to use this recipe for broccoli (to use in a vegetable stew). It tasted wonderful! I baked for about 30 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
