  1. Step 1

    To begin making the dish, cut tofu into cubes or slices, roughly the size of cellphones. You can also steam it whole if you wish, and then cut it up later.
  2. Step 2

    If you're going to be using a microwave to prepare the dish, place the tofu on a safe plate and cover it loosely with a damp paper towel.
  3. Step 3

    If you will be using a steamer , steam the tofu on the stovetop for about 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Once you've finished steaming, serve the tofu with the dipping sauce of your choice. You can pour the sauce over the tofu or serve it on the side. If you're serving a few different people and aren't sure what their dipping sauce preferences are, serve the dipping sauce on the side. If you're not familiar with tofu dipping sauce and not sure which dipping sauce you'll prefer, consider serving a plethora of different dipping sauces so that you and your family or friends can sample a variety.
