Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Tofu is sold in blocks or cakes in three textures: soft, firm and extra-firm. Look for it in sealed packages in the refrigerator section of the supermarket.
  • tip 2
    To reheat leftover rice and restore its fluffy tenderness, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons water and heat in a covered saucepan.
