"Wicked" Spicy Thai Inspirations

Both these recipes came from the cook book, "Appetite for Reduction" by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Very spicy and full of flavor, yet low in fat, both these recipes will satisfy even the omnivores!
Unbeknownst, to me until I read this book, it is helpful to press your tofu prior to sautéing it. Remove the block of extra firm tofu from the container. Then wrap your tofu in a clean kitchen towel and place something heavy on the towel such as a small frying pan with a couple of cans in it. After a few minutes you will notice the that the towel becomes moist from soaking up the extra fluid and your tofu is more compact and dryer. Your tofu is now ready to be cut up into cubes or slices for your recipe.
