Pressing Tofu

I have always had a problem with the texture of tofu so I learned this trick 
(don't remember where).  I cut a block of very firm tofu into thirds, wrap 
and freeze the pieces.  Tofu freezes well.  Then I put the frozen piece of 
tofu in the microwave and cook on high for 10 minutes.  This cooks out a lot 
of water.  Even then there is still a lot of water and I press it out.  Then 
I slice or cube it and saute it in chicken broth, or soy sauce or a spritz of 
canola oil.  This amount of tofu is enough for two people.  Any more and I 
think the fat content is a little high for the protein.
