Tips & Notes
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
Ingredient Note: We prefer water-packed tofu from the refrigerated section of the supermarket. Crumbling it into uneven pieces creates more surface area, improving the texture and avoiding the blocky look that turns many people away.
