I have a recipe that requires you to dry out the tofu a bit in the oven before you add it to a soup. I was wondering if anyone here has tried to dry tofu in a dehydrator. I'm thinking that it might be a wonderful way to have something quick to add to soups and the like. Or a basis for a chip beef like dish?

Haven't dried it out myself but I used to purchase dried tofu for backpacking trips and to keep around the house for emergencies.<br><br><br><br>

I've seen other people on these boards say that rather than pressing it they dry tofu in an oven. That seems like a waste of energy to me. Why not just press it?

I've dried it on the dehydrate setting in my oven. It shrunk significantly and made tofu that was quite chewy and didn't fall apart no matter how small I julienned it.
