Tofu Instead of Ricotta

Watchers' "Versatile Vegetarian" (I think that's the name) cookbook.

First, freeze the tofu (I removed it from the carton first and put it in

Then, thaw it and drain the liquid.  Next, place it on a plate, covered
with a paper towel, and press it until the rest of the liquid comes

Looking forward to trying your black bean soup!
